    I really enjoyed it. Definitely kept my attention the whole time.

    If I had to pick apart anything I'd say the weakest graphic would be the rit dye packaging folding up at :33-:35 but I thought everything else was very strong and appealing.

    Very nice work, I really like you've managed to compress some very nice work into a slick little package.:cool:

    quick and exciting very good :)
    the packaging piece is bland, can you dolly in and maybe tumble the camera a little?
    only critique is that zip up at the end is cut too quick.
    you had it nice and slow at start but at the end something where you can at least see it going up as ending.
    cant get the zipper feel ;)

    Nice reel! I like how the way you linked up different works at a quick yet bearable pace. Keep it up!

    Nice! My background is in print but I've been getting more and more into motion/video editing and this was a great example of how far I have to go ha.

    I agree with the rest, it was very good.

    It reminds me of MK12's Reel, with the in your face graphics, and catchy tune.

    Looks great. Remember who you are showing it to. While I liked the music, I could absolutely see how it could turn off some Agency people. Tone it down.

    I have to disagree i don't think its too invasive and works very well with the tone of the imagery.... i have seen reels with alot worse choices in music... my own is a prime example... :D

    Also you can see that the reel has been cut using the track at certain parts... so changing it would require re-editing the whole sequence.

    A reel should be recut once a month if you are doing a bunch of work. But, me being 32 I like it. I know from people I have worked with the DVD would have been taken out and dismissed 15 seconds in by some agency suits. Remember, a reel is to show your work... since this is a graphics reel it should be about the graphics and not so in your face with hip-hop.

    If you could find a 'karaoke' version of the song with no lyrics it would help the cause. My $.02

    PS.. your motion graphics are sick. Good work!
