    Default Please Check Out Our 2012 Showreel And Tell Us What You Think

    Hey, we are a production company based in Manchester. This is our first year running and we have made a showreel of the work we have created.

    Your got some good stuff in there. I was feeling it might be a bit too long for a reel. I feel if you were a little more strict about what you keep in it, you'd end up with a better reel.

    For example the shot of the girl at 0:24 while an interesting shot is going in and out of focus, then the shot at 0:26 is again soft focus wise and poorer quality compared to the shot that follows at 0:28. If I notice these things then other people looking at your reel will also notice them.

    It took me weeks to get a reel together and mine is still rubbish.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree with MB, and you could probably lose the majority of the soft porn images for a start, astonishing as it may seem, females watch show reels too.

    Firstly i would like to thank you both for watching and providing feedback on our showreel. However i am not sure we agree with you labelling some our work as 'soft porn'. This in fact is actually quite demeaning and an insult to not only our work but to the work of Matthew Comer an established and award winning photographer. I understand if you believe the showreel may be designed or targeted at a male audience but this is not our intention. Our company specialises in music and fashion based projects and therefore taken out of context we can understand your response. However it is NOT soft porn (images or video that are designed to arouse an individual), and we feel this categorisation to be heavy handed. However like we said before we are glad you took the time to watch and give feedback on our work and i hope that now explaining more it doesn't appear as offensive to yourself.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for your comments.

    I was feeling it might be a bit too long for a reel. I feel if you were a little more strict about what you keep in it, you'd end up with a better reel.
    I agree looking back, I think 3 minutes may be too much for a showreel and I think there are a few shots that we could have taken out. It's always hard to constantly look at your work subjectively after working on it for hours on end. Thanks for the comments

    Again, I can understand your point as the modelling images have been taken out of context (they are part of our biographical work produced for a well-renowned photographer). I think labeling the images as "soft porn" however, undermines our quality of work and our ethics as a company. as none of our work is meant to simply titillate. Also, insinuating that woman would not want to watch our showreel because of its content is an outright invalid point. Again, I understand your point and respect it, however I think the phrasing may have come across to us as slightly ignorant. If this was not your intention then I sincerely apologise

    Thanks

    Josh
