    Nice one. Loved the ending.
    My only criticism was it was (very nearly) all a compilation of shots of things that are already there. There was little to hint at your ability at storytelling be it drama of current affairs, or interview/promotional work. But then again perhaps this isn't aimed at getting you paying gigs. Perhaps that requires a different showreel.

    That's very true Tim, well spotted I thought that stuff should be a separate reel as there is so much to choose from.

    As always thanks for viewing and commenting.

    Ok so the last post in this thread was September 2009 - how did it get pulled forward? A conspiracy?

    Ha Ha. I'm all for conspiracy theories but I think you looked at the "Join Date" not the post date.

    you're probably right - but don't the shots of those slugs date back to 2009?

    They weren't slugs. Slugs are homeless!

    Due to austerity measures brought in by Iain Duncan Smith & Gearge Osborn slugs are no longer regarded as homeless if they have a rock to sleep under. :P
    Most of the footage is old, I'm old and getting older by the day.

    My take on a few of the edits:

    Love the ending!

    I would have moved the cross dissolve at 00:03 a second later to change on the key change
    The clip at 00:16 seems to be in a lower resolution (is there a frame to the left?)
    The cut at 00:17 is so slow to the music change that it looks jarring - it needs to be dead on the change
    The cross dissolve to pan looks odd to my eyes. I would have started the fade in as part way through the pan
    The way you cut at 00:34 suggests you were trying to make your wife's eye fade in from the moon. It wasn't quite lined up and looked a bit creepy!
    The sequence from 00:53 to 01:27 was very samey
    At 02:11 it seemed odd not to see the person's face
    Jump cut at 02:35 was really jarring
