Hi Everyone,

We just updated our demo reel and wanted to get the opinion of fellow operators. We would like to hear if there are things you don't like or could be better. This is a compilation of 2 operators (Dash Adamson and myself) that work for Production Pit.



Looking forward to your feedback,

Cheers

I am more editor then operator but here are my thoughts.

I really like the reel. One of the things I like is the way the motion in the shots matches the build of the music (i.e. moves on static subjects at first then increased activity with the camera and the in frame subjects as the music intensifies). Very professional looking stuff. The only 2 shots that dont really read for me are the night shots. And the humorous out take at the end is also a nice touch.
The variety of well executed moves would definitely motivate me to hire you guys after viewing your reel.

Thanks for the input Tom,

The night shots were "day for night". I guess I was more impressed with what we were able to do with the footage in post than the actual shot :)

Cheers,
Emre

I think your reel is really strong and I wouldn't change a thing. This made for a great piece at TIVA and it does a nice job showing the diversity of what you can do with a Steadicam. Keep it up.

First congrats on actually getting a demo reel done . . . I've been meaning to do one of these since 1991 . . .hahahaha . . .who has the freakin time, the honey do list is way too long for me to work on a demo reel after shooting all day . . . . .



You guys have some really nice stuff, but I guess the only thing I would say is there isn't much diversity, it makes you look like you only worked on three projects . . . .

Rob, why you need a demo reel when you're working every day? It is absolutely unnecessary in that case, isn't it? :P

Anyway, I have lived with an old reel for years, when I took one day to collect some footage from DVDs and other media and another afternoon to edit it. Glad I've done it. But actually it is already old again...anyway...endless kind 'a thing.

Great work, Emre! I really like it.

Cheers.
Lukas

Martin;

Thanks man, drop by sometime and we'll hang out at our shop B)

Rob;

Thank you for the comments :) , glad you liked it. And you are correct its probably a complilation of only 10-15 projects (in the last 2 years). I only wanted to place stuff that we have %100 rights to the footage and recent.

Lukas;

Thank you for the kind words and you are correct as well. If I dont have time to do a reel, I am too busy to do it anyway :lol: ..........thats why it was 2 years in the making...sitting there...sitting there...sitting there... :P
