I guess the "showcase" is temporarily gone, so I'd uploaded two short videos on my own.
the first one is a project for my class last november where I had to portray pain in exactly one minute, no more no less.

the other one is a short fight I shot with my two friends, we were trying to go for an old-school kungfu type of choreography and aesthetics, this was part of the video storyboard, we haven't finished the real thing yet:
“Tragedy is a close-up; comedy, a long shot.”

I actually liked these. I like your use of layered audio tracks, as well as the editing, in the first, and the camerawork in the second, notably that one part when the guy on the left does some thing in which he moves his arms to the side and brings them back, and the camera fallows the movement. I enjoyed them immensely.

Yeah, I just watched these.

The first one, I really liked this one visually.  Had a really good rhythm to it.  I liked the idea of the letter being read over it all with the music on the right channel, but it was a little distorted... the sounds wasn't that great... but  still a really well-put-together piece.

The second one was really quick, but looked put together really well.  Unlike 99% of every other indie/student flick I've ever scene, it really looked like fighting.
