Constructive criticism wanted

This is my first attempt at making a demo reel. All the footage is taken from productions that ive been involved with (either directing, producing, editing, post production,etc). Id love some suggestions on how i can make it better/more effective.



Thanks in advance,

i think all the footage looks great but that song is rather atrocious

What would you suggest instead? Most if not all the demo's i see have either some type of generic electronica/techno music or a popular song, so I kinda wanted to move away from that. Also the song is cut down from like 4 min.

i like the idea of it put to a rock song but the sepultura/godsmack-ish guitar is what i found the most off-putting. perhaps something bluesy yet upbeat or maybe something spaghetti western-ish? The song still works. The whole thing flows really well and the people you're going to be showing this to probably aren't as concerned with the music. this is just personal opinion

p.s. - sorry if i'm dissing your band.
