You looked at my reel and gave me some very candid and concise critique. Although it was short, the feedback you gave me really clicked. It was exactly what I needed to be made aware of in my work at the time, and it went on to immensely influence how I approached reworking my reel. I think the last year would have been pretty different without that feedback."TIP: Have your Portfolio OfflineIt may sound obvious, but we are amazed at how often people try to show us their demo reel and fumble around complaining about the wifi.
