Hi guys,

This is my first demo reel( ) and wanted to share with you. Any comments are welcome.

Thanks in advance, Marco

great attention to detail, great variety of clips, good pacing, the only thing is maybe the door creek at the beginning is a little too in your face, if you were thinking of adding any other clips to this vid i would recommend something sci-fi because this is mainly a 'foley' show-reel, it would give you a chance to demonstrate use of synthesis, good stuff marco, cal

Thanks for your comments!! I appreciate it a lot! – Marco Lopez Dec 6 '11 at 4:51

hy. not bad, but it should be clarified. i agree with grand sound, for example the last was too dry. i hear, u wanted to be accurate in rythm, but spend at least as much attention to howe its sounds like. try to be better positioned in the space.

Ok, thanks. I left it dry cause I wasn't the rerecording mixer. So, I wanted to be as faithfull as possible of my creative input. – Marco Lopez Dec 7 '11 at 14:26

I thought it was great, the main two slightly critical points I had were the two already mentioned with the loud door creak in the first and the last one a bit dead, but you explained all that. Maybe the camera taking is a bit loud but then the character does react to it so I can see why that is. Oh and maybe the gunshots in Absent were slightly weedy sounding, possibly a bit more realistic but not what you'd normally get in a hollywood film for example.

But yeah really really good job, well done. Dominic
