I think it's in with the times. Shows you have good range and establishes a pace that's difficult to get bored with. Will at least get your foot in the door for a deeper viewing of a specific reel.
I'm new on this site and just wanted to say hello as well as plug my first short-doc. I've been shooting for about 1.5 years now after a career switch. Anyhow, it's made it into the semi-finalists (95) films in FocusForward festival and needs your views/votes to continue! I hope you like it, critiques are most welcome. P.S: What these guys are doing is amazing. Growing a bio compatible replacement for plastics! http://vimeo.com/focusforwardfilms/semifinalists/51884523
