Here ya go
Not sure if you're lookin for a critique but I figure it wouldn't hurt.
Overall impression, well made (especially for only high school and limited camera quality).
A few things to consider (all my opinion so take it with a grain of salt):
*The opening timelapses are nice but repetitive, I would take out the final one of the three tree/star timelapses with the building. Also, edit out the single frames with camera flashes, it throws off the 'majesty' and just doesn't look good.
*Elephant shot is great
*Black fades look tacky and unprofessional unless they're done with a point (which lots of these don't quite seem to have one). I understand you're using them to separate different sports/scenes but if these scenes don't mesh well enough to not use a black fade, maybe you should consider a different order. Just go with simple cuts or even cross fades if that's more your style.
*I personally think intertwining the skiing and biking shots takes away from the viewer's immersion into the reel and overall dampens focus, but that's an opinion and others may feel differently.
*The slow motion is choppy. Conform your 30 fps or 60 fps to 24 fps for smooth slo-mo but don't go slower than that or else it'll just make the footage look digital and unpleasant.
*Not sure what category of 'reel' you're going for, but if you categorize this as a cinematography reel, don't include the gopro shots. They just feel out of place when mixed with a DSLR and dampen appeal.
*Watch your crushed blacks (I know this is hard seeing as you have only a t2i) but I know there's a firmware hack out there for Canon that will give you a better dynamic range and make color correcting much better. Search for it
I know this seems like a lot of cons but I'm only pointing out the negatives to help you. Overall I really liked it and I'm sure it did well in the Miner Film Festival (bummed I couldn't be there this year, wasn't back in town when it took place).
Hope I helped
