As much as I enjoy the sultry tones of your deep, sexy voice, you should definitely punctuate all those clips at the beginning with more clips that sound like your last. I only heard two clips in the whole reel that WEREN'T your sultry voice. Not that there's anything wrong with that voice, but you want to show off the different styles of commercials you can do. So you might want to include more of things like the last.
That's all I've got. Commercial isn't my forte. ^_^; Hope it helps!

Wow that last one really caught me off guard!! In a good way.
Well you definitely have a great commercial voice, especially for products like Dove. I do agree with Akumaryu. I would have liked to hear a bit more variety out of you. And it's not so much that you have to change your voice, more-so your attitude. You have the talent to blast outside of your comfort zone and try a giddy happy clip, and I would have LOVED to hear something really REALLY dark and mysterious from you with like.... thunder in the background... Maybe for a Harley Davidson commercial?
Y'know, there are always a lot of things to say with these reels and it always seems really depressing when people type out a whoe paragraph. But the way I see it, the better the reel is, the more people say. They love what they hear and they just want to hear MORE MORE MORE. And I want to hear more MORE MORE from you!! The clips that were actually in the reel were so good that I could bet you'd get a few contracts if you showed em off. I'm sure you know how unique your voice is, and THAT was what people want! Keep it up fairuza! Please please do!

Akumaryu: Thank you very much for your honest input,Aku!^^
As for adding more variety in some of the clips,I think I may have to agree with you even though while putting this demo together I hadn't fully thought about it for a commercial demo. Most of these spots I performed in this demo were from actual commercial auditions I sent off for. I'll definitely try looking around for some material that may be of more versatility in mood. Thank you once again,I greatly appreciate it!:D
Blueshadow: Thank you Blueshadow!:D
I'll have to agree with both you and Aku with adding some more attitude with some of my spots. A Harley Davidson spot and even a dark spot would be very interesting to try experimenting with!
I honestly enjoyed reading a critique that is very honest and helpful. It's really helped me to improve on my acting and what I need to work on.I see a crit of advice as a gift and a very happy and grateful piece of advice to help get an actor to really work on what their strengths and weaknesses are and what they'll need to improve on.^^
