Need Urgent Advice for Disney Reel

Hey guys, I've put together a rough version of the reel I'm going to send to Disney for their internship. I need some advice about part of a sequence that I'm unsure about including. My makeshift reel can be found at:

I know that my name and contact info need to be on there and they will be. The baseball pitch will be rendered as well. I just threw this together so I could get some advice really quick.

Anyway, I'm unsure about wether I should include the weight lifting parts from last quarters final project. I dont really want to include the part where the character walks with the ball, just the part when he lifts it and then when he puts it on the platform.
Here's the file:

Do you guys think I should include any of that? Thanks!

Actually to tell you the truth, its heaviest for me when he's walking with it. My gut feeling tells me they're gonna watch through if you have more drawn stuff just because it isn't another 10SC kind of reel...

Good luck, JC

If you don't want to include it, then don't. If you are ever unsure if something should go in your reel, then don't put it in. Only put your BEST work in there. It's better to have one 5 second shot thats really good, than having that one shot with 30 seconds of other average work.

Ok, I just watched the lift now. Yes, don't include it. It's by far not your best work. It's cut too far out so you don't see much, the timing of all the actions and beats are very even. I'd also take out the Ballie turn around. I understand that it's supposed to be like a military about face, but it looks like it's just stiff, blocky and not finished. Everything else looks really nice.

Thanks Scattered and Animated Ape! I'm getting mixed info on if I should include the clip or not. One person said to include all of it because Disney would be interested in its story. Other's have said to only include the first lift. Scattered, you're the first person to like the "walk" part.

Ape, I'm inclinded to agree with you about the about face. You're the third person to say that about it so that clip will be removed. Thanks guys!

If anyone else has an opinion to offer, I'd love to hear it!:D
