Monster Crayons Internship!

Hi Guys!

I've been visiting this forum since 2001, and I've learned so many great things to help my business, Monster Crayons, grow.

I know most of you already have your own business and would not be interested in being an intern, however, I know many of you have people offering to learn from you, but simply don't have the time or resources. So, if you know anyone who would like to get into the great field of event videography, then please have them check us out.

Thanks!

Details Here...

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your feedback.

We actually get a pretty good amount of applicants each time we put up the ad on craigslist. This is the first time I put it up here at DVinfo.net.

Making it nonpaid makes the quantity of applicants less, but the quality a lot higher. We seek people who want a great learning experience and love video above all else.

After the internship period, they ususally become part of our active staff if there's a position available.

Showreels

Hi,

I realise many video editors compile show reels to market their wares and to use as a calling card or a CV.

My question is: how does one go about compiling a showreel?

* large portions of projects?
* "Showing off" use of effects, etc?
* How long should a showreel be?
* Should it contain a complete presentation or should it be designed to be entered and exited at any point?

Pretty vague I know, but just looking for a starting point.

Many thanks,

marks

i suggest you take a look at other reels ...
you can find many online ...
take a look at production houses reels in your area or country .....
if your speciality is SFX's then you show more of it ...
show you best .. IMO ok isn't good enough .. i'd rather see a 2 minute excellent reel then a 6 min ok reel ...

here's the way i look at reels - 1st i watch in without audio , 2nd time with audio ...i figure the worst section on it is the BEST i'm going to get from that person ( i have to play it safe ) - if that worst is all i'm looking for then it goes into the maybe plie ...
also once i'm interestd then i ask for a reel that has longer sections from edited projects ( 2-6 min sections) usually those reels are in the 10-20 min area ..

in general i find most reels start with a quick cutting intro ( 60-120 seconds) using clips from many projects .. then they go with sections from individual projects ...

Event shooter in Westwood (LA) Oct 10 (paid gig)

I'm looking for a second shooter for an event in Westwood on Oct 10, 2007 from approximately 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM (actual shooting time is 90-100 minutes). It is a two-camera shoot of a series of presentations on a stage from a stationary location.

I am looking for an experienced person, ideally with a Canon XL2 and a good tripod. That's what I shoot with and it's far easier to match footage from identical cameras. We'll be shooting with house lighting in a well-equipped auditorium.

This is work-for-hire. Footage is owned by the client and will not be supplied for your reel.

Please respond to me with your rate, equipment list and any online examples of similar work you've done (NOT rock videos, models getting undressed, or your kids prancing through a field of daisies...LOL).

I am based in the San Francisco area and will be flying in to shoot it.

Thank you!

I agree with Don that you need to check out other reels to get an idea of what looks good and get an idea of length etc but I'd like to think about a couple of things first.

lots of people say "I've gotta have a showreel" or "I've gotta have a website" but what for? I'm not saying you don't (if fact both are a really good idea) what I'm asking you to think about is what do I want them for? who is going to look at them? what result do I want for the investment of time and money to set them up?

Those sorts of questions will help you define your target audience and your target result - that will hopefully help you decide what to put in your showreel and on your website.

Once you know your audience you can work out the best way to reach them - DVD's in the mail / online presence(website) / handing out VCD's with a business card or ???

I just spend 2 days acting in a TVC/infomercial for a videographer friend and he spent a good deal of money to create a personal commercial with no clear idea of his audience - he wasn't clear on who he trying to reach, or what he trying to say - think about those things first

My showreel shows I can act (hopefully) your's should show you can capture and create the images that your target audience want to see, be they young couples about to get married or corporate training managers or ??

just my 2 cents worth
