Thanks for watching guys. That's the sesond comment I've gotten on the titles. I just learned the 3D program I was using and I thought they came out good but I guess I have some work to do.

If it stopped playing it may just be because it was streaming and it had to buffer again.

I will be putting the movie up on the site at the end of February.

Alec

Umm...yes, yes and yes. Not being facetious here, but that's all good. I keep mine to around 7 minutes and include a brief (under 1 minute) montage at the beginning as an overview, then longer segments to follow. I'm a little unusual in that I like to include dialogue here and there, as I think the constant music tracks I see in most reels sort of lulls me into a stupor, where the dialogue helps bind the images to a story which is how they were intended (and the viewer can always turn off the soundtrack if they choose).

If interested you can see them here.

I think it's because it's streaming and it has to buffer again half way through. I'll post a link where you can right click and save it to yoiur desktop, that way you can download the whole thing and watch it whenever you want. It shouldn't take long to download, it's only around 3 meg.

Charles,

thanks for the reply and for the link, thats just what i was after a low down and some images to back it up, have taken in alot of your other posts here so thanks for replying..

i guess its about putting something together and then adding and subtracting as and where need - (client depending)..

.. ps: the rear veiw mirror rack focus in your reel was cool man.. steadicam footage was awesome too.. jut got one and had some fun outside last week,, handheld version and not 'wind' friendly.. all a learning curve..

thanks again

what is your "thing" director, editor , DP, producer, production company ? etc .. each would have a slightly different type reel ...
in General !! keep it all the BEST ...
when i view reels ( hiring ) i figure the worst section/spot/clip is the BEST i'm going to get from you/company and most of the time OK is not good enough ... don't make it too long .. a 10 min reel with knock out material is great .. a 10 min reel with OK material is tooooooo long ... remember if they want to see more they'll ask for more ...

Some interesting exceptions:

A- If you've only done student work, don't send in your demo reel.
An editor I know who was looking for assistant editors (for a job of only a few days) would've hired some of the applicants until he saw their reels.

B- One camerman I know doesn't even have a demo reel and gets all his jobs from word of mouth.

Demo reels for camera may not be that great (for the person hiring), since it doesn't show the takes the cameraperson blew.

2- Anyways, I would figure out who your audience is, and what they are looking for.

3- If people ask for demo reels, they might get a huge stack to go through. Typically they will just skim through the reel... put the very best stuff at the first 15 seconds. If it's for a small job, they may not even go through your entire reel.

Sadly no Steadicam is wind-friendly (or more accurately, no wind is Steadicam-friendly!) but the key is having someone carry a wind block for you--a double net works wonders (less turbulence than with a solid).

Need your feedback! :)

Hello,

I'm a new DP just about out of film school. I have some of my work available here:

http://www.jpcine.com/portfolio/portfolio.html

I know there are some very experienced and knowledgeable DP's that frequent this site. I'd really appreciate any opinions/comments regarding my work. I'm very happy to hear criticism but please keep it constructive.

Thanks,

JP

Hi John
I'm not really a DP so I can't speak too technically about your work, suffice to say if I was looking for a DP your name would be on the list! Theres a real energy and style about your work, although I must say you seem happier on DV than on 16mm (which is not a bad thing)
