Hi,


my showreel is finally finished (2,36 min.) and im about to make the dvds to send them out to companies, do you think its a good idea to include some "full" work examples such as music videos and commercials in addition to the showreel or better leave them out ?

thanks

Hi Dominik
Your reel is very strong as it is ! i would leave the full examples out and perhaps half the length of your reel.
90 seconds is normaly the perfect length for a reel like yours.
It's a commen mistake to edit your reel to an intire song as you have. The average attention span for the people that are watching is about 10 seconds, then if you can hold them for longer you are doing well.
That being said i really liked it ;)
