Hello,

Just curious how people feel about the footage in their reels in regards to format, resolution? Perhaps you've done really nice film work, but only got an SD transfer because of cost, or even shot using a lesser quality video camera. Would you put these next to the finer 35mm or HD stuff? I consider my SD stuff to be some of my nicest work, at least on a personal artistic level, but someone told me that it didn't really flow next to the higher quality stuff.

What do you think?

Chris,

I went through this same dilema a year ago and decided in the end to only include anything above 1280x720 frame size. My thought was that the mixed formats would be distracting. In the end I did use on SD shot and did my best to 'upres' it, e.g, a low budget digital blow up.

All the best,

Rod
