The goal of the website is to show all the other stuff you can't fit into the 3-4min demo reel. Sort of like the "show me all you've got" dvd you had talked about. I like the idea of creating a seperate montag-y thing for the site and the DVD, leaving it out of the actual demo.

But that makes me wonder what direction I should take the demo? Currently I work for a small post house who's clients are generally corporate or inudstrial. The stuff I've edited is just that - corporate and industrial. It's also not very exciting (good edits, but the subject matter is kind of slow). Do you think this matters? I know a good edit is a good edit, but I'm looking at this demo reel as a way to sell myself in a short period of time - and I only get one shot to make a good impression.

So is slower, maybe not as interesting stuff worth showing, as long as it's good? Or should I just focus on flashier, faster stuff to keep the attention of a possible employer?

Nate
