Hi everyone.
Is there a "right" duration for a demo rell?

Yes, it's a minute or two at the most. Keep the pace moving, never let it lag. Audiences will turn it off the second something drags on. Whether you are an editor or a compositor, letting things lag shows that you are not a storyteller and don't understand how to "pace" the audience.

Best regards,

Thanks Ron.

I friend of mine told me this site was amazing, and I came to check.
He was totally right, I don't believe I had an answer so fast and so good.
I'll never leave this site. I love it.
Thanks once again Jon and all of you.

As a mograph artist, I usually keep mine to a little over a minute. My philosophy is to throw in all the good bits, and if the potential client/job opportunity asks to see full versions of the work, you know you hit the sweet spot!

Good luck!
