How do most of you send your demo reels out? I have a DVD ready to go, but I am wondering if an interactive Flash CD would work better. The demo reel would be saved as a Flash file and I could also put my resume and other interactive tidbits on the CD. Do you think most employers would find an interactive CD or a DVD more accessable? Also what kind of packaging do you send your reels out in?
I don't think it's an either / or situation. Both have their advantages, but the DVD format can be played just about anywhere. Maybe your solution is send out DVDs by mail and post a Flash version for the Web.
Absolutely do both. Some shops like having a hard copy to critique and hold on to when the need arises. Others, like ours, tends to ALWAYS watch someone's website and waits for an opportune time to put in a DVD. The email portfolio is just so easy for employers to look at.
