I'm trying to update my demo. I have watched others and there seems to be no standard way to do it. I've read that if you are a Director, Editor,Cinematographer, etc., that you should have a demo and resume for each position. Most of the work I've done, I've been the jack of all trades. I've also read that that's not always a good thing, so should I only list 1 position per project, at least on a resume.
I've just gotten really frustrated because I can't figure out what people want other than the best work. It just seems I'm missing something.
I think it depends. I work for a small company of 5 full time employees. The more you can bring to the table the better. And a reel with all of your best stuff would be much better. I don't know but would imagine that a "big" outfit would want to know what you can do for a specific job. They can always ask for more and you can always put text on the reel to spell out what you specifically did on each segment. I would put together an all encompassing reel and be ready to customize it or take things out at a moments notice. Hope this helps.
