So basically I do a lot of stuff. I started making videos two years ago with a vhs camera. yeah I said vhs. Any way I'm sick of working minimum wage jobs and not being able to afford things like new gear and the big one RENT. I made this demo
which is made up of videos I have made for contests, music videos for friends, and short films me and my friends have written. I don't have a formal degree in media but am obsessed with it and would love to get payed for my passion.
So my questions are
1. does this video make you want to hire me or make you think i'm a waste of time?
I agree with Mark. Also, I hate Demo Reels with a bug (Your Name in phone number) in the bottom corner. As for how important is a degree? Coming from a guy with a Bachelors Degree. I would do an internship. You will gain a lot of real world experience and the place you internship for might even hire you or hook you up with some contacts. Plus you can get some non-VHS stuff on your reel. Hope this helps and best of luck.
Thanks for the input. Your right about the fx. I made one of the transition and my brain was drooling over the colors and took it too far. I ended up getting a gig at a local studio. Hopeing to learn alot!
I agree with Mark to. The video is showcasing the background music than the video skills. There's editing but such doesn't showcase your skills. Maybe you could show us a raw video you shot, edited, directed or what not. But i enjoyed the video still.
