Great looking reel...but it does get a little repetitive. Cut 30-40 seconds out and it would be amazing.

I'm a freelancer that just moved back to NYC and I've found that the usual boards like Craigslist ( and Mandy ( are a good place to start. There's also a great site called NewsToday ( that has an employment board as well as links to info on design and film/video.

When I got back here, I started calling around and asking for informational interviews with creative directors of small post houses. I'd ask them to look at my reel and talk to them about the job market, etc. A few times, this got me work and eventually I got a perma-lance job out of it...most of the time people will be willing to give you 20 minutes to look at a reel and talk...if your reel is good and you're cool with them, then they might remember you the next time something comes up.

Anyway, hope this helps...
