Where to start ?

Hi there,

I've recently completed a two year course in Media (Moving Image) which has emphasis on both pre and post television production. During those two years I have thoroughly enjoyed video editing so have decided to pursue a career in it. The majority of editing has been on the back of assignments so one of the problems I'm having is that I don't have a huge amount of work to display within my reel.

Current work includes:

8Min Documentary
Music Video
30Sec Advert
5Min Single Camera Drama
2Min Kick Boxing Talent Video

Other programs learnt while on the course include Photoshop CS3, Maya 7 (Basic Knowledge), Adobe Prem Pro CS3, Cool Edit, Adobe Audition and Adobe After Effects.

I will be creating a show reel and job hunting in 2 months or so and would like to know what attributes an employer and editing house are looking for in regards to myself and my show reel.

I want to be prepared and as professional as I can be so any advice really helpful.

East Sussex / London (United Kingdom)
