Good advice... they used to say 6 minutes, but I agree, around 3 minutes is probably better these days. Make sure the information is relevant... don't include a whole bunch of motion graphics work if your going for a camera man job.

If you're doing a reel to get freelance work, or be self employed, consider doing a reel about yourself and your services rather than a reel showing off a bunch of eye candy.

Actually, this might be a great way to get an employer's attention too... do a reel about why they should hire you, and let your skills rip... that would catch my attention. Unique.

good luck!
