Multiple Demo Reels?
by Ryan Shovey on Apr 24, 2009 at 10:48:01 pm
I have a demo reel here
My question is should I do a different reel for each service I provide? I do not only editing, but also directing, After Effects work (Motion graphics, visual fx, and color correction), DVD authoring.... etc... one reel specifically for each?
I bring this up because I'm a little confused about what exactly to do. The bulk of my work are videos I have written, directed, DP'd, and edited with special fx/ motion graphics. Only a couple videos I haven't worn multiple hats on. So if I make multiple reels, they would show a lot of the same thing. Any advice?
Maybe I can just tweak this reel to have it all? Is that professional? I'd appreciate any advice, thank you.

I would have a catch all reel just like you currently have. Make sure that is the one most people see, unless you are trying to get specific work. If someone asks for a SFX reel then make one for them. If you have a website and the time I don't see anything wrong with multiple reels. That way the user can view what they are specifically looking for. Remember, you want them to ask for more. Hope this helps.
