Producing a Powerful Demo Reel …

There are many factors to consider when producing a Demo Reel. While the category of your talent, skills or genre may be diverse, below I have narrowed down some of the most important factors to be considered in producing a successful demo reel.

DEMO REEL INTRODUCTION…

The first few seconds of your reel will indeed establish a clear first impression of you to the viewer. Perhaps he will be impressed and stay to watch on, or perhaps he will in fact pull the plug. So, consider making an introduction to the reel, a quick, perhaps 30sec., intro style compilation of all your highlights. This strategy will not only ensure the audience’s full, undivided attention, but will give you an unequivical opportunity to showcase your work with a powerfull impression.

DEMO REEL LENGTH…

While it is understood that in order for the audience to get a full measure of your talent, it is important that you include everything that you can do, in detail, into your Demo Reel.

Ok, but let’s be realistic, as talented as you may be, most agents, promoters, and/or hiring executives have limited time. In fact, how long before their phone rings and you loose their attention all together for a reason which is beyond your ability to entertain. So, keep it short… between the 30sec. intro, and the remaning 3-1/2mins. keep the total at under 4 minutes and likely if there is any interest, your strong impression will be enough time to prompt a call.
