well, i'm working on my first showreel to (hopefully) get me some jobs, and i was wondering how you guys went about yours. questions that come to mind off the top of my head are:
how many pieces do you typically find on your average showreel? as much as there's room on the disk? or maybe, not more than ten? add something of every genre you think you are able to pull off well, or concentrate on not more than 2-3 genres and try to find that niche for yourself?
do you only add stuff you did specifically for games, or dou add stuff you did for tv/commercials/multimedia/whatever as well? is it a good choice to mix these different things together or should one rather keep them seperate?
another important thing: do you send your reels out as an audio-cd, as data cd, mixed mode, or as i was planning, as a dvd with a nice surface to click your way to the different genres of music?
i'm sure there's lots more things to be considered that i didn't think off, so please offer any advice that you are willing to share, it's much appreciated.
thanks for now,
