General Information

Q: Do you have any showreel tips?

Here are some tips from our Supervisors and Lead Artists:

  1. Keep your showreel short (ie. 1.5 – 2 minutes)
  2. Your reel should be good quality (480p minimum, 720p or higher preferred )
  3. Group your work by project; leading each group with the best shot
  4. Only include your best work: Lean towards quality over quantity.
  5. Explain what you did. Provide a separate concise shot breakdown (PDF) or include short text captions within the reel to reference what you did in the shot and what project it is from. If you have them include, breakdowns, wip montages, passes etc to illustrate your work.
  6. Make you reel easy to access: Video sharing sites such as Vimeo are preferable. If you have a password, please include that in your application.
  7. Only include work you actually did yourself
  8. Do not include work from projects that have not been released, yet – or work you don’t have the rights to show
  9. Don’t use excessive wipes, dissolves etc -in most cases straight cuts are fine
