a showreel implies showing the work that you've already done. Whereas a demo reel implies that it demonstrates what you can do.

Great video Simon! I recently did a showreel as part of my end of year project at film school! I was wondering if I could get your advice for whenever I need to make my next showreel in regards to music? In this first one I made, I took projects that I did throughout the year and ones outside of school. However a lot of the videos I used already had music in them, so it made it difficult for me to really put a special song into my showreel because it would overlap with the music that's already there. I did think to perhaps remove the audio, but a lot of the videos I made were very dialogue and story heavy, so I couldn't really remove it. I still think my showreel turned out great, I was just wondering about what I should perhaps do the next time around?

Hi Simon, thanks for the tips. I’m starting to make a showreel but just wondering if you use the original footage or do you cut the best parts from your exported videos? I’m concerned about loss of quality doing it the latter way. Thanks.

Is it no recommended to put your own music in the reel if you're also a musician/composer, if that is something worth showcasing?
Quorange Quavacado

You could probably add at the beginning of the reel you that the music was composed by you

Love the Vid! But I have a Question: some people online are saying that you should NOT use copyright music for the Showreel.. What do you think? I got here a very nice piece (CC) but some famous beats would be way better(in my opinion).

Are showreels for university applications also supposed to be like this? Short and fast-paced I mean.

Hey, at 2:54 that shot with the noise, what noise have you used ? Youtube compression always takes out the noise in my videos, didn't find a way to put it and steel look nice ...

Hi, just a question here. What if you have only like 2 short films, in your opinion, is it still able to be edited? Or maybe there are better solutions to this problem on limited works.

Aloha from Hawaii been watching for some time know, I have a question how would you go around adding PSA/Interviews into a demo reel for some time i was doing allot of editing for a community media network just to learn to work with people and train myself to be a freelance video editor but know most of my work is boring PSA and interviews. My other question is do you know any resources for editor to find quality projects to work on, im not that much of a camera man and me and my famliy live pay check by pay check to buy equipment to be able to do my own work and i rather be editing others work anyway

novijanaliz - 3 years ago
Thanks for tips! You're awesome, as always. Tell me,please, should I compose in one reel different kinds of projects, or could they be edited separately to represent different kinds of editing. Because for me it seems that if you connect different styles of editing you ruin impression about your editing craft. What do you think? Appreciate in advance
