View Full Version : What are employers lookin for in Demo reel?

05 May 2005, 07:14 PM
I'm in the visual effects program at my school, and beginning my demo reel. What sort of shots are employers looking for, ie composites, motion capture, pure CG? Do they want to see wires of 3d models, matte paintings, etc? Thanx

It widely varries on what your discipline is. I will say though, no matter what it is, if it doesn't grab my attention in the very first shot, it lasts about 15 seconds on fastforward and then gets ejected.
