View Full Version : Time for a new showreel, please share your opinions

11 November 2007, 10:03 AM
Hi there creative master minds!

At the beginning of this year (2007 that is) i've made me my first showreel. Because of a upcomming selection program for a school I would really like to get accepted at, it is time for me to make a new, updated and better showreel.

My current reel is downloadable and viewable in three different ways. I hope that you guys could give me some tips and critics on the one I have now. This way, ofcourse, I can refine my upcomming reel.
Before you start watching; this was my first reel i've ever made, in just over 5 hours (this is no excuse for anything, just a sidenote ;) ). I've mixed the video on the audio because I got critized by the same school last year when this was not the case in the semi-reel I did then. It got non-finished work in it, because that way they see more of me, and might see more potential.

Small flash version (5mb): (
Medium You-Tube version:
Large 1024x567 WMV version (65mb):

ps: and the text in the beginning (not the 'showreel' and 'rick vd schootbrugge' part, the one after that) was a big mistake, it goes way to fast. It should have been better to have left it out.

Nobody? Anybody?

There has to be someone who can give me some 'you might consider doing it that way...', 'get rid of the...', ect?

This is a pretty non-specified reel, and so is my next one. I'm a bit lost on how to present my DTP and Photography work. They are pretty motionless by standard (no shit!) and I would like to make ik more moving so it blends in a lot better into the whole reel... The reason why I want to add photography and DTP work into my reel is because i've got comments about the 'design' part... and also I hope by showing my photographs that they see that I have some minor Director of Photography skill. I like to believe I have some skill.

Shameless kick...

Is it hard to give advices on a showreel perhaps?
