When: Tuesday, June 30, 2009 from 7pm to 9pm
Where: BAE Systems, 8201 Greensboro Drive, Suite 1200, McLean, VA 22102
As we approach the SIGGRAPH Conference in New Orleans, many people are asking me about interviewing there: What makes a good demo reel? How long should it be? Where can I find information about making a demo reel?
Join us on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 from 7pm to 9pm as DC_SIGGRAPH seeks to discover the answers to these questions and more at our Annual Demo Reel Night. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org (http://email@example.com) and indicate if you will be bringing a demo reel to share. You can also put you're demo on a website and we can try to link to it. (Note: BAE blocks some sites such as YouTube, so we advise bringing a CD or DVD)
Students, Interns, Rookies and Veterans are invited to take part in an open discussion and review of what works and what doesn't when it comes to the one thing that shows your skill, talent, and experience... your demo reel or portfolio. If you are preparing to interview at the SIGGRAPH Conference, looking for a way to improve your present position, or shopping around for a new one, the time to polish up your demo reel is now. If you're looking to hire, this will be a great opportunity to see a range of fresh new talent. So, burn off a DVD or grab your demo-laden laptop and meet us Tuesday, June 30 at BAE Systems from 7 to 9pm.
Light snacks will be provided (soda and chips). After the meeting, we can walk next door for continued networking and thirst quenching.
