Demo Reel shots

Hi guys,

2 weeks until graduation from VanArts's visual effects program. (classmate with Rohit!)

Here's a link to my blog, the top 3 shots (Alley, Temple, Spacedock) are going on for sure.

The sunset and forest ones I'm not sure.

Looking forward to your critiques

Hello Stephanie

Keep in mind that a reel with 2 strong shots is better than having 2 strong shots plus 1 not as strong shot
I know it can be hard to decide but in general the more photo-real something looks, the better it is. Judging which shots to include also reflects your artistic proficiency and how well your "eye" is trained.

Enjoy your last week of school.

And make sure you have a Vimeo, as it is currently the preferred platform over YouTube and allows easier access for most.

I have my videos on vimeo, but the basic account only allows 1 HD video uploaded per week. I could upgrade my account but it's pricey for a poor student :P

Allo Stephanie,

Another fellow alumni of Milan's school Seema and Milan have great tips. If you needed to upload your HD videos now while looking for a job, it might be worth it to upgrade to Plus (which is 9.99 a month) then you get priority transcoding after you upload your video, enabling you to get views faster and sooner. If you can wait, that's fine.

But if you're trying to get a demo reel up, just one well edited HD video is all that's needed, instead of many separate ones, which is more secondary to the main, solid reel.
