Red face Demo Reel Music

I was wondering how important the music on demo reels are???
I am putting together my first student demo reel and i know different kinds of music can have deifferent effects on people and it can deffinetly compliment a piece of animation!
I was just wondering what peoples thoughts were on the subject and what they have found to work well in the past??

thanks alot

Demo reel music is not important to most studios.
I prefer to have the music turned off...although a good track with a good beat helps bring a cadence to your reel.

It is a tough call though, but almost every reel I have ever reviewed has some spastic techno or matrix soundtrack on it...DO NOT DO THAT! [seriously though I am not kidding, NO Matrix soundtrack!]

Render a few tests with tracks and we can give them a listen to see if the tempo is right for your work...if you want a physical opinion.

Good luck.
