Job title/role:
Director, Cinematographer, Editor, etc. (What role you played in projects)

Description: Here is where my description with a minimum of 100 words would go…

Reel Requirements:

Time length:

.30 seconds-2 minute Reel (if you don’t have one then I would advise you cut one together). Typically a DCBS student Reel consists of 5-6 projects, and roughly 5-20 seconds for each project featured in edit. Length of each project varies but this is a good model to start your edit off with.

Cutting to Music:

Common practices are to use one audio track that will cover the entire length of reel. According to Writer & Editor Mike Wilkinson “If the video itself doesn’t have any spoken words (like a narration or voiceover) then I may use a song that has vocals, but most of the time I go for instrumental pieces. I find that vocals in music can compete with your talent speaking on camera.

Intro Title Graphics:

First 5-10 seconds of Reel must have a title graphic that reads “First Name Last Name ‘REEL TYPE’. Example would be Abby Greenlee Cinematographer REEL (year optional). Adding you branding bumper/motion graphics project is common practice at the start and or end of Reel.

End on Black:

End of Reel must end on black frame. Best practice is to use a fade out transition.
