Title:Jordan Lehman Directing & Cinematography Reel 2015
(year is optional)
Job title/role:Director, Cinematographer, Editor, etc. (What role you played in projects)
Locations: Winter Park, FL & Orlando, FL (Where projects took place)
Description: Here is where my description with a minimum of 100 words would go…
.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.”
