Acceptable Demonstration Reel Requirements

Think of a demonstration reel like a video resume.  It’s a short collection of video/film/photography projects you have worked on or have been a part of producing in the past.

Most “demo reels” just include a short segment from each of your video samples (usually 10 to 20 seconds), so you don’t necessarily need to include the entire film or video. These are then edited together, back-to-back, or in a creative way to showcase your experience as a videographer, editor, producer, or another crew position.

Start your demonstration reel with a title graphic that includes your name, e-mail address, and phone number. Then edit your samples into a 1 to 2 minute video (depending on how many samples you have to include).

What We Are Looking For 

Ideally, your demonstration reel should showcase your best videography and editing skills, and include a variety of at least five different video, photography, or motion graphics samples from past projects you have either produced yourself, or been a crew member on. Production music should also be included.  

Once completed, export your demonstration reel as a video file and upload it to a video sharing site like Dropbox, Vimeo, or YouTube. Upload the link to the Demo Reel supplemental item in your Future Student Account (click on your application, then Supplemental Items & Documents).
