reel posted, looking for thoughts in Showcase Posted June 8, 2009 · Report reply For such a strong track as New Noise, I would have expected much more of a fast-paced reel with tons of quick edits after the song takes off. My recommendation? Cut the lead in of the song immediately after your intro title so that the explosion really shows off your work. And clip the reel to probably less than a second. If you don't have a ton of work, don't feel like you have to fill up time. Just work with what you have. The goal is to be yourself and be transparent with where you're at.
