If it's a big company (ILM PIXAR), you'd better wow them with nice cover design and not some blanc dvd cover with my reel scribbled on the dvd.

well, i'm glad i went to the trouble of creating a dvd cover for my showreel,
here take a look, nothing amazing, but it's better then a blank cover,
sent off like 10 showreels on dvd last friday, now it's time to play the waiting game,
