Default Portfolio Showreel Help

Hi guys, I've decided to temporarily take a break from modelling and put together a portfolio showreel for job applications. Can you point me in the direction on how to do this, I have my complete models ready just don't have the first idea on how to composite them into a convincing animation showreel.

regards

It's not so much content ideas, is more of how to compose a showreel, is there any extra software required other than maya, how to create the turntable effect with models blending from wireframe to textured, etc.
