Demo reel advice
I'm planning to start putting together a demo reel when I get a handle on animation however I have a few questions that I think some of our more experienced members could answer.
One what is a good length of a clip for a demo reel? How many clips would make for a good demo? Also if I create a clip of an animation, say a CG recreation of a piece of the Matrix for example, or use a piece of copyrighted material, such as a song to enhance the scene, could I get in trouble or be breaking any laws? A lot of the scenes that I think about would go well with music that I listen to but if simply using the music would get me in trouble just for putting it on a demo reel I would like to avoid that.
Any advice or tips would be greatly welcomed.
