My new reel for twenty 10.
I always struggle to make reels. I start off thinking that they’re going to be a load of fun and then slowly the realisation dawns on me that I’m my own worse client. To start with I’ve seen the work an unprecedented amount of time and although I’m pleased with everything I’ve included, I also know where the problems are — almost by timecode. I know what I’m capable of. I know what I’d like to be capable of and I never give myself enough time.
I had a sudden rush to create this reel after a friend and colleague sent a link to my web-site and a promise of a new reel to a Warner Records executive.
Years gone past I would create a montage of the prettiest bits of my work to my favourite track of the month, but last year i made the decision that I would reveal more of the work than try to hide behind a polished promo of bits. I think when putting a showreel together it’s easy to view other people’s and feel nervous that you have not got enough good stuff to include.
