I have a question regarding reels. What is the preferred media of choice these days?
VHS or DVD? Or, is it either?
I’m working in Denver, If anyone locally has the answer, I’d appreciate it.
Thanks in advance

DVD,DVD,DVD. You can better present your stuff, on computers, on tv’s. More options. Have full length projects on it if they are keen to see abit more, as well as have a short clip reel.
No choice really. As a newish director, from editing/gfx background. I will take more notice of a well presented DVD.
That said, don’t just burn a dvd and write showreel on it with a marker. You have the oportunity to present in a coherent funky way. Don’t let that opportunity go. With IDVD it could not be more simple. Its not just about the projects you have on it. Treat your DVD reel as a project unto itself. That shows your approach, style, and ability to meet your objective to the end. Make yourself the client. Its much more an insight into what your about, for you and others! 🙂
Sorry not from your area tho, I’m in Sydney, Australia.
