Guys the point of a showreel is that people won't bother watching full films, but they might watch a showreel. It should be around a minute, certainly no more than 2.

I do agree with you, but I also believe that the point of a show reel is to demonstrate and show your ability and talent of filmmaking, music composition, or acting to others, such as if you are being considered for a job. However, the show reel should be short in time length like you stated and you should just pick selected material you are the most proudest of to display to others. I also think of show reels as a more visual resume.

Hey guys, thought I'd drop in and I found this thread.

Hope you enjoy mine. I assemble my demo reels as more of a visual business card...a place that gives a short sweet teaser of my work where, if you like it, you can find more.
