Crooked Path Films 2012 Demo Reel
It’s been awhile since I made a reel, so I figured what better time than at the start of the new year?
I’ve seen what feels like thousands of demo reels. There’s a lot of differing opinions on what should be in a reel or how inclusive of different titles/jobs it should entail. I guess I could make a separate DP reel, editing reel, directing reel, and corporate reel, and any other reel that would fit particular titles. But in my experience, most of my clients…whether they be companies, agencies, directors, or Mr. Joe-Blow-Make-Me-A-Film… just want to see how my abilities to create compelling visuals stacks up to others.
And that leads me to our underlying ideology at Crooked Path Films: We strive for cinematic storytelling whether shooting internal corporate films, tv spots, motion pictures, or anything else for that matter. The videos I selected are ones we created that I believe have strongest emotional visuals to convey that ideology. Whether I’m looking to take on another corporate client, get hired as a director by an agency, or a DP by another production company…this reel is what I believe they need to see.
