Reel delivery

Once you have designed and sequenced your reel, you need to finalize it in player form and get it out into the world. See Chapter 7, “Repurposing and Optimizing,” for some technical suggestions on encoders and players, and Chapter 13, “Presenting Your Portfolio,” for how to disseminate and present it.

Creating multiple reels

As recently as 2005, you slaved over one perfect reel as your calling card, and sent it everywhere. That has begun to change. In the current marketplace, you can miss an opportunity just because your title screen and lead-off clip appear to put you in the wrong category for a freelance project. This is easily avoided by planning for the eventuality. We live in a world where the gods have given us non-linear editing tools, and it would be a pity to ignore the gift. Use your time in Adobe After Effects, or in Apple Final Cut Studio to build reel variations for the alternate job positions you can imagine yourself being qualified to fill.
