Create your first video reel

Every year I create a video reel with some of my best footage. In 2014 I decided to create an aerial footage reel for 2014 using only my aerial footage. The reel can showcase your best work and help potential customers get an idea of your talents and filming style. Now it's time to put together your video reel. Post a link to it after uploading it you youtube or vimeo. Here are some tips:

  1. Make it about 2 minutes long
  2. You can add music to your visuals to give it more life and help set the mood ( has good free music)
  3. Set aside your best video clips of the year
  4. In your video editor place your music and chosen video clips
  5. Try to cut the clips based on the beats and pace of the music. Also try group related clips together
  6. Upload to youtube or video
  7. Create a video thumbnail using a graphic editor. I like for this
  8. Post a link to your reel

Have fun with it. It's a chance to flex your creativity muscles and show the world what you can do
