32 Individual Artist Demo Reels - Inspiration Galore!


Now, last week we had studio demo reels, and while that is all well and good, a lot of us can't relate. They use Flame, Nuke, and a lot of other high end equipment and software. Well, here are 32 demo reels from guys and gals just like us, who are still finding ways to make awe-inspiring artwork!

    How a Creative Professional's Portfolio and a Speaker's Reel Can Work Together4 creative profesional portfolio and speaker real
    An amazing portfolio is crucial to selling creative services: if your potential clients can't be sure that you've already done work that meets their standards, it's hard for them to tell if you'll be able to handle such work in the future.

Put together, your portfolio shows that you can do what you say, while your reel shows that you can talk about what you know.
