Demo Reel- 2016 Edition

"If you're not busy being born, you're busy dying." -Bob Dylan.

One of the most challenging aspects of creating videos for a living is taking some time to look back and reflect. As soon as I'm finished with one project, it seems like there's another one on deck that demands my full attention almost immediately.

The last time I created a demo reel was in 2014, and the main purpose then was to acquire more freelance work because I was relying on that to support my family. This time is a little bit different. This time it was more about taking time to look back and reflect. When I collected all the videos I filmed and edited over the past few years and dropped them into a timeline- I had over 6 hours worth of finished videos! I'd easily estimate that it took hundreds of hours of raw footage to make all these videos. The point being- I've been busy over the last few years!

It was really great to take the time to look back. There was some stuff that I thought was great when I filmed it that I didn't think was so great now, but there was also stuff that turned out really well that I had forgotten about. I saw a lot of patterns and style choices I've developed over time. It also challenged and encouraged me to continue to push myself to grow and improve.

So with no further ado, I present the 2016 edition of my demo reel, enjoy!
