  • Making An Editing Reel

    I have humorous clips (I hope), drama, suspense and murder clips from my two movies. One is minidv (Us Sinners) and the other is shot with a Canon T5 or something HD like that. There's 18 clips and they run 17 minutes. Which of course is TOO long.

    All the clips are worthy (IMO). But, how many would you use? I'm guessing 2 of each and start with average drama then pop in the comedy, suspense and end with murder.

    This is a narrative reel, so the clips have to be a little longer because I need to show I can cut a scene with emotion. I'm guessing the reel will be about 8 minutes long. Doesn't that seem long?

    Can anyone point me to a good feature film editing reel?
