Film Reel Part One

Overview

A reel is what directors and actors use when they are applying for jobs or want to share their work with people in their lives.

“Hey Ahmed, do you make any cool films?”

“Totally do for sure Tynn. Check out my film reel.”

Assignment

Create a film reel that has five or more scenes from the movies you have made. It is just scenes, not entire movies, so keep it short.

Steps to Success

  • Make your first scene a GREAT one. Hook that audience
  • Keep scenes short
  • Look for scenes that you are really proud of and look great!
  • Jump from a scene from one movie to another movie and back
  • Use lots of match cuts
  • Logo at the front maybe?
  • Pick great music.  Check out bensound.com
  • Match cuts to the music
