A demo reel for a guy trying to show his cinematography skills and professional applications is not intended to tell anything more than he knows his way around a camera. Unless I am misinterpreting Blake’s purpose here, he’s not focusing on storytelling, editing or other skills, only wanting to show that he can shoot footage that looks right. Right? Blake?
When I look for a shooter I want to know that the shooter knows how to shoot, not write or develop a script, tell a story or even put the footage together in a storytelling or other meaningful manner. When I’ve requested reels or samples from shooters to asses their value to my project I’ve had NO interest in anything other than their camera handling skills. Period.
