what's the recommended length a sound design showreel should be? is 8 or 10min a good length or too long?


Two minutes would be ideal with your best material in the first 30 seconds.


8 minutes is way too long. I'd keep it down under 90 seconds if possible.

  • Agreed. That's half a reel! ;) Mine is just shy of 4 min and I too feel it's too long. Hope to cram it under 3 when new content is available for display. – Stavrosound Dec 10 '11 at 1:23
