I am beyond excited to announce the release of my latest demo reel for on-air hosting and reporting. With all of the various productions I’ve been involved in over the last two years, an update to my reel was much-needed and it’s been a long time coming! I finally put together something I feel is a solid representation of my skills and experience.
The hardest part about compiling a reel is deciding what to leave in and cut out. It’s simply impossible to fit in every on-camera appearance, so all emotional and nostalgic attachments must be left behind in order to identify the strongest clips. From there, balance and flow are very important. I also strove for variety in terms of content, locations, stand-ups and interviews.
In creating this demo I had to remember that the point is not to show every single thing I’ve done, but to provide an adequate sample of my overall background while sprinkling in my personality. Despite the technical challenge of acquiring clips of all shapes and sizes and trying to fit them into a cohesive unit, I think I fulfilled my objective. There’s something rewarding about viewing the most special highlights of my career (so far) all in one place. But my journey is far from over and I hope my reel will be ever-changing for years to come.
