Hi Producer fishies! I’m trying my hand at putting together a reel but wanted advice - if you have internal client work do you include it and just pw-protect your reel? Is a playlist of vids ever acceptable instead of an edited reel? All advice is welcome!

^ That! Show the full spots. An edited reel is best for Directors showing a food montage of their work.

I think a password protected link for internal work is the way to go (unless it was something highly confidential of course!). I have a Vimeo page where people can find the full-length versions of all of my spots. You never know if someone is looking for a producer who has done something very specific, so I prefer to have it all there rather than an edited reel.

Agree with others here, for a producer the most helpful thing is the full context of a spot, not a flashy sizzle, so make sure can you detail your contribution to the project, always try to include a little bit of color and story and context on what got you there, any challenges you faced and overcame. I do this on my reel and whenever I bring in producers I like to get a sense of What they contributed, what challenges they faced, and overall presentation and storytelling ability to boot, in terms of the write up that accompanies the content.

I used to talk-to-type, so excuse typos and bad grammar here (speaking of presentation skills)
