Guns in a Demo Reel
Posted 01 November 2012 - 09:22 PM
I feel guilty posting a second thread in only a day's time, but I've been working on my second demo reel for a few months now, and I'm ready to get it up.
I have a nice 30 second sequence from a film I did that involves 30 seconds of soldiers with assault rifles running though the woods. There's no firing of the weapons, just holding them. I'd love to include the sequence, since it's some of my best work, but I'm concerned that the weapons may turn off producers.
Is this an acceptable sequence to leave in? If it cost me so much as one client, it wouldn't be worth it, but if it's not a big deal, that be great.
My clientele is primarily based in Europe, so I'd appreciate any feedback from operators in that area.

By all means, use your best footage.

On the other hand, it depends on the clients you are looking for. If you have clients that are anti guns fanatics (I am anti guns but don't mind a good war movie), you may want to have a second PG version of your demo reel.
