Mailbag LIVE! is a conference call with our members. Our goal is to answer a member’s question or discuss a topic that a member has expertise with on a Zoom call, where other Mixing Light members are welcome to attend and participate.

After the Team talks with the participating member, we invite other members on the Zoom call to offer their thoughts on the subject or to ask questions inspired by the discussion.

Our next installment of Mailbag Live! is scheduled for May 11th, 2021 at 3pm Eastern (12pm Pacific, 8pm U.K). Members can always find full event details and links on the  Member Events Calendar. This is a members-only meeting, so be sure you log in to see the registration link.

Mailbag Live! Topic: Building A Demo Reel That Tells A Story

A good demo reel can be the difference between landing a new project and the client choosing a different colorist. But how do you go about building a demo reel that’s not only going to showcase your work but capture the attention of a prospective client?

We’ve received a bunch of questions recently about building demo reels. Team Mixing Light has our own opinions but when we saw the demo reel of Hungarian colorist and finishing artist Dávid Láposi we knew we had to talk to him about building a compelling demo reel.

In this Mailbag Live we’ll talk to Dávid about:

• What does he consider a good demo reel?
• Why take a storytelling approach to a demo reel?
• What went into the planning of his demo reel?
• What challenges did he face in production and post?

Of course, since this is a Mailbag Live, we encourage you to ask questions and contribute your own thoughts to what makes a great demo reel.
