Hi Sophie, Out of interest I googled 'CV.,show reel' and just as it sounds it is a short video clip of you, lets people see you in action !! Good luck with it, Steve

Best suggestion for a showreel, find somebody who really knows how to create one rather someone who thinks they can.
Many people think that they can shoot and edit video, but I have seen so many badly produced video's as showreels and corporate video at conferences that I despair.

It won't be cheap to have a properly produced showreel, but if done well, you will benefit from it.

I work for a lot of promotional agency's and have never been asked to provide a showreel for promotional work , I only use it for dancing and acting . Showreels are generally used for performance work and its clips from previous shows etc xx
