Do you have a link to the video with sign language? I'm gonna be doing a lot soon and I'd like to see how you guys decided to tackle that communication barrier. I'd like to use the least amount of subtitles/captions as possible.

Here's a video for the deaf we did some years ago.
vimeo.com/130444539

Goals were no distracting sub-titles, but enough to hint at what was being promoted. And visual music for hearing impaired, and music for the hearing. All done in Motion. Very old project, too. Would love to have had 3D text for this way back then.

One thing we were told right off the bat was that you can't cut angles with signing. Bull, we cut angles, and it works great. Break the rules intelegently, be creative.

Great stuff!

But didn't you read the thread about reels being totally useless? ;)

Yes I said demo reels are useless, and I stand by that, they do not work for everyone, as the studio demo reel above, it works for them, but for a specialist tv news video editor, how do I make a reel? I do not own the material I edit, never will, and it will never be exciting or need 1/10th of 1% of the power of FCP X/Resolve and $10 000 worth of plug in's.

I have a skill that took years to curate, If I could somehow create a demo reel, what would it show?? Out of date, out of context, boring tv news inserts that show no talent?

That is my point, I have skills, and well how to prove this when you all say demo reel demo reel demo reel.....Makes no sense...

What a great reel!

@Msjustine Usually i bite my tongue reading your comments, but again you hijack a thread with your constant negative attitude. Leaving demo reels aside, I think it is your attitude that is in your way. You spend a lot of time thinking why things would not work out. Be positive and try. It´s the only way to find out!

Thank you for your kind opinions.

ButchM- thank you. It was actually edited by Agata Schultz, a member of my editing team. I work as an editor too and am the chief of studio. Here's my latest after-hours project:

knurrrrrrt and msjustine- I think you’re both right. Sometimes reels can be useless, as there is no eligible footage, but it’s also a quick way to communicate with your future client. 9 times out of 10 truly great reels don’t really give any advantage, but still it’s better to have them, because you never know if the next time won’t be the one.

And the rest- what do you think about the idea of showreels? Do you have them?
