Alright folks, buckle up for this one.
Double-tap if you’ve ever heard this (very made-up) statement.
This “rule” might have been accompanied with something like “because CDs don’t have time to watch long reels.”
This is true!
Do you know what else is true?
We also don’t have time to watch 1-minute reels 🙃
That’s right—with 10k+ submissions per episode/project and very little time to spare, we’re looking at seconds.
Also, did you know that a majority of the reels presented to us in the guest star & up category are well over 5 minutes long?
We’re used to it all.
What’s important for you to remember is that we know how to navigate your reel efficiently.
We don’t need anything trimmed down for us. 𝙒𝙚 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙩𝙤 𝙢𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚, 𝙩𝙧𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙪𝙨.

Focus less on quantity of your reel and more on quality.
We know how to find the good stuff—𝙬𝙚 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙪𝙨.
