My friend Brandon is a filmaker. A damn good one. What happens when you hire a damn good filmaker to edit your reel? You get a damn good reel- er - film. ?? Brandon makes a very good argument for why this reel is 8min long. I pushed for shorter and he pushed back. In the end, we both won (I have a short & long version). But after reading Brandon's blog post about it: LONG FORM CONTENT IS FINALLY HIP , I just might agree with him.
Either way, I am extremely happy with both versions. Check it out for yourself!
