    Sorry for the bad music...

    Phantom Demo Reel from Kansas

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks, Ed

    P.S. As I write this, the file is still uploading to youtube, in case you get an error, it'll be available soon.

    Well, while I'm not too experienced at flying/shooting myself,
    a general rule with demo reels of any kind is to "keep it short" in order to keep the viewers interest.
    -3-5 minutes is the norm.
    So probably would be ideal for you to cut the shots that contain the most shake/jello, and focus on the the cool smooth stuff you have in there.

    Thanks, yeah I realized that pretty quick. I replaced it with a 5 minute and am working on a 3 minute with more footage I've been shooting. I've also gotten better at keeping the jello out in the first place as well as removing it in post.

    Maybe I should also not call it a Demo Reel, that seems to have specific meaning in the film industry that I wasn't aware of. Just my first week of flying.
