As a 1st AC should I have a reel ?

Recommended Posts

Although they're not necessarily needed, I don't see any harm in having one (especially as someone starting out). Although I guess it depends on what you inspire to do. Do you want to climb the ranks 2nd -> 1st -> Operator -> DP/Cinematographer, or do you want to be a career AC?


Instead of just editing shots from films you've previously worked on, you could create and tailor your own showreel to show your skills: focus pulling, composition, lighting technique, etc.
