Creative Inspiration: Best Demo Reels of 2016

Jourdan Aldredge

It’s that time of the year. Let’s look at some of the best and brightest demo reels from 2016, and get those creative juices warmed up for 2017.

2016 has been a great year for those in film and video. Cameras are continuing to get better and better (while their old models get cheaper and cheaper). Digital video editing with Adobe’s Creative Cloud (Premiere Pro and After Effects) has made filmmaking more accessible and more powerful than ever. Online platforms and communities like Facebook and Twitter have made increasing video top priorities as the medium continues to grow.

Overall, 2017 is shaping up to be even better. If you’re looking to make a professional jump in the next year, this roundup of some of the best demo reels of 2016 will give you the creative inspiration to up your game.
