People always remember the worst thing on your showreel. So don’t feel you need to pad it out for the sake of length.
Grant Orchard

I can only really speak from an animation/design point of view. Pretty much all the stuff I look at now is online. Don’t provide a list of links. One link. With a montage/showreel of your work on it. If you have designs or illustrations then they should be obvious on the screen and simple to navigate. I am stupid. Most people can’t make it through the best stuff on the web without occasionally skipping bits, so they’re not going to watch all your stuff from start to finish if it’s too long. Keep it short. People always remember the worst thing on your showreel. So don’t feel you need to pad it out for the sake of length. No showreel should be longer than 3 minutes. If people like that, they’ll check out your other stuff, just don’t present all that other stuff straight off the bat.
