It’s short: Casting directors are busy

If they’re looking through 50 showreels to find an actor, they won’t appreciate that yours is 5 minutes long. They may not even bother to watch it. They probably won’t even watch the whole thing. Keep it to 3 minutes or less – 3 minutes is a long time on screen. That’s where having a good editor can be vital – they’ll know what to cut and what best represents you.
