I'm interested in finding industrial/educational voiceover work - e-learning and the like. I'd like to create a demo reel specifically for that. I have some clips that total about 1 minute. But I have some questions:
- Should there be any background music/sound? Doesn't seem to me like that would be appropriate for my purposes, but then, I've never heard a demo reel that didn't have some. - I have 3 clips, about 20 seconds each. I wanted to make sure to showcase the completion of a thought, since I'm looking for instructional work. Does that seem appropriate? I know most demo reels seem to have 5-6 clips, but those are usually to highlight a particular voice, not the complete thought.
I'd appreciate any thoughts or experiences or advice on the subject.

There are some demos that don't need music/sfx. A great example of one type of demo that uses just voice clips is audiobooks. Usually music/sfx in a demo is meant to make it sound like it might be an actual project the talent recorded for. What I'd do, if I were you, is look at actual materials that use the type of voice over you're trying to make a demo for, and make your clips sound like they realistically could have been pulled from those.
