One great way to get inspired is watching cool videos, and nothing better than videos made of portfolios of very creative people, it's like getting two in one. Here you be able to spend a few minutes watching some awesome show reel videos full of art, design and motion graphics.

What's a Show Reel?

"A demo reel, or show reel, is the motion picture or video equivalent of an artist's portfolio. It is typically used as a tool to promote the artist's skill, talent, and experience in a selected field, such as acting, directing, cinematography, editing, special effects, animation, or video games and other graphics. The demo reel is frequently submitted with a résumé to a prospective employer. When a reel contains scenes from actual productions, a shot list or credit list may also be submitted to describe the artist's specific involvement in each portion of the reel. While the usage of video excerpts on such showreels can be regarded as a breach of copyright, it is generally accepted in the film industry to do so, as it is the only tool of an artist to actually self-promote her/his work." by Wikipedia
