I've just completed my demoreel. Have a look if you have a spare moment. i have one question about it though, I have put at the end of my reel some credits. As far as i remember, i haven't seen a reel with credits before. There's a couple of reasons i did it for. One is I just wanted to be fair and not to take credit for someone else work, and the other is that i hate reels that obviously have scenes that whole team of artist worked on and you can't just stop thinking 'what exactly did you do on it'. So i was just wondering what do you recon, Are the credits unnecessary, they don't bother you or they're alright? let me know,

Nice showreel I've seen a lot of ur stuff on TV
From the showreels I've seen ur correct they don't credit other artist's, what ppl tend to do is list the aspects of the shot they did work on as well as what studio it was for. Employers will still be able to know that the shot wasn't entirely done by you even without the credits.

All the advice I've gotten from hr/recruitment departments and school says that it's important to show your own work, or if you include something with others' work (which is often the case), make it clear what you did (but like astroAJ said, not necessarily crediting the names of the other artists - it's implicit that others worked on it when you say which parts you did).
A lot of the times though, I've seen people not include it in the video, but in the caption with timings (like on Vimeo or YouTube, where you can link to times in the vid).
Credits in the captions can look really messy - your way is clean and fits with video, not too long either; the only crit is that it's still not clear which parts you did and which others did, because of the amount of info given in the time space - an area where captions work better.
we're all different [...] but there's something Fantastic about that
