That said, I'm also noticing the tendency to make your DVD menu more cluttered than the ones in a 24-hour diner.
So, what should a resume tape menu look like?
It shouldn't look like anything, because it shouldn't exist.
Put yourself in the NDs place. You have to watch a few hundred of these and the last thing you need to do is put a DVD in a machine and have to navigate through a menu. Why should a manager have to click on "standups" or "packages" or "anchoring?"
If you're sending DVDs, you should burn them so that they start to play immediately as soon as they are put into a machine. The ND shouldn't have to push a single button to watch your best work.
Menus won't knock you out of the running, but they just make a ND roll his eyes and shake his head. Make a News Director's job as easy as possible; he shouldn't have to spend any time searching for your best work.
