Showreel advice

Any thoughts on structure of showreels for sound editing, foley, sound design (not music) etc on indie features?

Assuming no one really watches more than 2 or 3 min of a reel, I've struggled to find any reels that show off the skills of a sound editors work. And I can't think of anyway to cut up the film work I've done that doesn't end up just looking like a video editors show reel. ie lots of pretty pics and not showing off the sound.

Any thoughts, or URLs for good reels?

I faced exactly the same problem. you realistically need 30 seconds per piece to show off any sound, meaning you are very limited how many pieces you can put up. I'm now putting up clips individually on my site and if the piece is less than 1 minute put the whole thing up.
If the director is happy for me too and I like the whole piece, I will put up the entire thing (obviously applies to short films only) or link my page to Vimeo where the director has already uploaded it.

Newest work then features on a slider on my homepage.
