When I revamped my resume last year I searched the net for other A/V related resumes and looked for condensed phrases and keywords that anyone hiring in the industry would know. While doing that, I got to see a lot of different layouts for resumes. Just remember, a resume doesn't get you the job, a resume gets the interview, and that's where you can bring your iPad with pics and videos of shows. I know it's not possible in all environments, but if there's a client that you really want to work for, but they want to know that you know your stuff, offer to work a show for free and then they can make their decision. But when it comes to a resume, keep it short but keep it informative.
... While it's great to show having a well rounded background, somebody that's trying to show they have directly relevant experience and qualifications should be able to present a more focused resume. In general, I like to see something that is not just "here is who I am" but more "here is how I can help you".
