What is an Acting Demo Reel?
A demo reel is an essential marketing tool for any actor looking to book work! Casting directors, producers and directors will want to see you in action before they can decide if you’re right for a job, or even if you should audition! Actors reels can help you get into the audition room: it’s a collection of clips of your acting work from different projects, edited together into one video to show off your skills and on-camera presence.
Not sure how to make your own reel? No worries! We understand demo reel production can get really complicated, really fast. With our NYC Acting Reels program, you can get a demo reel made in NYC! We’ll handle all the details, so all you need to focus on is delivering your best performance!
What will you get
Our demo reels for actors will consist of one fully produced 60-90 second scene that will be specifically written for you, shot on a 4K resolution camera! We will also handle location, editing, color correction, sound design, title card, and a scene partner!
We're collaborating with an award-winning production company and directing team that has made and released feature films, documentaries, short films, and music videos.
The Process of Creating a Demo Reel
When it comes to our demo reel production, we do the work so you don’t have to. Here’s what the typical process of creating an acting reel at our studio will look like for you:
- Sign up on our website - Congrats! You’re on your way to having a professional acting reel!
- Questionnaire - once you sign up, we will send you a questionnaire where you will answer questions like what kind of characters you’d like to play, what genre you want the scene to be, and more. This is all to ensure that we create the best demo reel scene for YOU!
- Prep class with a professional acting coach - once we’ve written your scene, you and your scene partner will get to work on it, over the course of 2 classes, with a professional acting coach!
- Shoot day - All you have to do is have fun on set, we’ll handle the lighting, shooting, and everything else.
- Receive your reel and IMDB credit!
What about Voice-Over Reels?
They’re just as important to a VO actor as an acting reel is to an on-camera actor, and you can get a voice-over reel in NYC with our studio too! Check out our VO reels program here.
