Demo Reel Intensive
What is your Demo Reel doing for you?
Do you have a Demo Reel that represents you at your best? Let’s be honest, as actor’s we work in an industry where the people that need to know who we are, are often too busy for us to make a personal introduction. First impressions are everything, and it is important to have a Demo Reel that a CD, Agent or Manager can look at in 90 seconds and say, “I need to meet this actor!”
Your demo reel should showcase your work and presence on camera, but it is equally important that your Demo Reel looks professional and that it represents your best work to date. This part of putting together your Reel can be challenging if you do not have a lot of credits on your resume.
We want to help you produce the most professional Demo Reel possible, whether you are a beginner or seasoned professional!
Our 3-week intensive will give you 2 fully produced, “episodic quality” 30 second scenes to add to your Demo Reel. Over these 3-weeks we will help you choose and prepare the right material that will showcase your acting strengths and uniqueness. If you can’t find the right material, we will custom write a scene specifically for you! Once your material is chosen, you will spend the second class on-camera, preparing and refining your scenes. Your final class will be spent on location shooting your scenes in high-quality digital HD!
DEMO REEL SERVICE INCLUDES:
READER – We provide a reader for your scene. POST PRODUCTION – We will color correct & post produce your scene giving it that finished look. UPLOAD – We will send or upload your demo to wherever you need it EDITING – Our editor can add your new footage to your existing reel for an additional charge.
