acting clips. Yet many actors overlook its importance, and either
put minimal effort into it, or leave it off their demo
altogether. An effective slate video is one of the best tools you

judging the quality of your video, sound and lighting. With our
audition taping service, you get a high-quality, professional video

The actor's demo reel is the best way to showcase your best work for
casting directors and agents. Not only is it important to have a
reel in the first place, but also to keep it up to date with your
latest projects. A standard reel includes a slate video, three
short scenes that show your range, and a brief montage of 5-6 clips
from a variety of projects.
We'll edit footage of your choice into an impressive, polished reel
that you can be proud to show to any casting professional.
Don't have enough footage to fill out an entire reel? We can help
you choose additional scenes, then shoot and edit high-calibur footage,
specifically to be used for your reel.
