An acting demo reel is a short video compilation of your best professional work to showcase your range of acting ability. It’s used by agents to promote you to Casting Directors and Producers to demonstrate the roles you are suitable for. Also known as a show reel, it can be adapted for Commercials with TV ads, Dance with on-screen and performance clips, or Hosting with emcee and interview clips.
The scenes you choose to showcase should represent how you look today and focus on you so casting knows who to watch. Scenes shared with notable actors or from popular productions add validity and weight to your work.
Always have a current demo reel ready because casting directors periodically ask to see your reel before deciding on a Callback or Director session. Show reels can be uploaded to Actors Access, Casting Workbook, Casting Network, IMDB or numerous other casting sites where agencies seek out new talent.
You provide a list of your projects with scene descriptions and approximate timecodes for your best scenes. Choose a mix of genres and character roles based on your type and castability. It's a good idea to involve your agent in the selection process.
We source your scenes in High Definition quality from available digital libraries. We do not download from file sharing sites, instead choosing to purchase shows or use our extensive library of recorded TV episodes, movies of the week (MOW), and feature films.
Each clip is edited for brevity, impact and focus on you. The first preview is strategically assembled, piecing the puzzle together, leading with the strongest, mixing in character roles and genres while playing to your strengths and marketability.
The final version is the result of a collaborative effort with you and your agent. Your demo reel is ready to upload to casting sites such as Actors Access, iMDb, or Casting Workbook and promoted on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
