Actor Agent Aircheck All

Roger Cross

I’ve been using Doug to do my demo-reels since we had to bring tapes in, 3/4 tapes even, not to date myself. He’s a pro, has a great eye, and will give you as much or as little help as you need. Plus he has excellent rates and will never gouge you. I highly recommend using Astral to get a great demo-reel!

Doug Fee is a hard working, talented and reliable guy. He's been my go-to for all of my editing needs for the past 2 decades! He’s always there for his clients, working around the clock with crazy last minute film industry deadlines. I’ve always been happy to have Doug in my corner, and recommend his services to anyone who needs the perfect demo reel to show off their talents. Plus, he’s a wonderful human being and great to work with!

Cameron Bancroft

Doug has been a colleague and friend for 20 years and we have collaborated and put together many Demo reels together. He is an extremely talented editor, has a great sense of how to make your reel pop and is very honest and dependable. Whether I’m in Vancouver or Los Angeles, he can make changes or construct something specific for each demo request. I have definitely seen how he has evolved with technology ( No more VHS ) and casting industry standards and have many times been hired and complimented on the reel he has assembled for me. Many actors and agents can thank Doug and Astral Video for helping them land the offer!

Jim Flynn

A whole bunch of my clients have reels expertly made and edited by Doug Fee at Astral Digital Video, their demos are ALL brilliant. The actor’s reel is the new picture & resume, practically required by Casting Directors and Producers. Some clients have even booked jobs -- direct offers -- based on their demo reel alone, with no audition! I highly recommend Doug. He’s a pro I’ve come to rely on.

He's the best of the best, and I know I can count on his surgeon's precision and creative ideas, not to mention his great sense of humour :) Even with somewhat difficult to edit clips, he always finds a solution and makes it work even better than I imagined.

Nathan Klau

I can’t say enough about how great it was working with Doug. I gave him a general sense of what I was looking for in terms of the “arc” of my scenes and, within a week, I had a polished reel that I could proudly submit to casting directors. Doug was wonderfully responsive with any feedback/changes I requested and I still don’t know how he magically found all my clips so easily. Friendly, prompt, and professional!

I am grateful for Astral Digital Video and the amazing work Doug does for my girls (Grace & Isla Sunar). Both their demo reels and their self tapes. I am always so relieved when I’ve finished filming taped auditions because I know once he has the clips, they are in great hands. He is reliable, efficient and has such a professional quality product, I believe it adds even more credibility to their auditions. He has definitely become an integral part of their team.

Doug from Astral Video is wonderful. He’s resourceful, creative, and quick. He was able to get demos for my two boys (Chase & Dean Petriw) done promptly with great editing.

Thank you Doug for all the guidance you provided us in the creation of our first Demo Reel. You easily guided us through the process and very efficiently presented us with a quality product in a very short period of time. I’m happy to say that it is a work in progress due to the new material we are accumulating from all of the work we have booked since.
