We write, film and/ or produce professional quality demo reel and scenes for you to show the world!

OUR PHILOSOPHY
 

Through the combination good writing, professional production, comprehensive instruction and experienced direction, we make amazing scenes to blow your audience away and showcase your ability. We offer a selection of different scenes and packages, rehearsal including, to suit whatever acting style, role or challenge! 

WHAT WE OFFER

Three different packages for producing your demo reel scenes. Packages include up to to three scenes each with the director of your choice, and may also include: an about me video, a counseling interview, scene selection, scene writing, scene partners, rehearsal, shoot with a professional crew, edit, sound and color grading.

Reels will be made available in multiple qualities (HQ, Web, etc). Alternatively we offer the content packages without editing at discount.

 
 
OUR WORKFLOW

After an initial meeting, in which we discuss the style, content and goals for the scene(s), you will receive a selection of the scenes to choose from.  Once the scene is selected and confirmed, intensive rehearsals begin in which the camera is present in order to ensure that the performance tailored properly to the right shots and angles. Thus optimizing the performance for the reel.

 
EQUIPMENT

To ensure quality and efficiency, we shoot with two cameras: Sony FS7 equipped with prime lenses, in addition to our professional lighting arrays!

This allows us to preserve performance as well as double the total amount of shots for editing without sacrificing multiple days for each scene.

If requested we have many additional pieces of equipment to raise the production value of the reel including Dollies, Sliders and Steady cam!
