DEMO REELS

Establish Yourself!

Acting Demo Reels are the most successful way to establish yourself as a professional actor. Demo Reels are perfect for actors who have no footage and who need everything done for them from start to finish. Having a professionally shot demo reel will get more casting directors to notice you, and increase your chances of booking a job. You can upload your reel to any acting site for casting directors and talent agents to easily access.

You can choose 1,2, or 3 comedic or dramatic scenes. Each scene is roughly 1 min and you can choose whatever combination of dramatic and comedic that you’d like. All of your scenes will be custom-written. We will cast the actors, if you choose that option, shoot and edit your footage, and even convert your footage to whatever format you need for easy upload onto casting websites. 

We write and create scenes personalized for you and your strengths. We know your reel represents you as an actor more than anything else and is a chance to give casting directors a glimpse of your acting ability before hiring you. We film the scene as if it were taken from a larger piece (Short Film, Feature, Web-Series) and deliver high quality reel footage that is ready to share with prospective casting directors, managers, and agents.

 

Demo reels are typically filmed with two actors to give make the scene more engaging and give the scene more life. We are happy to assist in finding an acting partner or you can do a one-person scene if you choose to do so.


You will be coached during your demo reel to ensure your performance is on-point the whole time. The edited footage will be delivered to you 1-2 weeks later.

The best way to save money is to partner with another actor who also needs to film a scene for their reel.

Every Reel Appointment at NLAS Includes: 

A consultation about the reel
Original dramatic or comedy script(s) written for the actor
Coaching and Filming
Editing of the Final Project

THE DEMO REEL PROCESS

STEP 1

To start off, we'll discuss your brand and any scene ideas you currently have. If you're looking for an agent or manager, we'll also talk about what kind of footage will improve your chances of getting signed.

STEP 4

​The shoot day has arrived! If you have purchased the hair and/or makeup add-on package, you will start your day with one of our professional and awesome makeup artists and/or hair stylists. Next, you will head to the shoot location. Rehearsals will take place as camera and sound equipment are being set up. ​There will be plenty of time for us to help you rehearse and do a few takes.

STEP 2

​After we’ve confirmed the demo reel scene option you want to move forward with and some basic scene ideas (plus any add-on options you’re wanting),You will book your demo reel appointment by clicking BOOK NOW. You will pay a 50% retainer payment. This retainer payment is put towards the shoot total and is not an additional fee. You will pay the remaining payment on the day of the shoot. 

STEP 5

You've nailed your scenes! Now it's time for us to put the final touches on your scenes with editing, color grading, sound design, and/or music. Editing for 1 Scene will be finished and delivered within a week. Editing for 2-3 scenes will be finished and delivered within two weeks. 

STEP 3

Once payment has been placed, you'll be introduced to one of our expert writers who will go over the ideas for your scene(s). The writer will begin workin on your scenes and deliver the script(s) to you within 5 days. We will then confirm shoot dates with you, find actors if necessary (you get final approval over them), secure locations, and ensure everything is in order for the big day!

STEP 6

Once your scenes are edited, we will send you the final scenes for your review. We are happy to re-edit a few times to make sure you are satisfied with your scenes. Once you're happy with the final cut, we will convert your reel into whatever specific formats you need and deliver the final file(s) to you.
