As with headshots, far too often, actors in a rush to get things going, will hastily jump into action, proclaiming, “I need a reel!” They then ask around for a ‘demo shooter,’ compare some prices and schedule a shoot. The date arrives and they head into the shoot with some sort of vague idea of what they want (or should have) – or, they have no idea at all, expecting the shooter to make it all happen for them.
It’s great to be proactive about your career, however, being unprepared for shoots are one of the biggest mistakes that actors make. They go into their shoot hastily and wind up with anything but the best reel possible. NOT SMART! It’s foolish, time-consuming and expensive.
A good demo reel should last years! A bad demo can be the end of the road!
DON’T MISS A SINGLE OPPORTUNITY! YOUR DEMO REEL IS A SIGNIFICANTLY IMPORTANT PRECISION TRADE TOOL. GO INTO YOUR DEMO SHOOT PREPARED AND READY TO GET THE BEST SCENE’S POSSIBLE!
Think about it. A photoshoot needs direction! So, you say, “That’s the videographers job, isn’t it?” Yes and not really! The videographers can and will only do so much. They aren’t responsible for your performance… the majority of the success of the shoot is ultimately on the shoulders of the actor… YOU!
HOW IT ALL WORKS:
As soon as you’re ready, schedule your demo reel coaching session, we’ll get together and lay out a plan specifically for you. Then, the magic begins! As soon as you’ve scheduled your session, begin working on the demo reel worksheet below.
Private coaching is ridiculously effective. Actors who have demo reel coaching before they shoot, not only have significantly better results than those who don’t… they learn how to work the camera so much better. IT’S PROVEN!
