About Demo Reels

Demo reels are used as an introduction to a potential cast position with a director, casting director, or producer. Because you never get a second chance at a first impression, your demo reel needs to present you with your best performances in the shortest possible time. No gimmicks, no eye candy, no home movies, just solid performance with professional quality images and audio in about 2 minutes, sometimes in only a minute.

Demo reels are custom edited with care and creativity to present you at your best in your craft with my ability in editing, color correction, audio clean up, and proper graphics. Many examples and styles can be found below. Actors and references are more than happy to provide feedback on their experience and quality of their reels.

The average time to produce an initial demo reel is about 2.5 hours (plus or minus an hour depending upon if the source material has been prescreened by the actor). This is the time to upload, edit, make audio, exposure and color corrections, render, trancode, and burn. Reels are completed in one day and a link to the internet for others to review and download. The standard hourly rate for editing is 85/hr, however actors are given a discount to 35/hr.

To save time and money, it is best to review and mark down the locations of clips you would like to use in your reel. If you are unsure about what clips may work, I would be happy to review the material off the clock at a time scheduled a week before the edit session.

Edit sessions are made by appointment. Time slots are available to create or update your reel starting Monday through Friday. For Weekends, other times, or expedited reels, please call as soon as possible for special arrangements 817.217.8128.

Please contact me to talk about your demo and what materials you will need to produce a professional demo reel. reels@demosaccess.com
