Video demo reel suggestions

A video demo reel is an effective tool to showcase your personality, acting scenes or special skills. We can gather a lot about you by hearing your voice and seeing you speaking or moving on camera. You will want to choose content that engages people but keep it short and to the point.

Experienced actor demo

Do you have footage of acting in principal roles? These should be the best of the best and do not include background extra roles.

  1. Show two to five scenes of various lengths and range in acting. One great scene could be enough if it's good enough.
  2. Keep it one to three minutes in length for an entire reel.
  3. Make sure you are prominently featured in the scenes and they are of good quality.

New actor demo

Don't stress if you are new to the industry. You can still have a demo.

  1. Create a simple personality slate where you introduce yourself on camera and tell us about your hobbies and passions. It is best not to talk about how much you want to be an actor and do not beg for jobs. Keep it under one minute in length.
  2. Better yet, find two or three scenes that you feel you can perform well and have someone video you performing them. Edit the best footage together and keep it under three minutes in length.

Special skills demo

Are you an expert dancer, singer, musician, horseback rider, martial artist, etc?

  1. Create some short scenes of you performing your special skill(s).
  2. Keep it less than three minutes in length.
  3. Only showcase skills you are an expert at.
