ABOUT THIS SERVICE
Practiced talent and a good headshot alone do not guarantee the big break one might deserve. To compete in today's entertainment industry, actors must do everything they can to display to casting agents, producers, and directors what makes them unique and vital. Demonstrating these essential qualities starts with having a high-quality demo reel. Reels are now central to the casting process and are likely to grow even more critical. However, many new and experienced actors lack the media necessary to be genuine contenders in the industry. So, how do actors get usable footage, without first being booked?
At Everything Cinema, we understand this challenge. That's why we have created an effective service solution. Our Shoot a Clips Reel provides actors with fully customized, fully produced short scenes for their acting portfolios. Each clip runs 30-60 seconds, perfect for casting and agency sites, as well as audition submissions. These mini-scenes start with a free consultation. We'll use the information gathered during this consult as the basis for our custom screenwriting. Every script is tailored to our clients' specific acting character-types and strengths.
Custom clips are shot on location with a professional crew and industry-approved equipment. Our sets are fun, creative environments designed to allow actors to perform their best work. We never rush our shoots, choosing instead a pace every actor will find comfortable.
Like our shoots, we handle post-production with quality techniques and an expert approach. We create a polished final product, complete with video editing, coloring, and a custom sound design (effects and music). Clients receive HD 1080p digital files of each clip, delivered at a size and file-type that's easily uploaded to agency and casting sites.
Additional service options, including scene partner casting and on-set hair and makeup artist, can be purchased at an affordable rate. For more details, see our Rates, FAQ's & Policies section below.
Premium, compelling footage at an affordable rate. No hassles, no hidden fees.

However, for requests that result in major rewrites, an additional $50 fee will be added to the project invoice. In such a case, we will first notify the client before proceeding further.
