Our Process

We pride ourselves on quality — your reel should look like you were cast in a network show, landed a blockbuster, or starred in an indie.


This is your chance to cast yourself in your dream roles! We start with an in-person consultation where we discuss your career goals and the types of roles you’d like to be cast in, then begin the process of designing the best demo reel scenes to showcase your talent.


Quality writing is a critical first step in the creation of your demo scenes. When you book with us we can adapt existing scenes of your choosing or our team of professional writers will craft a WGA quality scene with good dialogue that will showcase your character.


We have many actors who would be happy to be your scene partner, or you are welcome to cast your own. (You can even split the cost with a fellow actor buddy). Before your shoot you decide on hair & makeup, options for wardrobe, and locations.


Arrive on set ready to shine! We’ll take care of everything on your shoot day so you can deliver your best performance. In a relaxed and fun environment, we will spend the time it takes to get the footage you need. No rushing you out the door. Throughout the shoot you can review playbacks, make adjustments, and receive on-set direction from an award-winning director.


Our award-winning editor will cut your footage to showcase your best performance, with professional color grading, sound design, and 4K digital cinema downscale to HD.

so thank you for all your expertise!”

I had an absolute blast working with PerfectReel! Ken was extremely professional, which made the shoot move very smoothly. He gave great direction for me to work off of and gave me a different perspective of my character that I didn’t even think of and I love how it turned out. I would highly recommend PerfectReel!
