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.


Tell us what you need! From custom scenes and reels to award-winning short films and pilots, we collaborate with you to create professional original custom content. Let us know the types of roles and genres you’d like to be cast in and together we will design the best demo to showcase your talent. This is your chance to cast yourself in your dream roles!


Before your shoot date rehearse with your scene partner(s) so you can show up on-set prepared and confident! Want professional coaching so you look your best? We can do that too!


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. Once you’re satisfied that you have the footage you need, we will move on to the next scene or it’s a wrap for the day!


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. We deliver a superior quality demo that you can send to Agents/Managers and upload to Actors Access, LA Casting, IMDb, YouTube, your website, etc.
