Demo Reel Class at Graham Shiels Studios

Demo Reel Class

Do you have a demo reel? Does it represent the full potential of your talent? First impressions are everything. It's imperative your Demo Reel can be viewed by a Casting Director, Agent, or Manager in 60 seconds and they can say "I need to work with this actor!"

What is the Demo Reel Class?
  • Let us help you create a brand new demo reel or update and add variety to an existing reel in our Demo Reel Class. This is far more important than any headshot! Your reel will allow industry professionals to quickly see your "essence" on camera.

  • In this 4 week class, you'll have the opportunity to work ON-SET and acquire usable footage to help develop and showcase your talent. 

  • This class is also perfect for those actors who have already been compiling material for a Film/TV demo, but are missing certain types of roles.

  • Similar services in Los Angeles will run you $700 to $1,800 and up--and that's without the coaching and direction!
