“What makes a Casting Director or Agent watch your demo reel?”

Have you ever wondered?…

Of course!  What professional actor hasn't?

In fact, there are several key questions you absolutely SHOULD be asking when it comes to making a compelling demo reel that casting directors, agents, managers, producers or directors will watch.

  5. How should I organize my clips on my demo reel?

Recently I shot a series of quick video tips answering all of these questions and I've gathered them all together to make it easy for you to get all your answers in one handy-dandy demo reel vlog.  BOOM!

    Super tips, as always! I was afraid you were going to say something that would make me think my demo reel was a disaster, but you put my mind at ease. I “think” it’s actually ok. :)

  • Melissa O’Brien

    I’ve heard that some agents now prefer to see just a single scene, not a demo reel. What do you think about that?

  • John Culver

    Length and order of scenes helped to reinforce that what I’ve done is on track. Thanks Amy!
