Demo scene for actors - individual
DESCRIPTION: your demo reel is a critically important tool for your professional career. WITH REELS, casting directors and agents will get to see your versatility AND YOUR ACTING ABILITIES. regardless of your level of experience, having an up-to-date demo reel that highlights your portrayals in comedic and dramatic roles will make you stand out from the rest.
Chicago demo reel productions offers you TWO DIFFERENT SCENES THAT CAN SHOWCASE BOTH YOUR COMEDIC AND DRAMATIC ACTING SKILLS.
DEmo reel sessions
If you are in need of a specific type of demo, where you have a tight deadline, or a desire portray one type of character, an individual session is best.
This will include a one-on-one initial meeting with our director to explore what kind of characters you’d like to portray. If you have a desire to shoot two comedic scenes, two dramatic scenes, or one of both, you can do so in this individual session.
Depending on what type of scenes you will shoot, we will provide you with a supporting actor that can be a part of the scenes you make. Similarly, if you want to have a monologue that really lets you take control of a scene and go all out with your performance, we can accommodate a stand-in or you could bring a peer that you feel comfortable delivering lines with.
If you are looking for a more affordable option, we offer demo reel intensives, where we bring on a group of actors that are looking to created demo reels and we break the team off in pairs. Here you will participate in 2 different scenes and you will have the advantage of working with a fellow peer that is also striving to create a great performance.
Our intensives are held over a weekend, where you meet your fellow actors, rehearse, and shoot the performance. you can also have a chance to be a supporting actor for other people’s scenes.

Scripts that best match what your are aiming to showcase
a Set where you will perform your scenes
Professional Direction / editing
One digital copy of your 2 scenes
