An acting demo reel is an increasingly valuable tool in landing the right agent, or getting through the casting director’s door. At Callback Studios we work with actors at all levels of experience to cut a reel that shows off your range and marketability.
We can approach your reel a couple of different ways: shooting original showreel content for you in our self tape studio, or editing film and tv footage you already have into a tight actor demo reel.
Either way you will leave with a final edit that you love, and a demo to be proud of. One that pushes you to the next step of your career.
This is great for new actors looking to have a reel to approach an agent, or to help boost their castiblity.
– Handpicked scenes, (generally 3). With help from our coach, scenes are chosen from our large selection at least a week pior to taping day.
– 1 1/2hr Coaching/Taping.
– Editing. Can also include previous footage.
– Consultation on best footage and cut points.
– Electronic Slate.
– Intro music if desired.
The actor must provide digital copies of the footage they want used, with time codes and notes.

We can have a look, but the first step should be to reach out to your agent or the engaging production company.
Yes. The price would be the Self Tape Style, but it would be a mix of the two demo styles. Many actors choose this when they have a little bit of footage but not enough to show their full range.
Yes, we can have you come in and shoot scenes you’ve prepared, like an audition tape. This would be exactly like our self tape audition setup, where the focus is entirely on your acting. You would be reading with our reader, lit, and have the option for multiple takes. Coaching optional. We can create a reel just from these contrasting tapes, or edit the footage into your existing reel.
You sure can. Myrthin will advise you on what scenes to pair with it to give your reel depth and range. We suggest putting at least one published scene in your demo.
