Verve Studios



Demo Reels

Verve offers both Demo Reel EDITING and Demo Reel TAPING.


It is vital that professional actors have a demo reel with quality and current material to market themselves. But getting footage from past projects can be difficult. Whether you’re looking to update or start building a reel, Verve Studios can help!

TAPING SERVICES

We are now offering a service to tape both scenes and monologues to show off your acting skills. Our studio can put together realistic kitchen, bedroom, living room, school, and office sets tailored to your shoot. The service includes a fully dressed set, professional photography, lighting, sound, coverage of both actors and delivery of an edited scene. Bring in your scene or monologue with a scene partner and we can create an excellent addition to your reel. E-mail us for more information on developing your demo reel.

The scene package includes a fully dressed set, professional sound, lighting, and editing for a 3-hour session. This is a great opportunity to work with a fellow actor and both get quality footage for your reels. The material should be no more than 1.5 minutes long. Please treat this as a real job and show up fully prepared and memorized.

The monologue package includes professional sound, lighting, and editing for 1.5-hour session. You will need a partner for this option as well to make it look like a professional scene. The material should be no more than 1.5 minutes long. Please treat this as a real job and show up fully prepared and memorized.

What you will need:
1.  A scene partner
2. Fully prepared and memorized material that is not copyright prohibited.

Please e-mail Verve Studios to discuss available studio time prior to registering. REGISTER

EDITING SERVICES
We are now offering our editing services to help you put together demo reels to show off your acting skills. Bring us your pre-existing footage that you’ve collected from films, television, and commercial projects and we will create professional demo reels that will make you a stand out in today’s competitive industry. While having a reel that features a combination of footage is acceptable, it is best to have focused reels such as dramatic, comedic, commercial, or hosting. Email us for more information on how we can help develop your demo reel.

What you will need:

  1. Digital copies of the material you wish to use. We will need the actual digital file by way of external hard drive, Dropbox, Hightail, or Google Drive. Unfortunately, we cannot accept it via a link from a streaming site to download and we are unable to work with hard media (DVDs, tapes, etc.) Files must be digitized before submission. (If you don’t have this, contact the filmmaker to get it.)
  2. The time codes or scene selections and your preference for the order of clips (In and Out points).
  3. Please limit your choices to no more than FIVE (5) clips per reel with a maximum length of two minutes. The more concise, the better it is for the viewers.
  4. The details for your title card graphics (both your agent’s and your contact information, film titles and directors, etc.)
