What are these?
An impressive Demo Reel has become a necessity in show business. Casting directors want to see what you've done, and you want them to be amazed by what they see. We can edit all of your old footage, whatever format it is in, help you select your best material, and prepare either a traditional or music video style (or mixed style) Demo Reel with which to prove your abilities.
Video Auditions are a great way to enter job markets you can't physically reach, and are now an industry norm. Casting Directors often put out sides out specifically for actors to be able to tape their own auditions and apply from abroad. Pablo Pictures has an HD Camera, professional microphones, and a studio waiting for you. If you don't have an acting coach or reader, we are able to provide experienced professionals in these roles.
What will it cost me? What do I get for the money?
Demo Reels are prepared at a cost of $25 an hour, with a traditional-style reel usually taking 3-5 hours to complete, and a music video or mixed-style reel usually taking 6-8 hours to complete. You can easily save yourself money by making sure all of your footage is in an accessible digital format so we won't need to spend time converting, contact us for a list of the best formats. You can also save even more time if you know which shots you want to prioritize, many clients come with a list of shots. If you prefer, we can also help you select and order your shots, we do a lot of casting, and can tell where your strong points are. Two DVDs with printed cases and labels are included in the price. One is TV format, the other will have a highest-possible resolution (depending on the formats of your reel) and Youtube-format digital files for computer use. You may make copies of these on your own, or we can make more for $5 each ($8 with case). Normal preparation time is one week, 48 hour delivery is available for an extra $50.
Video Auditions cost $50 an hour. We will only bill you the time span of the audition itself, editing and publishing are included in the price. For an additional $30 an hour, we can provide you with a professional coach/reader, who will help you maximize your acting with professional criticism and encouragement. The audition will consist of a slate and the sides provided by the casting agency. After the scene is shot, two DVDs with printed cases and labels will be provided. One will be your audition in TV format, the other will have an HD MXF file and Youtube-HD resolution H.264 mp4 digital file for computer use. You may make copies of these on your own, or we can make more for $5 each ($8 with case). Normal preparation time is one week, 48 hour delivery is available for an extra $50.
