Actor Demo Reels: Andronica

Afternoon Session with Andronica

Casting watching literally hundreds of actor demo reels a day, but this is one demo reel we feel would hold their attention.

This afternoon we shot 4 scenes for Andronica’s actor demo reel. Andronica had a consultation with us on 6/5, and was looking to produce some footage that looked very professional.

Scene #1: Lawyer – Legal Drama

Andronica played a Lawyer in a Legal Drama genre. The material was written based on Andronica premise:

Premise: Angry DA defends herself against a detective’s accusation that she’s letting a serial killler go free by not going to trial, but she has no choice as the trial was tainted..

Scene Script

Retta from our writing staff took the premise and wrote the following script:

ANGELA

The only reason this guy is getting away with murder is because of you and your brilliant team. Nobody wore gloves when collecting the evidence and more than half of the fingerprints at the scene came from your guys. How did you even pass your detective exam?

Scene #2: Wife – Dramatic Serial

Next, Andronica played a Wife in a Dramatic Serial genre. The material was written based on Andronica premise:

Premise: Desperate, loving wife begs husband not to go through with his plans to rob a bank with friends to save their family from financial distress.

Scene Script

Retta from our writing staff took the premise and wrote the following script:

BETH

Don’t do this, Bobby. We’ll figure out a different way. You and your buddies can’t just walk into a bank and expect them to give you the money... and what happens with the kids and me if something goes wrong and you get arrested...or worse?

Scene #3: Mother – Sitcom

Premise: Sleep deprived mother desperately bribing baby if it will stop crying..

Scene Script

Retta from our writing staff took the premise and wrote the following script:

RUBY

If you stop crying in the next 30 seconds, I will go to Tiffany’s in the morning and buy a diamond studded, platinum teething ring that will be so beautiful, you will be the envy of every baby you meet.

Scene #4: Vampire Queen – Fantasy Drama

Andronica played a Vampire Queen in a Fantasy Drama genre. The material was written based on Andronica premise:

Premise: Vampire Queen must convince rampaging enemy equal that they must agree to preserve human babies, rather than eat them, to ensure their food supply (may have humorous elements).

Scene Script

Retta from our writing staff took the premise and wrote the following script:

FATIMA

Surely your followers cannot all be so greedy and lazy. Some must be capable of catching something other than the small vulnerable humans! ...The elders are dying off, Selena. If you eat the babies, they can’t

grow to make more babies. Then we’ll have a real food shortage, won’t we?

Actor demo reel footage was shot at Create Your Reel Studios in North Hollywood, California.
