Actor Reel – Shoot Day with Romina

Afternoon Session with Romina

You probably make a judgement call on an actor in an actor reel within the first fifteen seconds. Here’s an actor reel you can’t help but love!

This afternoon we shot 2 scenes for Romina’s actor demo reel. Romina had a consultation with us on 6/18, and was looking to add some footage to an existing reel.

Scene #1: Romantic Lead – Romantic Comedy

Romina played a Romantic Lead in a Romantic Comedy genre. The material was written based on Romina premise:

Premise: Romantic lead tells friend of her date that she really IS into the date, in spite of how much hotter she is than him..

Scene Script

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

MIA

I know it’s hard to believe that a girl like me could be interested in a guy like your friend Mikaela, but I am. He’s not the hottest guy in the room, but he’s also not the kind of guy who would question why the hot girl likes his best friend. (beat) I think you just got your answer.

Scene #2: Detective – Police Procedural

Demo Reel Scene: Detective - Police ProceduralDemo Reel Scene: Detective - Police Procedural

Next, Romina played a Detective in a Police Procedural genre. The material was written based on Romina premise:

Premise: Sexy, strong, confident exotic undercover agent confronts fellow agent who betrayed her..

Scene Script

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

EVE

(pointing gun) Why don’t I believe you, Nikolai? Perhaps it’s because you accused me of being a double agent, and that nearly cost me my team, and my life. You’re the only one who can clear my name, and that’s exactly what you’re going to do. (beat) Any questions?

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