Actor Demo Reels: Natalia

Afternoon Session with Natalia

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 2 scenes for Natalia’s actor demo reel. Natalia had a consultation with us on 5/20, and was looking to add some footage to an existing reel.

Scene #1: Best Friend – Sitcom

Natalia played a Best Friend in a Sitcom genre. The material was written based on Natalia premise:

Premise: Friend discovers that her best friend’s boyfriend is not who he says he is and decides to confront him..

Scene Script

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

JEWEL

Derek, I saw you at the Tasty Freeze. You are not a pilot, you’re an ice cream maker! I feel like a dummy for believing you, and I’m definitely telling Hanna. She’s so going to break up with you. (beat) But first things first: do you get discounts on ice cream?

Scene #2: Sociopath – Police Procedural

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

Premise: A suspected sociopath is interrogated for a murder by the police..

Scene Script

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

NATASHA

If I am remorseful of anything, it’s that she had to go through so much pain without understanding my master plan. Her life was a tiny sacrifice for something much grander than mortality. I never wanted to harm her, Detective. I only wanted to kill her.
