Demo Reel Production Process

The Demo Reel Production 5 Step Process

phoneWe start with a free phone consultation, where you will speak directly with Retta Putignano, Partner of Create Your Reel. Retta will walk you through the entire process from start to finish and answer any questions you may have. Through our appointment system, you’ll be able to schedule an exact time that works for you. Consultations are generally 20 minutes in length.

After your consultation, all of the information discussed will be emailed to you in the form of an FAQ and Terms & Conditions. You’ll also receive a link to a $200 deposit. Once you’re ready to move forward, you’ll make your deposit to receive a Welcome Packet.

Writing Our writing staff will deliver original Minilogue™ scripts based on your original scene premise ideas. With our online Premise Builder, you’ll let us know the Genre, Role, Premise and even similar shows you are targeting.

Our writing staff will then write two original script options. You choose your favorites, and even let us know how we can tweak to make you 100% satisfied.

ProductionOur DP will work with you to design framing, lighting and a background that’s perfect for your scene. Our director will work the scene with you until we have many takes to select from. The team will review the best takes and help you choose the winners.

EditingOur editor will then color correct, sound engineer, and add a musical score, and send you the first cut within five business days. You’ll be able to review online and request any changes until you’re 100% happy.

Writing Once approved, you’ll receive your finalized versions within 24 hours. You’ll get an HD version that has been optimized for the Web, two versions for specific casting sites (Actors Access & LA Casting) and a DVD will be mailed to you within a week.
