I highly recommend them to anybody needing a new reel, or even if your re-branding yourself."
"Best experiences I have had in LA!…"
"Create Your Reel is one of the best experiences I have had since moving to LA 3 months ago. This company is the perfect combination of professionalism,creativity, and fun. I always felt like I was very informed about each step of the process from the very beginning. If I could give Create Your Reel 10 stars I would. They are amazing. Any serious actor who wants to have the combination of your creativity and the creativity of professionals in the industry needs to use create your reel. They will make you feel at home and develop a sincere connection with you to make you the best that you can be for your reel."
"I had a great experience working with the CYR…"
"I had a great experience working with the CYR team."
The team was professional and helpful from beginning to end and I was really happy with the result. They take their time with you until they know they have at least a few great takes and you receive great directions. They are very talented and hard working and you learn a lot of useful things from them. I recommend them to all my actor friends."
"Love you guys forever!!!…"
"Everybody on set has one goal: To make the best scenes for you possible! The creator Kevin, Retta, the director, everybody was beyond brilliant, and their work speaks for itself; the reel they created was a huge reason for me booking FOX's Arrested Development last month. Ive been on a few high caliber productions and I will never forget the direction I received on this set. See you all soon and Love you guys forever!!!"
"I now have theatrical representation!!…"
"These guys are so great! Everyone at CYR was really nice, very professional, easy to work with, and best of all, seriously great at what they do! I shared my new reel with an agent, and I now have theatrical representation!!"
"These guys are awesome!…"
"These guys are awesome! They are so efficient and so much fun to work with. I got the finished product back 5 business days later (as promised), and I am so happy with the reel. I highly recommend them to any actor wanting to film some reel material."
"Flew from Atlanta and it was well worth it…"
"Absolutely the best. I flew in from Atlanta just to shoot with these guys and I it was well worth it. Professional and so helpful in getting me to put in my best performance. Never rushing and willing to shoot until we got it right. I quickly got a an agent after I was able to add reel to my submissions. Auditions are stating to come in. I can't say thank you enough. If you can, shoot with these guys."
"Can't wait to start using my new reel …"
"Definitely a place I would come back to again for demo reels in the future. The whole process was neat, clean, professional, and went by very fast. The scripts they write have everything you need for the character in a concise few lines, the directors give great feedback while you're doing the takes, and everyone there is so personable and friendly when you meet them. All of them definitely know their craft–I did a daunting 4 scenes which I thought would be an arduous task, but they knew exactly what to do, how to do it, and it made me feel comfortable and at home. The time flew by. They also get a lot of your input on the final product, which is fantastic. You really feel in control of your marketing tool. I can't wait to start using my new reel and getting results!"
"Absolutely BRILLIANT footage …"
"I just shot with Kevin and Co. last weekend, and in less than 7 days I have a.) absolutely BRILLIANT footage and b.) every imaginable file type an actor would need [Actor's Access, LA Casting, Youtube, DVD, etc.]! These folks really are the best in the business and I'll be going back again for sure."
"The whole process was easy and professional…."
"I have a great reel now, thanks to Kevin and everyone else at Create Your Reel! It was a really fun day of shooting, and the whole process was easy and professional. I couldn't be happier!"

"Create Your Reel absolutely gets a 5 star review from me. I've done three scenes with them and plan on adding a fourth. Having scenes like these of such high quality has opened up another world to me. I now have the best agent I've ever had and I'm getting more opportunities. As an actor you must have something to show for yourself and I have been nothing but satisfied with they way Create Your Reel does business and the service they provide.

"I've had nothing but compliments…"
"Wow! what a great product these guys offer! So professional and genuinely really nice people. Had so much fun shooting my scenes with them and SO HAPPY with with my reel. I've had nothing but compliments and recommend their service to everyone! Keep up the great work "CREATE YOUR REEL"
"Cinematic look of major film…"
"Create Your Reel makes quality reels. They produce a cinematic look of major film, and prime time television. Their crew is skilled and their lighting is amazing. The director also worked with me to give the ultimate performance in each scene.
The team at Create Your Reel writes, edits, provides set design, location, an over-the-shoulder-actor, they even have a package which allows them to compress, and convert video specifically for LACasting, Actors Access, and Youtube which is compatible with other uploaders for online viewing.
When it comes to a top rate product, and a high quality reel to market yourself to the industry, definitely check out Create Your Reel!"
"True pros; I am 100% happy!…"
"I had my reel done by Create Your Reel on June 18th, 2011. Not only was I impressed by the way Kevin King handled my appointment, but also by the fantastic direction given by Director Steve Hosford. These two guys are true pros and they will help you get the best reels possible! From the very first phone call consultation, to the actual day of the shoot, Create Your Reel NEVER let me down! I am 100% happy!"
"Quality footage, extremely professional…"
"These guys were so amazing to work/shoot with! not only did i get quality footage, they were extremely professional and just good people! thanks again guys! also, cant thank kevin enough for dealing with my indecisiveness! lol..your the best kev! thanks again!!! so happy with them all around!"
"The reel helped get me a new agent!…"
"This company is wonderful! From start to finish they are attentive, friendly, patient, professional, fun and just plain awesome. I had so many questions and worries and they took the time to explain anything I needed and make me feel confident and at ease. The quality of everything is top notch– from the writing to the finished product. The actual filming was truly fun! The people are all really cool. The reel helped get me a new agent! Enough said."
"Beautiful, professional and high quality…"
"Create Your Reel offers an amazing product. I was skeptical at first because we all have heard horror stories of wasted money in this business. But CYR has given me a beautiful demo reel that is both professional looking and high quality. And they are very nice people to boot! I fully intend on using them again."
"Immediately started getting more call backs!…"
"The crew at CYR were very helpful and professional, they filmed both my son and daughters reels. It was refreshing to see that they really cared about the end product and that we weren't just a number to them, they took the time to understand my kids strengths and weaknesses. The end result was great, the kids immediately started getting more auditions and call backs."
"I got a feature film audition…."
"I had a great time filming with CYR. I was really happy with what they did. In fact, right after it was posted on Actors Access, I got a feature film audition. The casting director called me in because of my CYR reel."
"One of the most positive experiences …"
"This was by far one of the most positive experiences I have had in the industry. These guys are so professional and they don't stop until you get exactly what you need. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. It is so vital for actors to have a great reel these days and they provide that 100%. I can not say enough about them!"
"Extremely professional operation…"
"The bottom line is that my agents needed me to give them a reel. I made this one, and they flipped out. I found the staff to be professional and easy to work with — I needed to have a lot of leeway with making my own scenes, and they were flexible, patient and accommodating. The end result is that I got the reel I wanted – the reel that is right for me as a performer. Far more efficient than building a reel out of less than ideal cuts from student film, etc.
Note that I paid to have an outside hair and makeup artist be on set. I would recommend that. I also had an outside director, in part to ensure my own control over the scenes. You might consider bringing your own director if you already know exactly what you want, but obviously it's not necessary…Steve does a great job with directing too. He did DP on my reel and the sets and shots were amazing.
Last note: the post prod on my reel is so great. And that's all included. You just have to wait a week after the shoot."
"I had the most amazing working experience!…"
"I don't know where to start. I had the most amazing working experience with everyone! They definitely proved to be AMAZING! I filmed 3 scenes and the director, Steve was great. He took his time and really made sure that I walked away with a great product. I was amazed at how each set was made, how perfect the lighting was and the overall quality of my reel. It was such a joy working with them and I would HIGHLY recommend them to EVERYONE!"
"Amazing reel … gotten me a lot of praise…"
"I love this company!! I have such an amazing reel that has gotten me a lot of praise. It is important for an actor to have good quality footage of you on tape. It is also important to have on tape what is what your market is. With create your reel I was in control of the finished product and with their expertise got amazing footage out of it. What they do with the lighting and the shots is impeccable. They are a great recourse for actors and anyone needing a reel should use them."
"I'd give more stars if I could…."
"I'd give more stars if I could. GREAT TEAM! Great writing, great directing, great editing. All you have to do is look at their samples to see that they are head and shoulders above the competition. It feels AMAZING to finally have reels (I shot drama and comedy) that I can feel really proud of. Can't recommend them enough! Do it. Do it now."
"My reel got me signed."
"Thanks again, my reel got me signed."
"Auditioning AGAIN for Army Wives."
"Auditioning AGAIN for Army Wives.
"I was just offered a movie role …"
"I used Create Your Reel for both my daughter's reel and just recently mine. Since getting her reel, my daughter has booked a series on ABC among other work. I was just offered a movie role and the director told me that my reel was one of the best he has ever seen. The quality of their lighting and set design is AMAZING!!!"

"I HIGHLY recommend CYR!…"
"I have been trying to get some of my work in film and television for years now. I finally gave up and decided to hire CYR to fill in the gaps where I couldn't obtain my footage. I was hesitant at first, but I am thoroughly impressed with their work and my reels. From start to finish, the entire team is professional, easy to work with, down to earth and very affordable for most struggling actors. I HIGHLY recommend CYR for anyone needing their reel finished and anyone who can't seem to get that footage they were promised. Industry feedback so far has been amazing. I am VERY happy and will use their services again!"

"Create Your Reel did a great job. They worked with me to come up with scenes that would show of my talents. All aspects of the videos are very professional: writing, lighting, sfx and direction. I recommend them to anyone who needs a great looking reel."
"I found a solution…."
"I recently moved out to Los Angeles from New York and didn't have a reel I was proud of, especially for a town like LA where you pretty much have to have video to get work. When I heard about Create YourReel from my agent and took a look at your website and prices, I knew I had found a solution. Their professionalism and friendliness convinced me to tell all my friends. I've been getting out consistently since I shot this reel. Thank you!"
"Been called twice to casting office…"
"I love Create Your Reel! I had some characters that I wanted to play, and specific TV shows that I wanted to target that my current reel didn't capture. So, I added these 3 scenes into my reel and I've been called in MULTIPLE TIMES to the office that cast the shows I was targeting. Coincidence? I don't think so!"

"Just the way you want to be seen…"
"The great thing about Create Your Reel isn't the superior quality of the production team, or the spot-on dialogue they create for you. It isn't their affordable prices, or even their professional, yet fun personalities. What is great about Create Your Reel is the fact that you can showcase yourself, JUST THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE SEEN. You create the characters, you create the situations, you create the marketing tool you want, you create your reel!"
"Expert direction brought out my skills…"
"Create Your Reel made the entire process painless. They shot my comedy reel in a matter of hours, gave me expert direction that brought out my marketable skills, and my edited reel was ready the very next day. The production quality is wonderful and the price is very reasonable. I liked my comedy reel so much that I shot my dramatic reel shortly afterward, and similarly had a great experience."
