More Info


We’re proud to have helped produce demo reels for over 7000 actors!

Create Your Reel was conceived with an agent’s request to get footage for all of her clients. Instead of back and forth dialogue, she believed that casting was only interested in a one-minute reel that focused on one thing: the client.

From that request, Create Your Reel was born. CYR has pioneered the now popular format they coined the “Minilogue” – 20 to 30 seconds of footage that focuses on one person without turnarounds or establishing shots.

Create Your Reel is a full time company with a professional staff who work in many aspects of the industry.
