Every actor needs a demo reel that will grab the viewer’s attention within seconds. A good reel should play like a story — an engaging journey through the actor’s best work. While it’s possible for an actor to string together some clips on home video editing software, a professional-looking reel requires precisely fine-tuned cuts, subtle transitions, well-planned pacing, audio mixing, good graphics, color correction and accurate encoding in multiple production formats . . . I could go on and on. So it’s best to place your reel in the hands of a professional editor.
But you also want to work with someone who understands acting. Not only have I been editing 9 years, but I’ve been involved in the performing arts for over a decade (theater, improv, directing, writing, working at Starbucks for a stint, and yes even marrying an actor). So you can rest assured that I appreciate the craft of acting. I can help pick out your strongest moments, cut on punchlines, and even re-cut a scene to eliminate another actor’s close-ups while maintaining plot and pace. Allow me to nerd out on the technical side as you focus on your craft!
