Demo Reel Production Information
Ethos Media demo reel production services are great for upstart actors, musicians, dancers, athletes, and other types of performers. Our standard packages are affordable and produce all content in high definition. Our producers work under your specific direction in determining which content makes the final cut, in what order, and how to utilize other creative elements in your video.
Acting Reel Information
Acting reels typically consist of an opening graphic with a head shot and contact information followed by film content. Our recommended run-time is 45 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on the role you’re auditioning for or intended use of the video.
Filming and Editing Service: $500.00 – Our filming services consist of a 4-hour block to capture as much custom content as possible, all of which is made available for private review afterward. Actors can then make content selections and provide instructions for assembly of the final reel, which can also include any pre-existing content from other projects. Typical turnaround on an edited reel after receiving written instructions is 3-days or less.
