Actor Demo Reels & Audition Videos

Are you an actor in need of a demo reel or a self-tape audition that can quickly showcase your talents with professional quality footage? We got you covered.

FULL DEMO REEL PACKAGE

Here at Katie Travis Films we offer full demo reel production packages. With handcrafted original scenes you get to perform the type of characters  you want. Filmed like clips right out of a movie and edited into a succinct 60-90sec reel, this will give you the professional edge you are looking for.

For those new to acting, not to worry, Katie Travis-Plaisted has experience on both sides of the camera as a director, actor (theater/film), and acting coach and will guide you through each scene and give you the helpful tips you need to be on camera well.

We will take your selections and write three 30-60sec original scripts for you. These will be sent to you ASAP so that we will be able to develop your visual look (costume/make-up/props) for the piece before our scheduled shoot day.

We will then schedule an approx. 6hr film shoot of your scenes on location – typically in the Chaska/Chanhassen, Minnesota area.

Upon completion of the original scenes and the production day is scheduled, a Call Sheet will be emailed to you with all the details you will need for the shoot. Your original scenes will then be shot with professional grade equipment. While filming Katie Travis-Plaisted will help direct you through your scenes to get your best performance on camera.

The footage will be edited into a 60-90sec finished Demo Reel Package and the full resolution digital video file will be sent to you within 1-week after filming.
