Camp Demo Reel

CAMP DEMO REEL is a six day intensive that teaches script and scene preparation, on-camera acting technique and culminates in filming two scenes – one comedic and one dramatic – for your demo reel.

We will write and provide customized scenes and then direct and film them with a professional crew and broadcast quality HD equipment. 

The first four days of camp are jam-packed with on-camera technique and film analysis classes in addition to individual scene rehearsals. The last two days are dedicated to filming personal demo reel scenes which premiere on our Vimeo Showcase. We also provide students with a copy of their completed reel, and if students have existing footage they would like to add, our editors can create a master reel for an additional fee.
