Your Actor Reel: What’s the Point?

Operation "Get Cast" underway? To help you get your package together, it's important to understand the role of the reel. We talk about headshots a decent amount over here, so it's time to give video its turn to shine with a series dedicated to actor reels!

For this #AskAnExpert series, we turned to Kristina Latour, actor, demo reel editor, and founder of Latour de Force Productions. She’s considered the industry's demo reel expert for actors and knows what length, content, and style perform best for the decision-makers who will get you booked. 

Why does an actor need a reel? Kristina tells all.

Kristina’s been in the industry as a performer for over 20 years and as a demo reel editor since 2006. She combines years of her industry experience to produce professional demo reels, helping actors further their careers by booking more work. Her clients include actors in prime time television, feature films, and Broadway.
