Create The Perfect Demo Reel (with Guest Speakers from LA Reels!) | Workshop Guru
In this week’s edition of Guru Tips for Actors, I am so excited to be speaking with special guests Noah Edward and Brett Newton of LA REELS, from inside the LA Reels Studio! Together, Noah, Brett, and I share essential steps that actors should take to prepare to shoot the best demo reel possible.

Demos are a hugely valuable marketing tool, and having a great reel is now an essential part of the actor’s toolkit.  Reels give casting directors, agents and managers evidence that not only are you a professional, smart actor, but you can also actually act!  🙂

They are ready to make a greater impact, which looks like building communities of collaborators, creating their own opportunities, and developing residual income streams. Ajarae believes that actors play a huge role in bringing forth a reality where every being on the planet is safe and valued, and The Table empowers actors to claim their seat.
