Got Clips? Need fabulous footage for your reel? Want to catch the eye of casting on Actors Access? Join us for this 2 day exclusive one of a kind workshop intensive!

If you are an actor you see the need to have strong clips of your work. Either for submitting on Actors Access along with your auditions or to put together for a reel. Casting sees so many actors whose clips are little more than self-tapes, a blank wall background, the actor talking into the air. We all love casting people and know how hard they work. At the end of the day what they need for us to do is help out their workload — show them clips that really put you there, in a movie, on a TV show, not in front of a blank wall.

If you are an actor you see the need to have strong clips of your work. Either for submitting on Actors Access along with your auditions or to put together for a reel. Casting sees so many actors whose clips are little more than self-tapes, a blank wall background, the actor talking into the air. We all love casting people and know how hard they work. At the end of the day what they need for us to do is help out their workload — show them clips that really put you there, in a movie, on a TV show, not in front of a blank wall.

The competition is fierce out there. Think about it, who would you rather cast? An actor whose clips are a series of self-tapes? Or one that is having that heart to heart with his brother in the garage while fixing the ’62 Mustang? Or a young mom actually putting a band aid on their kid’s knee, not just someone doing a monologue about it?  Or a couple on a hot date planning their future while watching the sunset, not just an actress in a blank room speaking to her “lover” off camera? Sigh. You get the picture, you need to create a picture.

Do your own clips? But that sounds tricky, you might say.

We beg to differ.

Do you have a smart phone? Do you have $24 bucks to buy a plugin mic? Do you have a set of soft boxes to light the scene? (You do have those cause you use them all the time for your auditions, right?) Do you know how to use iMovie or the like? Or how to watch a YouTube Video to learn how? Know your type? Know what clips you need? Have pen and paper? OK, you’ve got everything you need to make some REAL CLIPS for your REEL!

In our workshop, presented by Actors In Action Conservatory, we are going to show you step by step how to write, direct, light, shoot, do sound for, edit & add music to a reel clip. If you are at all intimidated by the process you won’t be after attending this.

You’ll see how to make a dynamic, powerful, high-quality clip that will help you stand out in the sea of self-tapes that actors are passing off for clips right now.

This will be a game changer for your acting career.

How It Will Work

Two actors will be selected and based on their types and scene needs for their reel/clips we will develop suitable characters, create a scenario, and write a 2-page script right on the spot. As we do this the basics of strong script writing will be discussed. After the demo script is written all actors in attendance will pair up/form groups of no more than 3 to 4 and be coached on writing their own scenes to be shot by the actors at a later time. The following day the demo script will be shot on location of the workshop. To keep things very accessible, we’ll leave our Red Camera at home and shoot on an iPhone. You will experience firsthand how to direct, light, do sound for, create shot lists, run a small set, and pull the best performance out of your actors, etc. After a lunch break, we’ll edit the clip on iMovie, showing how to pick the best takes and really make the actors standout, and finally we’ll add in a bit of music to top off the clip. The two actors selected will go home with clips for their reels, all other participants will leave with a solid start to their own clips and the experience and confidence of having walked through the entire clip making process.

Don’t let your clips get lost in a sea of mediocracy. After this workshop you will have the power and confidence to really make your reel work stand out.
