An acting demo reel will consist of on camera acting work you have already done on tv, commercials, films, etc (NO THEATRE).

You will be paired up with an industry professional from Spec Labs team that will help you create your brand new acting reel. If you don’t have  a lot of previous footage, that may be okay, as we can write and film a new scene for your reel. This reel is the actor's calling card and is meant to be submitted continuously for prospective clients and auditions.
