Are you ready to learn how to begin your acting career or upgrade your current materials to help you effectively stand out? PERFECT!

 

During my consultations, we will go over the in's and out's of the field of on-camera acting. You select which level (between levels I, II, & III) that best describe you in your acting career. Upon processing payment you'll be asked to fill out a questionnaire pertaining to your experience level & acting materials so I can get a better idea of your journey. Afterwards, your materials will be reviewed and I will either confirm or deny that you have selected what I feel is the correct level for you. If for some reason the level in which you have selected is not the same that I believe works best for you; you will be recommended to refer to the level in which I have provided. If you decide that is not what you wish to do, payment can be refunded within 24hrs of email confirmation of level sent from me (Christopher Watkins). Failure to respond will result in NO REFUND under ANY circumstance. 

DETAILS ON LEVELS I, II, & III:

Each client (except for those who schedule “Quick Question” Sessions) are assigned a level. Levels are assigned based on where you are CURRENTLY in your career and are NOT based on the number of sessions you have had with me. A first-time client can very well be a Level III client. Materials must be submitted for review before being accepted. If you have no materials, you are automatically a Level I client.

DEMO REEL EDITING PROCESS 

It's easy for us actors to want to use every second we are on screen in our demo reels. WE ENJOY THE CRAFT! Though this is the case, the right choice is to go for the best parts of the footage that we have to put our best foot forward. During my process, I make sure that we get all of your best clips to help you stand out! 

What happens is you'll forward me your footage via email as links (DO NOT SEND ATTACHMENTS). If I have any questions or comments on the footage provided; I'll reach out. Then, you will be sent an invoice. Afterward, I'll get to work on creating your brand new reel! You will receive your new reel within 24-48hrs after the invoice has been paid in full. You are granted ONE revision of demo reel with your purchase. 

Base rate for a Demo Reel is $65 for the 1st Minute of Reel & $35 for Additional Minute of Reel

 

Options for Add-On's include:

CLIP SEPARATION ($15 for All Scenes): Separate all of your clips included within the edited reel into individual clips for easy upload to Acting Websites such as Actor's Access, Casting Networks, and more.

 

CLIP RETRIEVAL (YouTube/Vimeo/Network TV) ($15 Per Scene): Having trouble getting ahold of some great footage? I can help!
