A reel should represent your dedication as an artist, and your range as an actor. Make sure the company you chose, will bring your best performances to light through skilled on-set directing and superior editing. Everything that goes into making a great film should be a part of your reel: Professional on-set direction, great lighting, sound and cinematography.
