clips for their acting reels.
2. Are you hiring?

3. Can I get a free reel?

need compensation to run.
4. Can you shoot my short film, pitch trailer, music video, Live Event, commercial, graduation photos, feature film, etc?
Answer: As of right now we do not accept these offers.
5. What if I decide to cancel?
Answer: It depends on the circumstances. The original deposit is non-refundable after a script is sent because you're paying for the script to be tailor made to you. You get one rewrite and after that get charged $50 per script. So 2 scripts with initial deposit down and $50 for each one after. Actors are locked in and sets for your scene are put together and taken down. If you cancel a week before the shoot we do not refund the money and you will have to start the process over and pay a new deposit to set up a new date. If you cancel on the shoot date we do not return your money back and will have to start the process over again with a new deposit and new starting balance.
6. How do you choose your We Cast Actors?
Answer: We choose actors we've worked with before and had a great time with. That way we know when we bring them back to help with another actor they will be pleasant, reliable and make it a good experience for our new client.
7. How long are the shoots?
Answer: Depends on the actor or scene. Knowing your lines will definitely make it easier when adjusting performance or getting through takes. Also we coach on set and newer actors need more coaching. Every experience is different so it will fluctuate. Usually its around 4 to 8 hours.
8. Can I come on set to watch?
Answer: This is a private set dedicated to the client that is paying for the service and we want to make sure our main focus is on getting them everything they need. We find that the more intimate setting is better for beginning actors to really let loose and be comfortable while performing and learning the craft. Having spectators in the room watch or trying to simultaneously teach while we're helping clients doesn't produce the best results and our main priority is the client at hand.
9. Can I write my own scene ?
Answer: We have a dedicated DP and editor as well as director and writer. These combined form the feel of a Real2Reel scene that our company stands by for our quality and brand. Our writer has an MFA degree in screen writing and knows the fundamentals, do's and don'ts and has proven experience with 3 produced movies and 90 plus reel scenes.
10. Do you give the actors the raw footage?
Answer: No, we do not give out raw footage ever. The service the client is paying for is to have professionals with expertise put together a finished product from the writing, directing, coaching, editing, sound design, music overlay, color grade etc.
11. Why don't you use the F word or sexually explicit language in your reels?
Answer: Because we don't feel we need to. It's our personally policy and we try to keep it PG-13 and tasteful to an extent. We totally understand if that is the tipping point for you but we feel we can provide great reels without the use of them.
