– Video reels are essential, even if it’s just a monologue you record.
A video reel, also known as a demo reel or show reel, is a compilation of an actor’s best work. It is used to showcase an actor’s range and talent to casting directors and producers. A good video reel will highlight an actor’s strongest performances and give a sense of their type and range.
Most actors have a number of different types of scenes in their reel, including: monologues, scenes with other actors, comedic scenes, dramatic scenes, etc. An actor’s reel should be around two to three minutes long and should be edited together in a way that highlights the actor’s strengths.
A great video reel is essential for any actor who wants to succeed in the business. It is one of the best ways to show off your talent and get yourself noticed by the right people.

– VO (voice over) reels go a long way.
A voice over reel is an essential tool for any actor who wants to break into the world of voice acting. A good reel will showcase the actor’s range, versatility and unique selling points as a voice artist.
A well-produced reel will feature a variety of different kinds of material, such as commercials, animation, video games, and film trailers. The actor should be able to demonstrate a wide range of emotions and styles in their performance.
A good voice over reel can be the difference between getting the role or not. It is important to put time and effort into creating a strong reel that accurately represents your skills as a voice actor.
