At Reel Artistry, the project is YOU. Our creative team collaborates for your career, your success, and your empowerment as an artist.
The 4-Phase Reel Creation Process comes from a place of partnership, encouraging raw, constructive, and all-encompassing feedback from casting directors. Rather than being in a classroom setting with a dozen other students, we are committed to individualized, one-on-one attention devoted to you and your journey as an actor.
During your filming session, you’ll have your director, live accompanist, full professional film crew, makeup artist, and producer onsite to support you... oh, and you’ll also get the most professional reel of your career.
Our Artistry Advisors are all active musical theatre professionals who influence the pulse of the industry on a regular basis. Each advisor brings different experience and perspective to the table, offering a unique stamp to every reel we create based on the relationship that you establish with your advisors.

Phase 1: Kick-Off Seminar (Group survey)
Sunday, September 9 (6-8pm)
Our process begins with a self-audit where you will complete an in-depth survey about how you view yourself within your career. Then you'll meet in a group with the Producer to take a deeper dive into your career goals and what you want to achieve during our time together.
Phase 2: The Workshop (Private appointments)
September 15, 2018
In an individual session, you’ll perform your best material for our Artistry Advisor panel to offer feedback on. Collectively, you and the team will select your most compelling pieces and identify your niche of castability in today’s industry, walking away with the Castability Overview: an actionable plan for your reel.
This is the crucial feedback you rarely get, but absolutely need to improve your approach - valuable insight that you never have access to in a regular audition setting.
Phase 3: One-on-One Coaching
Armed with your Castability Overview from the Workshop, you’ll work one-on-one with our Director to fine tune three audition cuts to perform in your reel. In this private session, you’ll finesse your storytelling to match your unique castability and prepare to translate that to the screen.
Phase 4: The Film Shoot
October 6, 2018
In this phase, you’ll have access to a full film crew, Director, makeup artist, and accompanist, all of whom will be with you to ensure that your reel is the most impactful tool in your career arsenal. Your finished reel will be professionally edited and perfected to share, so all you have to do is show up and do what you do best, with the best.

"I loved the in-depth nature of the Reel Artistry process. It forced me to dig deep and figure out exactly what I should be putting forward in order to be successful, rather than just resting on what I’ve always done."

"The branding process with Reel Artistry pushed me to think past what was right in front of me. Kenny made me think about my career in a very specific way. The actual shoot day itself was AMAZING! The energy from everyone involved was so supportive and encouraging."
