This was by far the best shoot session I've ever had. Steve and Kevin were brilliant! i was consulted at the beginning to make sure we were all on the same page regarding story, character, sets etc. It was easy going and fun. Steve gave directions that helped me bring out the best in myself. Overall I'm very very happy with my final product and will certainly recommend them to others. I hope everyone's experience will be as good as mine. Can't wait to share my reel! You guys ROCK!!!

This place is awesome! Retta was great from the beginning, helping me with any questions I had. The actual shoot was very fun, and Kevin and Steve made me feel incredibly comfortable. Steve gave me plenty of helpful directions, and always checked in with me to make sure I understood. Kevin did a fantastic job editing the takes I picked, and the final product looks so professional! Definitely would recommend to anyone who wants to add to their reel.

Steve's ridiculously talented. He was quickly able to transform a < 200 sq. ft. black box of a room into various realistic sets, he filmed the scenes beautifully by subtly moving the camera or zooming in when appropriate, and he gave great direction. Kevin's edit was also really well done and the sounds and music he added made the reel feel especially polished. Everyone I dealt with at CYR was courteous and professional from start to finish. I highly recommend their services.

Amazing work! As a 56-year old who is just getting career started, I am VERY careful to spend my money wisely (aren't we all?). Without a demo reel I was at a serious disadvantage. Create Your Reel stood out to me. I was never disappointed at any step along the way, from my first timid inquiry to the finished product. Also, I'm in Atlanta so that complicated matters even more...but it was SO WORTH IT! GET IT DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!

The Team at Create Your Reel is ON IT! From beginning to end - they are organized, prepared and totally personable. Retta is a rockstar during the phone consultation, she was very thorough and quick to follow up with all the information, I had no question or doubt about scheduling after I spoke with her. Steve is AMAZING, I did two mini-logues and before we shot he gave me the whole run down of the process and made sure my expectations were being met. I trusted his expertise and am so glad I did - I loved the sets he created and the direction he provided. Kevin is the JAM! He was very prompt at getting the scenes back to me and the edits he made to my reel look perfect! Overall I seriously could not be happier! Thanks Guys!

Create Your Reel is the only place I trust when it comes to my reel. I had my free phone consultation with Retta and her professionalism sold it for me. I filmed three scenes with them and couldn't have been more pleased. Steve's direction was both effective and well communicated. I still go to Kevin for all my editing services. Great company run by great people.

I had such a GREAT experience with CYR from start to finish! They are all professional, friendly, easy to work with, talented, and efficient (which I think we can all appreciate). Why haven't you worked with them already?

I had never done a professional reel before so didn't really know what to expect. I heard that Create Your Reel was the best so I took the chance. Well, they LIVED UP to every bit of praise I heard. Wonderful staff who are really committed to providing the BEST experience for the actor. I am so grateful I decided to listen to my intuition, and the reviews, and had them do my reel. I am very happy with the finished product, it is professional and looks like it came right off the screen. I definitely recommend Create Your Reel for anyone who wishes to either begin, update, or improve their reel.

I flew in from Miami just to shoot my demo reel with Create Your Reel, simply because I know they are the best. The entire experience, from speaking to Retta and creating great scripts to the minute I walked in the door. Steve and Kevin were very welcoming and provided a great work environment, so it was easy to relax, collaborate, and create a demo that I am very pleased with. I highly recommend CYR.

Very pleased with the results of my reel working with the team at CYR. Professional shoot with excellent direction and production support. Also, very collaborative approach to creating the scenes, characters and scripts. So, bottom line is with CYR you get a great team of professionals who work with you collaboratively to acheive the objectives you have for your reel. Highly recommend them.

Best experience and well worth the money and time. Very professional: from the point of the first phone call with Retta, the script writing and preparation to the actual production day with Steve. My daughter was treated with respect and kindness and it made the day extra special. Kevin has been wonderful with my editing questions and made sure her piece was completed in the time I needed it. I would highly recommend Create Your Reel for the actual creation of a new piece or putting together your projects!

It was great working with these guys! I'm definitely proud of my reel and am already receiving invitations for more auditions, right out of the gate. Just yesterday I received 3 and have only had my reel up for a couple of days!

I'll definitely be working with CYR again in the future, to show even more of my versatility.

I loved working with them, from start to finish. They are a very talented crew that worked tireless with me to create a reel that i'm so proud of. They have the most reasonable rates, especially for the quality of the product you receive and the amount of personal direction that is included with the minilogues. My booking rate has increased and it has turned out to be a great investment into the future of my career. I will definitely be working with them in the future to continue adding scenes that will show my work as an actor in the best possible light!

I chose CREATE YOUR REEL, because in my research I found their work to be the best. And I was not disappointed. I truly love the demo reel they produced for me. It looks great; sounds great. Great script. Very professional group of people. I highly recommend!!

Kevin, Retta, Steve + everyone else are AMAZING at what they do! Think about this: do you have the time, energy, creativity, or money to get some friend to film you in your bedroom so that you can have a clip of something to send to a potential agent, manager, or casting? As a developmental actor, it can be hard to beef up your resume or show your work in a real, professional way. That's where CYR comes in - they are SO good at what they do. So professional, helpful, and encouraging. My day on set was easy, fun, and very timely. Then a week later I got my footage and then a week after that received my final reel. I've already gotten great feedback from my agents + managers! Don't waste your time, go to CYR, and let it take you to the next level. Thanks again CYR Team!

Kevin, Retta, Steve and the whole gang at CYR are the best. They provide a great service to actors who need a whole reel, or maybe just a clip to round out their reel. I've shot with them twice and have gotten great, professionally produced footage quickly and easily. The footage has helped "beef" up my reel, which in turn has gotten me called in much more frequently. Combine that with some great headshots and this is an invaluable tool for the developmental actor!

Don't waste your time trying to become a one-person production company and shoot footage for your real yourself (unless you really know what you're doing). Leave it to the pros at CYR who will take care of everything. They have a mini-sound stage with tons of sets and props and they put everything together for you. All you have to do is show up and be your best performer.

They can even recommend great make-up artists as well. It's a turnkey service run by excellent and kind folks. If you're on the fence, or thinking of another company that does this, just do CYR, you'll be happy you did.

Everybody over at the Create Your Reel team is fantastic! They are super professional, super supportive, and super fast. I couldn't have asked for a better reel-making experience. They provide great scripts that really showcase your talents - and also can help you out with regards to directors and makeup artists, if you need, the day of the shoot! I highly recommend them!
