If you are serious about adding new or updated clips to your demo reel... these are not the guys.5 days it took me just to try get a response. No luck. Once I did I talked with them over the phone. Rigid and inflexible they seemed more interested in my money than in my questions or me. They say they produce professional scenes but they want $300+ for scenes that don't move and 150+ for editing?! What do you edit? You only shoot one angle and your scenes look like student projects.Sorry guys but in the end you are just lazy and don't deserve my money. No offense but you are misleading and I never felt any real interest from you once I started questioning your process.Glad others are happy but me not so much. Maybe im just an a-hole. I'll figure something else out.

Really expensive and it was only one angle. I felt at moments they should of shot back at the other person, but that's just me.

My experience with this company has been and continues to be nothing short of amazing. I was recommended to them from a very reputable theatrical agent in LA. From the detail in the initial conversation to the final product, they were professional and made feel comfortable. I walked away with an amazing product and I continue to use their services and highly recommend them to all my actor friends!

This was my first experience creating my own reel and I couldn't have been more pleased. I told them exactly what I wanted and they created three scenes that showcased my talents. When I felt like one of the scenes needed to be reworked, they were receptive to my ideas as well as throwing in some of their own. We filmed each scene over and over until we were ALL happy with the results. The thing that really did it for me was how comfortable they made me feel. And, my amount of auditions has increased. Worth every penny!

These guys are amazing. It is very much your reel and they will work with you to make sure you are the best you can be from the moment you sign up to getting the footage in your hand. The production value is awesome and I would recommend them to anyone!

My experience with them was unbelievable. They really work with you more then a 100% to get what you need for your reel.I had so much fun, and recommend anybody to work these guys. If I need more on my reel, they are the first one on my list and the only one on my list.

Had a great time creating my reel with this company. They were very professional and knew there stuff. I felt I didn't have to worry about anything even my performance. They took the time to go over every shot to pick the best one with me. No worries fellow actors; they will make you look good!

I love this company!! I have such an amazing reel that has gotten me a lot of praise. It is important for an actor to have good quality footage of you on tape. It is also important to have on tape what is what your market is. With create your reel I was in control of the finished product and with their expertise got amazing footage out of it. What they do with the lighting and the shots is impeccable. They are a great recourse for actors and anyone needing a reel should use them.

I don't know where to start. I had the most amazing working experience with everyone! They definitely proved to be AMAZING! I filmed 3 scenes and the director, Steve was great. He took his time and really made sure that I walked away with a great product. I was amazed at how each set was made, how perfect the lighting was and the overall quality of my reel. It was such a joy working with them and I would HIGHLY recommend them to EVERYONE!

Extremely professional operation out of a small storefront in a mixed commercial/industrial area in North Hollywood. The bottom line is that my agents needed me to give them a reel. I made this one, and they flipped out. I found the staff to be professional and easy to work with -- I needed to have a lot of leeway with making my own scenes, and they were flexible, patient and accommodating. The end result is that I got the reel I wanted - the reel that is right for me as a performer. Far more efficient than building a reel out of less than ideal cuts from student film, etc. Note that I paid to have an outside hair and makeup artist be on set. I would recommend that. I also had an outside director, in part to ensure my own control over the scenes. You might consider bringing your own director if you already know exactly what you want, but obviously it's not necessary. Others' reels and feedback would indicate that Steve does a great job with directing too. He did DP on my reel and the sets and shots were amazing. Last note: the post prod on my reel is so great. And that's all included. You just have to wait a week after the shoot.

I'd give more stars if I could. GREAT TEAM! Great writing, great directing, great editing. All you have to do is look at their samples to see that they are head and shoulders above the competition. It feels AMAZING to finally have reels (I shot drama and comedy) that I can feel really proud of. Can't recommend them enough! Do it. Do it now.

This was by far one of the most positive experiences I have had in the industry. These guys are so professional and they don't stop until you get exactly what you need. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. It is so vital for actors to have a great reel these days and they provide that 100%. I can not say enough about them!

Create Your Reel is amazing! From the initial phone consultation to receiving your DVD copy in the mail, CYR staff is informative, friendly, helpful, and most importantly, very professional!The final DVD product is awesome! HD, background music, very professional, the whole shabang! I HIGHLY recommend Create Your Reel! Not only are headshots/resume the general standard these days, but so are reels! It's almost impossible to get a decent agent without one!Thank you CYR staff! You guys are awesome!

Create Your Reel offers an amazing product. I was skeptical at first because we all have heard horror stories of wasted money in this business. But CYR has given me a beautiful demo reel that is both professional looking and high quality. And they are very nice people to boot! I fully intend on using them again.

I just recently filmed a reel with Create Your Reel and I could not be happier with the outcome. They are professional, creative, and very easy/fun to work with. I am very happy with the product I received, and very pleased that I was able to have my acting coach (Todd Rohrbacher) come in and direct me in the scenes they produced.ALSO, parking was VERY easy and free, which is always a relief in L.A.

I had my reel done by Create Your Reel on June 18th, 2011. Not only was I impressed by the way Kevin King handled my appointment, but also by the fantastic direction given by Director Steve Hosford. These two guys are true pros and they will help you get the best reels possible! From the very first phone call consultation, to the actual day of the shoot, Create Your Reel NEVER let me down! I am 100% happy!

I shot three scenes with Create Your Reel and that reel has upped my audition and booking ratio considerably. I got a great quality professional finished product and they were really easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Create Your Reel to any actor who needs a killer reel.
