Keepin’ it Reel: Tuesday's LifeRaft Panel to Give Tips on Clips

You’ve amassed a respectable body of work. Now you need to condense it into that compelling sales tool that gets you even more work – the actor reel!

Ah, but how do you decide what to leave in and what to leave out? You’re not a casting director!

The next LifeRaft Live Stream on Tuesday, March 9 will offer “simple steps and industry protocol for choosing your best material and uploading reels online,” according to the SAG Foundation.

Featured panelists for the discussion, titled “The Real Deal on Actors Reels,” will be casting director and C.S.A. President Gary Zuckerbrod (Pulp Fiction, Without A Trace), casting director Matt Huffman (Letters from Iwo Jima, Rails & Ties), Kate Ward (The Ward Agency), Wayne Rawley (Secret Handshake Entertainment) and Robert Campbell (QuickNickel).


The first portion of the event, starting at 6 p.m. Pacific, will be pre-recorded, followed by a live online Q&A.
