STEP 1) THE SCRIPT
Everything starts with a script. Do you have a script you are passionate about shooting? Is it under 2 pages and properly formatted? If so, please submit it in an email for our approval. If you don't have a script, we offer writers who will write it for you for a $75 fee. Please contact us for details.
STEP 2) CASTING
You will need an actor to play opposite of you? Do you have somebody in mind? Perhaps, they will share the cost? We recommend your scene partner be very strong, it will only help you step up your game.
If you DO NOT have a scene partner, there is hope. You can create a CASTING POST in our blog, "FIND A SCENE PARTNER." Just specify whether you will be paying for the scene, or if you expect the actor to share the cost. Once you have submitted a casting post, we also try to help you find a scene partner from our talented pool of actors.
The bottom line, if have you have your SCENE PARTNER and a SCRIPT ready to go, you clearly have your sh-t together. Taking control of your destiny, will get you far in this industry. If that is the case, in most cases we can go into production within 2 weeks.
ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED (STEP 1 - THE SCRIPT) and (STEP 2 - CASTING), we can have a real discussion about your shoot.
We can schedule a conference call to discuss the details about bringing your scene to life, after which a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to lock a date for shooting.
STEP 3) PRE-PRODUCTION: REHEARSALS
Best Shot Reels expects all actors to rehearse with their scene partner and an acting coach prior to your shoot. If you DO NOT have a coach, we do offer rehearsal services at $100 hr.
STEP 4) PRE-PRODUCTION: FINDING A LOCATION
Best Shot Reels shoots all over the Los Angeles area and has pre-selected many perfect locations for shooting in urban, rural, desert and ocean side environments. We can also provide a small home, located in beautiful Chatsworth, CA, complete with kitchen, living space, dining room, bedroom, and a yard. However, if your scene requires something different, we encourage you to provide the location.
Do you want to shoot in a hospital, a court room, or a police station? We have access to movie sound stages at competitive rates.
STEP 5) LIGHTS, CAMERA'S ACTION
Best Shot Reels works with a small professional crew based on the requirements of your scene. We shoot on the Red Epic Camera used on major motion pictures, supply the lighting, grip, audio equipment, and everything necessary to make your production top notch. Shooting a typical 1.5 page script normally takes between 3 to 4 Hours. We arrive with the crew and gear, you come rehearsed and ready to go.
STEP 6) POST PRODUCTION: EDITING
We will edit your scene on a state-of-the-art 4K Editing Suite, provide the Sound Design, Music, Sound Mix, and Color Correction. We can also provide visual effects and compositing at an extra cost. You can expect delivery of your final scene within 8 to 10 days after shooting it. We can provide in any format: H264, Windows media, 4k, QT Pro Res, DVD, Blu-ray, you name it.
