Welcome to Atlanta Speed Scenes!
Production is ramping back up in Atlanta, and now is the perfect time to spruce up your tools with a new clip that showcases where you are as an actor or a character type that maybe nobody has given you a chance at yet!
NOTICE: Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Atlanta Speed Scenes requires all talent/crew to wear masks when on set and not shooting, as well as practice social distancing as much as possible. If you have been exposed to Covid-19 or have had symptoms you will need to quarantine for 2 weeks before shooting. Contact us if you need to reschedule. Also, Locations we provide are limited to public spaces currently, so if you would like to shoot somewhere specific, you will need to provide a location. You can read our FAQ to get more details.
Atlanta Speed Scenes was founded in 2013 when we as actors ourselves, decided we were sick of never being able to get footage back from indie and student films that we worked on in an attempt to build our reels to book more high profile projects. It became a catch 22! You can’t get more auditions without footage, but you can’t get footage because the things you are booking don’t follow through and give the footage they promise. Well, we decided to change that. Now, actors can have high quality footage, that is specific to them and the goals they have, in a very short period of time!
What is a “Speed Scene?”
Speed Scenes are our specific brand of custom written demo reel scenes for actors. They are usually between 1-2 minutes long, and are custom written by us to showcase the actor in the best way possible so that casting directors can get a sense of who the actor is, what they look like on camera in a real film scenario, and immediately get an idea of their acting ability. Our scenes are simple dialog driven scenes shot in mostly closeups and medium closeups so that actors can see your eyes, facial expressions. We base the way we shoot our scenes on feedback from casting directors in our region and what they want to see when watching an actor’s demo reel. A SPEED SCENE is NOT a replacement for high quality studio TV/film footage, but it can be a stepping stone to bridge the gap until you get there!
How does it work?
Booking a Speed Scene is very easy! All you need to do is click on “Schedule a Scene” in the menu above to be taken to a booking calendar with all of our current availability! We are not currently accepting any special requests, so what you see there is what we have available. You can book the scene directly from there. We do require payment up front to lock in the date, but if you are booking one of the higher priced packages, you can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work out an arrangement that may only require a deposit at the time of booking. We do not currently offer in person or phone consultations as we are just simply too busy most of the time, and we keep our prices low by keeping it as self contained as possible. If you do have any further questions that are not answered by reading everything on our website, including our Frequently Asked Questions, you can email them to the address above and we will answer them as quickly as we can! Upon booking you will receive a questionnaire via email that will ask for information to help us determine the best course to take for your scene!
You and a partner will shoot a 1-2 minute long scene from a custom written script written by us. Many actors choose this option and split the cost in half so that both actors get quality footage.
With this discounted package rate, you get two scenes instead of just one. A great value for someone who knows they want to have clips of contrasting characters.
Don’t have any footage and need nearly an entire reel’s worth of material? Three scenes shot in a single day will provide you with plenty of awesome quality footage.
