In late 2014, Guy Chachkes and Steven C. Schmidt founded REELARC; a production company geared towards producing cinematic quality scenes for actors in the Tri-state area. Producing hundreds of scenes in their first year in business established them as the leading gold standard in this booming industry. This new class, crafted exclusively for T. Schreiber Studio, brings the first cinematic quality Reel Work class to our actors.


Week 1 – Casting and Script Analysis Primer
Each actor will perform a modern monologue or prepared side that showcases the character they think best represents their “type”. After class, actors will be cast into pairs and the staff writer Peter Stray will begin the process of creating an original scene to show your work at its best.  Information will be provided in-class to help each actor approach preparing their script.


Week 2 – Rehearsing 
Meet to rehearse your scene in class. (At this point in the process, you are still on book.) Receive coaching from Peter on breaking down the script to help craft a better performance.


Week 3 – On-Camera Performance
Steven or Guy will work with everyone on camera, detailing what a production team looks for and how to work together to create the best possible scene.  Lenses, shot types, and on-camera technique will all be discussed.


Week 4 – Shooting
The production team schedules your shoot which comes complete with 4K production, professional sound and lighting, and all locations scouted and secured. The scene will be fully edited and you will have a professional 60-90 second scene for inclusion in your reel. Specific times on set TBD.

Please submit picture and resume for admittance.  Limited enrollment.
