The BecomeAHost Production studio not only offers full reels, we also offer WEBISODES. A webisode is a quick 45sec - 1min video that usually depicts a 'current event' or 'tips & tricks' that you can load onto your website for buyers and production companies to watch. These are very useful and they are becoming a huge part of talent's toolbox. These Webisodes are also easier to send via email as they are usually shorter than full reel.
Another advatage of shooting short webisodes is that you can use them to show your personality based on a certain topic. For example, if a buyer wants to see you talking about what's going on the world of sports, however your reel is 2 mins long with only 15 seconds of sports material in it, then you can send the buyer this quick 45 second webisode of you talking about the latest in sports events/news/gossip etc.
If you're bored of reading this then you're in luck, I'm just going to let our girl Kirby Bridges show you what a great webisode should look like... (and yes, of course she shot this in the BecomeAHost Production Studio)
