Updated Acting Demo Reel

An actor’s headshot and resume is an actor’s business card. That’s what gets him, or her the audition. However I strongly believe an actor’s demo reel is even more important than the headshot or resume because it highlights and showcases the actor’s talent. The demo reel shows casting directors and producers what the actor can do; what’s his or her acting chops. It’s basically a commercial for showcasing the actor’s talent.

Since I played in quite a few films and short films recently, it was time to update my demo reel. The video includes footage from Searching For Angels, Doctor Director, Symphony Dark and 6 Ways to Sundown. It’s pretty much a mix of gangster, romantic and goofy characters. Below you’ll find the YouTube link to my new acting demo reel. Let me know if you like it in the comments below, or if I should quit acting. Actually don’t say that, it’ll hurt too much.




Finally playing a detective…

At one point in an actor’s career, he or she will eventually play a cop. It’s inevitable. I finally got to play the role of a detective, Richard Hopkins, who isn’t quite popular tough cop neighbourhood’s station; but more of a wannabe detective seeking his father’s approval – who’s a much bigger detective in town.

The film shows a young man Richard (me) going through his first murder case in which the number one suspect is his long-life friend Verona. He not only finds the killer, but also his first love. Can you guess who that might be….? (Come on, it’s easy…)

Here are some pictures from the set, which you can also find on my Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/albertotihanactor
