It was such a great experience working with Reel Monster Productions! Tim Richardson wrote two amazing scenes for me that were written pretty quickly. The scenes gave me great variety with characters that I would like to portray. Working on set was fun and I didnt have to worry about anything. My scenes were edited so professionally, the camera and sound crew were awesome. I also got the footage back rather quickly. Tim also personally carried a few hundred buckets of hot water from his tub to fill up that kiddie pool so I wouldn't have to sit in cold water. I hope that I can drown Tim again in another scene, that was pretty dope =)

I had a great time shooting with Reel Monster! They have a great creative group mind and open to ideas from the actors. They worked very well together, got good coverage for both actors in the scene and did fantastic work pulling everything together in post.
One thing that I was really impressed by was the timeliness and quality in which they returned the finished product. In an actor's world of independent projects where one can: wait 2 months to film, wait 3 months to get a finished copy or sometimes not even get the copy. Getting our work back with good quality is so important. A month is reasonable time to get a finish product back from editing. Tim and Reel Monster got mine back in about a week and a half.
I got an audition off of that reel in around 3 weeks after getting it loaded on Actor's Access. I'm not saying it will happen that fast for everyone, but it helped me. Check out their clip of us in "Special Delivery" and see what quality you can expect when you order yours.
I highly recommend Reel Monsters Productions to all actors. They're an awesome company! They are affordable and very creative. They custom wrote my script carefully following my request on the type of genres and adult content to be used. My career took off in less than a week of posting and submitting my demo reel. I've booked some roles without even auditioning just off what they've seen on my reel.
Thanks Reel Monsters Productions for helping me advance my acting career!
Tim Richardson & Reel Monster Productions are a class act. The first time I met Tim I told him I could tell he was in the film industry. He then began to share his passion with me about what it is he does. "All you have to do is be yourself in front of the camera," he said.
I have never been an actor, I've never really wanted to act either. It wasn't something that I was opposed to; so when Tim began to encourage me & talk about the possibilities it really made me think.
I decided to shoot some acting reels with Reel Monster. I shot two scenes "Crosshairs" and "FriendZoned". Tim coached me through every step. I never felt out of place. The reels are of highest quality, & I have received exceptional feedback from everyone. I would encourage anyone to contact Reel Monster Productions to begin, or further your resume in the film industry.
Working with Reel Monster for the first time in actuality really felt like it was our 5th or 6th installment. For someone watching from the outside in you'd think we've been working together for a while. The chemistry between production and client was off the meter. From begging to end we laughed, joked, and most important worked. Josh, the audio engineer, Clay on camera, and Tim kept our spirits up with their uplifting pointers and direction...oh and timeless jokes lol. Professionalism came first and foremost with the endless efforts Tim Richardson put in to bring these projects to past. From the casting to script to set arranging no entity were left short of amazing. If you need reel material, I'm sorry if you need epic movie segments for your reel and you haven't contacted Reel Monster then your selling yourself and your craft short. Thanks again Reel Monster and I can't wait to do it again!
Being cast as Noir in Tim Richardson’s short film Poisoned Amore was an extreme honor. I briefly met the crew after appearing as a Zombie in another production called A Girl and her Zombie, which also was an absolute creative BLAST. Little did I know, however, that I had stumbled upon a dynamite production crew. From beginning to endReel Monster Productions was on point and professional with the preparation and execution of the short we filmed. Even when I was half naked- I was being body painted by the brilliant Maha Hardison before you get any ideas- the shoot ran smoothly and efficiently. I did not even notice that it took 7 hours to get painted. Time literally flew by and I would do it all over again a hundred more times. Not to mention how much fun it was to work with Tim Richardson and Reel Monster Productions. I felt like I had been friends with them for years, even if it was only the second time I had worked with the crew. Playing Noir was indeed arduous. Poisoned Amore had a bit of everything: foreign language, romance, drama, and comedy. Filming, however, was a different story. With Tim’s direction I have never felt so comfortable or prepared for a role in my entire life.
I just want to give a sincere thank you to the cast and crew of Poisoned Amore for the long hours they put into completing the project. An actor can only do so much on his or her own and without a strong production team, there is no work for those in the acting profession. This film will most definitely be the highlight of my acting reel and The Dress Rehearsal is literally a game changer in my acting career. It will elevate me to the next level and I am forever grateful!
If your looking for some legit, great quality scenes then Reel Monster Productions is the place for you. So far I've done three projects with them and had a blast on all three. From playing a slave fighting for love to being a badass villain in a zombie apocalypse. They custom write the scenes to bring out your best qualities. They are very passionate about producing great scenes but, also make sure that the client is having fun in the process. I must say it was never a dull moment! Will be working with them again in the near future.
I was looking for an affordable but quality reel. As we all know so many claim to offer these services but I trusted Reel Monster Productions and boy did they come through. Custom written they were able to capture exactly what i needed! Very professional and affordable, these guys were able to stretch my characters beyond my expectations! (I played a hitman in "Special Delivery" and a pastor who was married to the church in "Confession") Everyone who views them are blown away! They can bring your idea to life or create one to your satisfaction. I'll definitely work with Reel Monster Productions again and so will you!
"Working with Tim and his crew at Reel Monster Productions was Awesome! Tim made me feel very comfortable and at ease so I could give my best. I had so much fun making this scene and getting all bloody! Everyone was very supportive. I would absolutely recommend them to any child actor because the whole crew were really fun to work with." ~Addison Lee, actress
"The Reel Monster Production Crew were very professional and very enjoyable to work with. Safety is always a concern for me as a mother and I felt my child was in good hands given the scene she was in. I was able to be on set to view the entire filming and also on hand to provide the FX Makeup needed for the scene. I could not be happier with the finished product and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a custom demo reel."~ Jennifer Lee, mother of a child actor
If you are an actor or actress looking for creative, innovative scenes for your reel, I would recommend Tim and the Reel Monster Productions team. They were very easy to work with and fast. What I like is that they write, shoot and edit your scenes for one price. If you need coaching, they are able to go over the scenes with you as well. I would definitely use them again. They did a great job!
"What does a bubbly and fun-loving mother of three have in common with a grungy, crude, zombie-killing gang leader? They are both me. Thanks to the creative vision of Tim Richardson, and the rest of the Reel Monster Productions team, I was given the amazing opportunity of transforming into a true monster; "Eightball." A Girl and Her Zombie is a film I am proud to be a part of. My versatility as an actor will truly shine through the screen with this project. Reel Monster Productions is a team of true professionals. Not only did we have the most talented hair and makeup artists to help us make our transformations, but each character was given their own hand-crafted weapon to complete the look. This experience was like a crazy dream you never want to wake up from. If you are an actor in need of great footage for your reel, I highly recommend Reel Monster Productions!" - Theresa Gause, Actor
I am so glad that I had a great experience with that team! They absolutely know what they are doing. From the beginning writing the script/story to the end directing/editing.
It was so easy to work with them. Tim is a very creative man, he is full of ideas and it looks like it never stops. I would definitely recommend him to all actors who want to work in film and need a reel of good quality.
Update: Thanks to the scenes I shot with Reel Monster Productions I was able to sign with one of the best agents in Atlanta and I'm auditioning several times per week every week.
Where to start? Really can't say enough great things about working with Reel Monster Productions. They will go through fire to make sure the scenes are of the best quality. Reel Monster will make you feel right at home even if its your first time on camera. The guys work really well together and you can tell they enjoy working together and they enjoy what they do which makes the experience all that more wonderful. Incredibly professional bunch of guys that know how to put together a great scene.
Turn around time for the scenes were unbelievably fast! The fact they get the scenes turned around so quickly is incredible. The faster you get your scene the faster you can get it out to the world. All that just means you have the chance to book auditions and roles faster than everyone else.
I cant' wait to work with Reel Monster again!
- Daniel Keegan
Wow, what an experience on set with these professionals. Reel Monsters Productions, you guys made me feel like I was back on a live set, with your professionalism. I can always appreciate the working environment when things are getting done and every one is doing their job, the team brought great energy and everyone loved their job, from camera to grip to the producer just an awesome experience.
If you are seeking to get reel footage to kick start your career Reel Monster Productions would be a great choice, you have a chance to get customized quality scenes. The turn around for your project is really good and the best part of it all is the PRICE ask yourself what are you willing to put into your craft, career, dream look at these prices and the body of work you will be getting. It's definitely worth every penny I recommend Reel Monsters productions to anyone who does not have a reel! And the veteran working actors who need to update their reels.
Thank you Reel Monster Productions
I had a blast working with Reel Monsters Productions. The crew was very professional and tidy while on set. They were very prepared for the scene, and got everything done quickly. The writing for their scenes is always phenomenal, but they're still willing to tweak dialogue to fit your comfort level. I'd refer them to any actors looking for reel footage. Great experience!
Jock McKissic, Actor
What an honor to work with reel monster productions. I had the epic opportunity to work on a production called "A Girl and Her Zombie" as the main character Bones. My character was a villain in a group of ruthless post-apocalyptic killers taking anything they could to survive. Working with the crew was an extreme blast. The set was professional and had everything from readings to post very organized.
An actor is as strong as their team, and this is the only team you need. Tim, the cinematographer, the editor and the entire crew will do everything to make you look amazing!
I can't wait to work with then again. And I know I will see more amazing work from them. When you have your chance to work with Reel Monster Productions, take it!
