Holly reached out about a commercial demo reel at the suggestion of casting director/ producer Andy Roth. As most people know, I am selective about who I work with- but when we met on Zoom to discuss her goals, it was evident that she was more than ready! We got to work selecting scripts that would represent her natural character, and then pushed a little in different directions to show more range.

Over the course of three directed sessions from her home studio (which I also helped her tweak), we assembled a total of five full spots (not snippets- but the entire commercials). Holly made light work of the reads, getting to the heart of each spot effortlessly. I worked on my own to sound design and mix the spots- always with the goal of making them believably REAL, treating them just as Iwould for any of the ad agency clients I mix for regularly.

Congratulations on your very REAL reel, Holly. I know your agents will put it to good use.
