Sizzle Reels

Still from project sizzle reel used with permission of screenwriter client


The Sizzle Reel has become a powerful tool for film and television professionals.

An effective Sizzle Reel successfully introduces your project in an emotionally powerful and visually exciting way to producers, executives, agents, managers, investors, and talent.  It allows them to see and feel the story - enriching the experience of reading your script and comprehensively understanding the awesome potential of your project being produced. It will inspire them to take action.

A Sizzle Reel is similar in format and running time to a theatrical trailer - approximately two minutes.  In most cases, due to budget and logistics, the reel is produced incorporating found footage, a mix of graphic materials, both original and previously created and emotionally compelling music, either originally scored or open sourced. 

What We Do

We carefully study your script and in close consultation with you, we identify the heart and core strengths of your project.

We will then draft the script and produce a dynamic visual concept that will create an engaging video that perfectly captures the emotion, tone, and characters of your story that demonstrates your unique vision.

Standard Elements Included in Your Project's Sizzle Reel:

Key Art

Project Title 

Log Line/Hook





Time Period

Emotional Feel

Art Direction

Visual References




Casting Inspiration




If you have additional elements you believe are key to your project, we will incorporate those as well.

Our mission is to produce for you a Sizzle Reel that expressly illustrates your project's vision and goals.

Delivered in whatever file format best serves you.
