  • Budget available/necessary

    • We have an in-depth discuss on this topic as we can make a lot happen, but we also help morph the scene to your budget as best we can.​

      • In this discussion, we go over the crew necessary to make your scene happen, based on your tastes, your agent requests, and your acting career goals. We facilitate payment to our crew members and ensuring we pay them as fair rates as possible, within the parameters of what you are able to do. Our crew are often the first in and last out for your scene.​

Lakefront is one-of-a-kind. The services they have to offer are not easy to come across elsewhere, and are worth the investment if you want casting directors to see you shine. The team will make you laugh and feel comfortable while also coercing fantastic acting from you. Each member offers nothing but brilliance to the table, and works efficiently and intelligently to create the best product possible. They take and give notes well and are quick to communicate. They even made adjustments after sending an initial clip to make it better! An absolute treat to work with them and I will definitely work with them in the future.

Candice Rose - Demo Scene client

The entire team at Lakefront Pictures is extremely efficient, accommodating  and professional. Each department puts their heart and soul into the production, from start to finish. As an actor, I wanted a real on-set experience to perform to the best of my ability. Lakefront Pictures afforded me that opportunity, & I am pleased to say that I got what I paid for and more. If you need a demo reel clip that looks and feels like a real life experience and you don't know where to start, consider Lakefront Pictures! You'll feel like the  star you were born to be.

Lakefront Pictures is not only a great time to work with but the high quality they produce is even greater. Happy to have come across a service like them to drive my acting career farther.
