On almost every film and video project I work on, actors ask me to get clips of their work for their reels. Actors are wise to constantly update their reels—or at least have the material on hand. However, it seems like there is a lot of misunderstanding on both sides about when and how clips can be provided. So I thought it might help actors and producers to clarify this. Also, I do have a secret way to pretty much ensure you’ll get all the clips you reasonably need.
