Sizzle Reels

Bright-Eyed Media produces casting, sizzle and pitch reels (videos) for TV. These reels are for internal use only, so we can't post them here! But we do have two samples below:

We produced this talent reel for our private client, Hospitality Consultant Kate Edwards, as a way to share her vast experience in a concise and impactful way.
