Many of our Actor clients have been requesting that we start offering "Actor Slates" (aka Living Headshots) services. Breakdown Services, the company that lists actor's profiles, headshots, and agency information, has introduced a new feature, called a SlateShot, that allows actors to attach one 7-second video to each of their headshot photos. This allows the actor to bring their headshot to life and the casting director to get a deeper sense of who the actor really is.
We've been experimenting in our studio and almost have the lighting worked out so that we can shoot the Living Headshot videos any time of day, but right now we are only allowing bookings between 8AM-1PM as we have an 18ft x 15ft window which acts as a giant light box. We will have the studio lighting, so you can book anytime of day, worked out in the next week or so.
Although designed for actors, many of our real estate agents, insurance reps, and professionals have been booking Living Headshot packages already. As we refine the technique, we will be offering a variety of add-ons and upgrades. Currently we are offering 1 Headshot & 1 Actor Slate for $100, 2 Headshots & 2 Actor Slates for $135, and 5 Headshots & 5 Actor Slates for $205.
