You’ve been cast to star in a production. After the production is completed you would really like to get a copy of your work, but sometimes it’s not that easy for the production company to release your footage.
If/when, you finally receive enough footage for a reel, you find that each production company uses their preferred artistic decision with color correction (warm or cold colors), sound, and the overall look and feel. It’s not as simple to weave together a fluid reel from different productions.
It is an important fact that actors need a strong acting reel to showcase their talent. Acting reels allow the actor a benefit to submit samples of their work to a casting director along with their headshot. Most talent agencies prefer an acting reel because it makes their job easier when trying to market their talent for castings.
The creation of the “Reel Deal” is to help actors who have not been in many productions or have trouble getting copies of their work.
The “Reel Deal” includes:
Kasha Fauscett grew up in the small town of Carson City, NV, but did not pursue her acting career until she moved to Colorado as a teenager. She knew it was her destiny to continue on this path when she booked a commercial for a local radio station (KOSI 101) without training or representation.
Kasha booked the lead role in the short film "White Room," where she won Honorable Mention for Best Dramatic Performance at the Denver Underground Film Festival in 2009.
Kasha and her husband Troy Fauscett formed "Galloping Metal Productions LLC" to co-create a high concept TV series Inner Dimension along with many other compelling stories.
Kasha has a knack for mentoring actors and started working for “The Academy of the Arts” where she taught kid/teen/adult acting classes. She continued her passion by teaching through her production company GMP.
Along with teaching, she works at Comcast NBC as a manager. Out of 800 people, Kasha was selected to be flown to New York City NBC Studios to for "Know Your Value" to be mentored by industry professionals like Mika Brzezinski (co-host of MSNBC) and Joe Scarborough (co-host of MSNBC) of the Morning Joe Show.
Kasha is the Co-Producer and actress for feature film “The Earth Is Flat” which is based on a true story. The feature film has won two "Best Feature" awards, and "Best Drama" Short.
"My son, Ethan, age 12 has thrived under the tutelage of Kasha. She has elevated his skills through lessons on acting and giving insight into what casting directors are looking for. Ethan has become a better actor and more confident because Kasha took the time to get to know Ethan’s strengths and personality and built upon his natural traits. As a direct result of Kasha’s unwavering support of my son, Ethan was recently signed with Marbles Lincoln Talent. In sum, if your child is looking for an acting coach, Kasha has all tools necessary to expand his or her talent, advocate on his or her behalf, and help network. She has the soul of a true actor and coach."

"My son Gunnar has been traveling back and forth from Denver to LA for the past five years to work in the talent industry and has been very successful in the game. Thanks to the numerous individuals we have met along the way. Kasha Fauscett is an inspiring coach! She understands the business inside out! Especially the audition process, which is key to staying in the game. She was able to assist my son in a last minute taped audition for an upcoming pilot. Kasha reassured his confidence and choice selection. We were very pleased about the finished product and excited to have someone to count on for future assistance. She is truly talented and has a remarkable way of connecting with life's most precious assets... our children."

"I highly recommend GMP acting classes. My daughter has been taking acting lessons for the past few months from GMP, and she looks forward to them every week. Kasha is very knowledgeable about teaching acting, and she also has a lot of first hand experience. The classes are very hands-on, and students work on many different acting techniques and experiences. Kasha also offers many other resources, such as photographers, casting references and advice for navigating the world of acting."
