“I’m so happy that I chose her!”
Kristina of Latour de Force Productions was recommended to me by an actor friend and I’m so happy that I chose her! Not only is her work affordable, but I’ve gone to her a couple times now for my acting reel and have had great responses to it both times. She worked with me to create a beautifully simple product that highlights my best clips.

“Some of the splicing she did was genius!”
The reel she put together for me certainly got me a lot of auditions.  Some of the splicing Kristina did was genius! When I have something to add to my reel, I will certainly contact her again.
– Judy Golden

“I cannot imagine working with anyone else.”
Kristina Latour is the best! I’ve created a reel with her, updated it three times and I’ve trusted her judgment implicitly. She is spot on, quick and professional. I cannot imagine working with anyone else.
-Allyce Beasley, Actress

“She is my absolute first choice.”
When I have a project that requires video editing, no matter how complex, she is my absolute first choice. Kristina has a terrific eye, great attention to detail, and is relentless when it comes to getting something right.
-Doug Ramsdell

I feel that working with Kristina at Latour de Force was the best choice I could have made. She was able to track down copies of my episodics and edit my scenes. She kept in close contact while she made the reel, showing me several drafts and taking my suggestions (I had very few…she had thought of everything in advance) to heart.
The final product came out amazing!! I received many compliments on it from industry people, and my agent even said that it was a great reel job and would be very helpful for him in submitting me.

Working with Kristina had been instrumental in my booking work and keeping my agents happy. I just booked a NY Lottery Commercial after redoing my reel with Kristina! She is a great collaborator and really knows how to get the pacing of the reel perfectly timed.

Kristina really took the time to get to know me, which was reflected in her choices to recommend for my reel – she was collaborative and flexible, and I really felt there was a process involved in arriving at using the right clips, in the right order — couldn’t have been happier with her responsive and professional guidance – best of all I’m getting results, and thrilled that “Concurrence”, a short film I booked a major role in, is showing at Cannes this month! Thanks Kristina!
