How do you get your footage from a TV show you are in for your reel? Is there a program I can buy that lets you take clips off TV or the Networks' website? It's a waste of time to call the Network, lol. I am not that computer savvy and I don't have a manager helping me so hopefully there is an easy way.
PS I have a Mac...
I have EyeTV for my mac, which lets me tape TV shows, or pretty much anything connected to its video input.
They have an array of other video capture products as well on their site.
This is exactly what we do as well.
I bought my episode on iTunes, converted the file, imported it into iMovie, chopped it up and sent it to Breakdowns the next day!
Oh goodness, I need to get tech savvy fast.
You can hire services to do this kind of thing.

Connect a hard drive to direct tv box, record on it.
I have itunes & imovie but how/what did you convert the file to in order for it to import into imovie?
Thank you for your help
An m4v video converter program. If you google it, you'll find a few options.
The good programs out there let you convert just a portion of the file, which saves a lot of time and hard drive space.
Let's say you've downloaded a one hour drama you're in ... the iTunes file is 45 minutes long. You can set up the converter to just rip & convert your scene, say from 13:45 - 15:45 ... so you'll end up with a 2 minute clip that you can import into iMovie and manipulate with the rest of your reel.
It was a lot of trial and error for me, but once I figured it out, it was smooth sailing and a fun DIY project.
Stanislav, care to share the name of any of these services? Having a hard time on google...
