Proving your quality of work to agents and casting directors is difficult. I can teach you how to create great showreels at home to send to agents and casting directors. It’s inexpensive and very easy to do with the right guidance. Creating a demo reel can be tough – sometimes impossible – especially in the early stages of your career. Whether it’s a shortage of footage, issues tracking down footage, or the footage you have is not truly showcasing you as an actor, many actors waste a lot of time and money trying to have a reel professionally produced, however, many casting directors say they’d prefer to see your best work performed self-tape style vs a choppy showreel that focuses on production value over performance.
With my Scene Library Creation package, we will build a custom scene library for you made from 3 contrasting scenes that demonstrate your full potential and versatility as an actor. I’ll provide you with scenes to suit your ‘brand’ that showcase your abilities, and may give you some homework to ensure you’re fully prepared for the shoot which will take place in my studio in Mcdowall, Brisbane.
You’ll need to show up fully prepared, knowing your lines and understanding the character, so I can coach you and direct you to bring out your full potential. Scene libraries are becoming extremely popular and helpful in the casting process these days and are generally hosted on Vimeo so they can be presented in a clean and professional way.
Best of all, you can keep adding to your library without having to pay to have your reel edited each time.
In a digital world, self-tests are a huge part of an actor’s career. With both the quality of performance and the production being judged, it’s important to put your best tape forward, and what better way to do this than with the help of a professional casting director? My self-tape studio is set up with professional camera, audio and lighting gear that will guarantee an industry standard tape. I will coach your performance, read with you, help you choose the best take, then I’ll edit and upload it so it’s ready for submission. Quick and easy so you get your tape in on time and you can relax knowing you submitted your best work.
