So what comes next?

You've read this far so you're probably keen to know what happens when you enquire with us.

STEP 1

STRATEGY CALL & CASTING

Once you've chosen a package, you'll be re-directed to a sign up page (no payment required) and our team will get in touch to organise a call to get to know you, your acting style and career goals. If you need a hand deciding on a package, we can help with that too!

STEP 2

SHOWREEL PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT

We'll set up your account and obtain a monetary deposit  from you (taken off the final amount of the package) and begin pre-production for your showreel shoot!

STEP 3

STEP 4

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What kind of scene should I choose?

How do I find a script?

There are an incredible amount of sources on the internet and in local bookshops to find excellent scenes and scripts that provide the perfect translation onto screen. When you sign up with us, we'll send you links to the best resources we know for finding quality scenes.

We recommend going with a film, tv show or theatre scene that you connect deeply with and admire. Make sure it suits your performance style, range and is realistic to shoot - no Gravity scenes guys, there's only one Sandra Bullock!

Do I need to bring my own scene partner?

How do I find one?

Yes you will need to provide your own scene partner(s) for your scenes unless you've purchased a casting element (which we're happy to discuss) to your showreel package.

We have a giant network of actors that we've either collaborated with or hired who would love to come back as scene partners. If you want to venture out on your own, there are a stack of Facebook community groups that you can reach out to and will be sure to have A LOT of responses. We can give you the names of our favourite groups once you sign up!

How long does it take to receive my showreel?

You will receive your draft reel within 5 business days of shooting. 
If you're happy with it great! We will do the final mix and grade and send it to you within another 3 business days.

If you end up wanting changes, that's totally cool too. We'll need a few business days to action your request and this timeframe will depend on the kind of changes you ask.

If my scene partner agrees, can we split the cost of the showreel?

Of course! We can even make sure you both have equal screen time at your request.

If you'd like two different versions of the same reel, this can be done, but we'll charge you the post-production fee.

What if I can't afford the showreel cost all at once?

We feel you.

We have interest-free payment plans just for this reason and will create a customised pay-back suited to your needs and situation. We feel strongly that no-one should have to miss out on pursuing their dreams due to financial hardship and we hope this payment method can help those of you who need it.
