FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Which showreel package is right for me?

It depends on what you have already. If you do not have any footage yet or want to create a brand new showreel from scratch, we would advise the 3 scenes. If you have some good scenes or are on a tight budget, the 2 scenes package is for you. The 1 scene package is really only for actors who want to top up their reel with a new amazing scene or show off a different skill set.

Where are you based?

We are London based and this is where most of our filming occurs. We are happy to travel if necessary however, we charge travel expense for non-London locations.

Are you filming showreels on weekends?

Yes, weekend slots are available for an additional £50 per scene.

Do you provide scene partners?

We are happy to source you suitable scene partners however, it might cost an additional fee. We would advise you to advertise this opportunity in Facebook groups like ‘Actors UK’ or ‘The Hustle!’. Actors are constantly looking to update their showreel so you are likely to find willing scene partners at no additional cost to you.

Can I split the cost if I provide my own scene partner?

Yes, absolutely. Our displayed prices are per scene, not per actor and you are welcome to bring your own scene partner.

Do I need a scene partner?

Not at all. You can have a great showreel scene on your own. There are plenty of options for a solo scene; talking to a grave or photo, speaking on the phone or to yourself in the mirror, to mention a few.

Do you have genre restrictions?

We do not have any restrictions on the genre, but the scene must be contained enough to be completed in our 4 hour time window.

Do you provide bespoke scripts for each scene, or I have got to choose from pre-written scripts?

We provide bespoke scripts for every showreel scene we produce. It will be based on your personal requirements to allow you to show your best qualities.

Can I bring my own script?

Yes, you can however, we will have to confirm that it is suitable.

Do you provide direction?

Yes, we do. When we arrive on location we will start with the blocking and rehearsals with as much  direction if required.

How much time do you allocate for filming?

Filming a showreel scene normally takes 4 hours, including set up, blocking and rehearsals.

What happens if we are running over the allocated shooting time?

Do not worry, we are not going to stop filming and leave if the allocated time has passed. However, unless the delay is directly our fault, there is a £30 per hour overtime fee to cover the holding of the crew.

What happens if it is raining on the day?

Well, this is the UK so rain is always possible. But fear not, unless the scene particularly requires dry weather, we can film in the rain. For a lot of showreel scenes, it could be a great addition.

How long after filming does it take to edit the scenes?

Unless otherwise advised, we provide the fully edited scenes on the same day with the 1 scene package, and within 1 week for the 2 and 3 scenes packages.

How many edits do you provide?

We provide one edit that is suitable to use for all actors in the scene. Our scripts are normally designed to give all cast an equal share of solo playtime, allowing them all to use the same scene.

Do you provide music for the scenes?

Yes, we do. We have a large library of free-to-use music that will be added where appropriate.

Do you provide the location?

We can provide the location, but this would likely incur additional costs to you as a result of rental fees. Therefore, we highly recommend you secure your own locations by asking friends, family, etc, as this would be more cost-effective.

Do you provide costumes and props?

No, we do not. Costumes and props will be your responsibility.

Can I reschedule or cancel my showreel filming?

Once booked we do not accept cancellations. However, we allow free reschedule of the filming date with a minimum of 2 weeks notice, or for £40 per scene rescheduling fee with up to 1 day notice.

Can I upgrade or downgrade my package once it is booked in?

Yes, you can upgrade your package, but please allow enough notice to write the additional scenes. You can also downgrade if you have to, but there is a £20 per scene fee for the downgrades.

How do I book/pay for my scenes?

For booking, we require a 25% non-refundable deposit, plus the cost of any additional services when applicable (travel expenses when we are filming outside of London, location and actor fees). The remaining balance will be due the day before your shoot, payable by bank transfer.
