Scene Library/Showreel Creation

Duration: Inquire for more info

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 that demonstrates your full potential and versatility as an actor. I’ll provide you with scenes to suit your ‘brand’ that showcase your abilities, and coach you through various changes to ensure your best acting work is on your showreel.

I will personally coach 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.

General

Sometimes you just need a coach…

Creating a role requires a lot of work and focus and every so often, we need a little help.

Professional Actors
Working with a coach can take the pressure off you and onto the work. I enjoy working with actors to create work that audiences will love and actors love to perform.

Whether you are starting out or a working actor there are always aspects of your craft to work on and build. I work with many techniques and fit the right one to the actor I’m working with.

We’ll discover the elements that create character, how to learn lines, what to analyse in a script to turn it into a living breathing person and much more. It’s a lot of fun!

Each 90 minutes session is yours. If have something specific you want to work on, we can do it. If you would like me to run the session and create an individual experience for you, we can do that too.

I have an amazing script analysis technique I use for Self-Tests that people love. It keeps me honest, so I don’t miss something important.

You’ll learn tricks and techniques from some of the most influential acting teachers of our time – Uta Hagen, Chubbuck, Larry Moss, Eric Morris and Mark Travis – and understand how to apply them in real time. Whether you are auditioning for a lead or support, an acting school, for a commercial, one line in a feature, a guest in a TV show or a lead role, I will give you the techniques you need to create a routine for yourself that works every time, enabling you to truly showcase your abilities.
