For those unfamiliar with film sets, we will cover the basics with you. That includes the technical aspects of acting on screen, the technology used that actors need to be aware of, and an understanding of terminology used on set.
We will block and rehearse the scenes for your shoot, in preparation for shooting on location. You will also receive a call sheet for the next day.
Your call sheet will specify the day’s itinerary. The shoot will be in a Central London location.

You will then perform your pre-rehearsed scenes, which will be live-edited. Our shoot and post-production processes are industry standard. Just have a look at our Instagram to see what our shoots are like!
Due to the professional standard of the actor showreels shoot, it is essential that you have acting training, and are serious about becoming an actor. The Cinematic actor showreels shoot does not teach you how to act, but is designed to highlight your existing ability and have professionally made content to display your skills.
If you do not quite feel ready for this, you should have a look at the Reel Scene Event, where we specialise in helping you to enhance your acting skills.
We’re happy for you to bring them along. Each shoot has four places available, so you can bring up to three friends. All spaces are however charged at the same rate.
All actors are welcome, including those who work in theatre. Our shoot is not about the platform you act on, but is designed to showcase your diversity as an artist. For those unfamiliar with the process of working on a film set will be fully briefed before the shoot to make sure you’re completely comfortable.

Honestly, everything. Unless their set-up is the same as a genuine television or film shoot. Our crew are all working professionals in the industry. Our hardware and post-production workflow is industry standard. We pride ourselves on the quality of our offering, and are confident we won’t let you down.
We encourage you to really research other companies out there and compare what they do to what we do.
Of course, we’re proud of the content we film and produce. The quality we achieve is there for you to see.
Because we know what it can be like as a budding actor trying to make it, and how difficult gaining exposure can be. It’s that classic ‘catch-22’ situation: you need to have a great showreel to get anywhere, but to have a great showreel you need to have worked on a professional film or television shoot. You can’t win.
But we want you to. Set yourself apart from others, and show the industry you’re serious about acting.
Invest in us, because we invest in you.
This is a unique opportunity for committed actors to produce genuinely cinematic promotional content for their portfolios. If you have it, flaunt it in style.
