The Reel Scene
Make Acting Your Profession
Acting and Drama Courses Based In London
We teach actors everything they need to know about the film and television industry!
The Reel Scene acting school was founded by actor and acting coach Alex Fidelski (BA Hons). Alex has mentored and developed the skills of actors of all skill ranges, many of whom now have successful careers in the industry.
“The Reel Scene gives aspiring actors everything they need to make the most of their career”
The Reel Scene gives you the training and experience you need to succeed in the entertainment industry. London-based, we work with industry professionals including working directors, screenwriters and actors (like Asa Butterfield, Frank Harper, Steve North, David Schaal and many more) to make sure you have the best possible learning environment.
We also help you with those all-important industry network connections. We want to help you to make acting your profession.
The Reel Scene doesn’t just offer classes in acting in London. We can help you produce professional headshots, teach you about the audition process and creating great self-tapes, and we keep your acting skills fresh with drop-in classes and workshops based in London.
Through our connections, we believe that if you have the determination and drive to break into this competitive industry, then we can put you in the position to launch your London acting career.
“Let’s get real: Becoming an actor and then being an actor isn’t all luvvies and red carpets. The truth is the road is a testing one.
So you’ll need the right tools and the resilience to travel it.That’s where The Reel Scene comes in.
Our courses are rigorous (and fun!) giving you exactly what you need make it out there – the theory, the practice, pro equipment, inspiring tutors, gigabytes of footage, strong reels and more.
We won’t spit you out with just a ‘good luck!’ either, you become part of our network of fellow actors for continued support, and staying informed, involved and productive in your new career.”
