A good agent will only sign an actor once they’ve had a chance to see them work, to see how they work with other actors and crew, and have reviewed their showreel and headshots. Agents from RS Talent regularly attend workshops and classes (we are always looking for new talent) and may recommend further training if you show promise. That’s why it’s great to come to these workshops, meet people, make friends and make yourself known! Many of our graduates leave our courses and go on to gain representation.
As well as the team from the Reel Scene and talent agency RS Talent, we bring in special guests to run each of the workshops. The choice of guest will depend on their availability or work commitments. In many cases, we work with David Schaal (Jay’s Dad on The Inbetweeners, Glyn from The Office, and a veteran actor from many other shows) or Steve North (Doctor Who, Holby City, Eastenders, London’s Burning). All of our coaches actually work in the industry. You can see our full list of coaches on the coaches page.
We’ll post course dates and times here. Workshops are held at our studio in Pimlico, London.
All information will be provided before your course starts, however in general you need to bring: a costume for your shoot if applicable, appropriate clothing for your headshots, pad, pen, printed scripts. We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing. Bring a bottle of water!
We welcome English-speaking actors of all ages and levels of experience, from anywhere in the world! If you’re under 16, you’ll need the approval of your parent or guardian, but we welcome parents to come along and watch the classes. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to know more.
A taster workshop is a gentle and fun introduction to acting! Under the guidance of a professional, working industry actor like David Schaal from The Inbetweeners or Steve North from Doctor Who, you’ll go through some warmup exercises and improv and then be given a scene to develop and perform with your classmates. We’ll give you feedback, answer your questions about acting and the industry, and you’ll get to meet and talk to agents from RS Talent and the Reel Scene team!
