Real hands-on experience
The One Week Intensive Acting Course is a real hands-on experience to give you a taste of what life is like for a professional actor.
Each day on the intensive acting course is different to the last, and that includes the industry professionals we bring in.
We want you to get used to working with different people, and getting different insights into types of acting training, and a new perspective on scenes including how you approach each script.
Creativity is key
At The Reel Scene we know that every individual is different, and we want you to really own that! Creativity is key! Agents don’t want to see 100 people do an audition exactly same way.
They want that 1 in 100 person that stands out and does something different to everyone else. Being in the creative acting environment is essential to developing as an actor.
We want you to be surrounded by industry professionals throughout the week.
Practical tools included
The One Week Intensive Acting Course will also supply you with the practical tools you need to become a professional actor. We’ll provide you with professional headshots, which are the very first thing a casting director or an agent will look at when picking suitable candidates for roles or to sign.
We will also provide you with high-quality dramatic and comedic showreel footage filmed by a professional film crew in a real film studio, directed by accomplished actor and director James Midgley (Coronation Street, Ackley Bridge).
A showreel is the second make-it-or-break-it tool that you will be asked to present to agents and casting directors. The Reel Scene Intensive Acting Course will make sure you walk away with your own professional personalised acting showreel scenes that will make you a standout for a role. Not only do you get a great acting showreel, you’ll also be given a professional acting credit towards your name as one of your showreel scenes will be filmed for a new TV comedy pilot!

“I was at a real cross-road with my career and needed support on how to progress. The Reel Scene One-to-one session enabled me to go through my material and gain the insight and direction I needed from an industry specialist. They even helped me to plan my showreel and gave advice on how to gain agent representation!”
“I’ve done over 10 screen acting workshops including Channel 4 and BBC. I can honestly say The Reel Scene has been the best one yet. The Reel Scene gives you practical lessons and training which is then applied to scripts on a real-life set environment. Because of Alex’s connections you get to showcase what you have learned to established agents and casting directors. You come out the course with a professional show-reel and head-shots too; the two essential tools you need to launch a career. To me, that is what I call effective and why I recommend the Reel Scene to everyone!”
“I had an amazing experience with The Reel Scene at their March course – it was crammed full of incredible opportunities and definitely worth the investment. I feel really lucky to not only have made some lifelong friends but I’ve gained a whole family of supportive actors and creatives who I can always call if I need help. Massive thanks to Alex and the team, can’t wait to see you all again soon!”
“No matter what educational background, I reckon anyone interested in getting into the industry should do a Reel Scene week. Alex really knows how to get the ball rolling with your career; he realises how important it is to work with, learn from and get seen by the right people to move forward. The Reel Scene Event has found the niche between full time education and going straight into work.”

“A really fun and amazing experience! It was relieving to meet like-minded people who wanted to achieve similar goals. I was lost as to which direction I should take before coming to the REEL scene. I didn’t just want to learn about the skills of acting but I wanted to know how to get into the acting industry. After the 6 day course I definitely know which direction I should take. Thank you all!”
