Well the Reel Scene really delivers on what it promises !! . A week on now from completing the the 6 day Event . lessons and experiences are still sinking in. I love the very strategic way the 6 days is planned out to challenge you, by simulating all types of conditions and scenarios that can happen in the industry . Which develops a new found confidence as an actor. I love how the real scene do not try to shove a certain methodology down your throat but instead bring in different actors and directors with all types of styles and approaches to the craft but ultimately all get the same results . Allowing you to find what works for you . The intensive 6days has reinforced old lessons or forgotten ones and thought me the practical application of these tools and approaches on set ” How to act naturally in artificial environments “ . As well as an overall understanding of the big picture of the industry and how it works in reality .You can see the amount of planning and effort that goes on behind the scenes to make this all possible . A big thats to Alex ,Nicola and Jen and the whole Reel Scene family .

All I can say is mind-blowing! The Reel Scene Event was intensive, exciting, hard work (in all the right ways!), rewarding and a huge learning experience. Film shoots with professional actors and directors, real-life auditions with some of the best casting directors in the country, tuition in acting methods from industry professionals, professional head shots and fab support from a great team (Alex, Nicola and Jen), it had it all! All 14 of us on the course enjoyed ourselves immensely, supported each other throughout and formed new friendships. To top it all off, we performed our dramatic pieces at the final day Showcase in front of industry producers, directors, actors and casting agents, giving each of us amazing exposure and potential opportunities. My aim was to kick-start a professional acting career and this was the perfect way to do that. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to hone their acting skills, learn new ones and get exposure to the industry to sign up to The Event! Well done Alex, Nicola, Jen and team!

I had an incredible 6 days completing the Reel Scene course called The Event. I got the opportunity to be taught by and network with top industry professionals and work alongside amazing people who I have become great friends with. I was provided with all the tools I need to become a professional actor and I have learnt so much in a short time. The team at the Reel Scene are incredibly friendly, supportive and encouraging. They work so hard and really care about their students.
13:18 02 Aug 19
The Event at the Reel Scene really is an extraordinary experience. I don’t think there is a course quite like it. You come away with so many amazing things and not just headshots and a showreel (which are superb) but also friends for life and entry into a fabulous support network of industry professionals who all want each other to succeed 🙂
13:01 02 Aug 19
I had the most incredible week, completing The Event. The course provided me with the necessary tools and guidance to kickstart my career. Alex, Nicola and the entire team at The Reel Scene filled me with encouragement and support, that helped guide me in the right direction to take on this industry. It was full of amazing opportunities and I met the most inspiring people:)
09:03 02 Aug 19
The Event really is THE EVENT. I have learnt so much, not from well versed teachers, but from some of the best industry professionals willing to share their experience and expertise. In just a matter of days I know my tools have been sharpened; I've made some great new friends; watched the group develop and know that from now on The Reel Scene is there to support me. Don't think you can ask for more than that - and its only been a week!
20:11 31 Jul 19
Reel Scene caters for everybody. Coaches are top line, supportive and will be critical, but positively.I had been away from Acting for 42 years, came back with Reel Scene and was easily persuaded that I was not a square peg in a round hole. Several workshops, THE FANTASTIC EVENT, THE COACHING FROM THE BRILLIANT DAVID SCHAAL, SHOBU KAPOOR, MANPREET BAMBRA, MANPREET BACHU, STEVE NORTH.PLUS THE BACK UP AND ENCOURAGEMENT OF ALEX, DEBS AND JEN. NOW , TWO AND A HALF YEARS, FOURTEEN FILMS LATER, THREE WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY MYSELF AND A FOURTH NINETY MINUTE FEATURE IN PRODUCTION. NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE SUPPORT, HELP, TUITION ,DRIVE AND SELF BELIEF THAT I GAINED FROM REEL SCENE. UNBELIEVEABLE, BUT ABSOLUTELY TRUE!
23:41 03 Feb 19
After completing ‘The Event’, I can honestly say that The Reel Scene are an incredible company. Alex, Nicola and the rest of The Reel Scene team have gone above and beyond to create a professional experience that is truly reflective of the industry. I signed up to gain more of an understanding in this field and further my career and I have come out of it feeling very fulfilled and very supported by the team and my fellow course members. I’d recommend to anyone!
17:21 30 Jan 19
I had the best week with the Reel Scene (The Event). I don't know of many courses that provide you with many tools to kick start your acting career. The knowledge and experience you gain is invaluable, and everyone is so friendly and supportive. And I have made so many good friends! I just wish I'd known about them earlier. What an amazing week! Couldn't recommend them enough!
15:31 30 Jan 19
I Had an amazing week at The Reel Scene Event! Couldn't have asked for better staff who all became my friends. We got to work with great guest actors/agents/casting directors and had a very good group of actors that made my experience well worth the money! I Learned so much during these six days, and if you're an actor who wants to kick start your career I can absolutely recommend going to The Reel Scene Event. Make sure you're ready, because it's intense! Most important, it's SO MUCH FUN! Thank you Alex & Nicola, can't wait to come back!
00:18 30 Jan 19
Great family run business and they really do make you feel at home and part of the family. Not many places have the same feel good factor. I just completed a week intensive course which was well worth it and the things you learn about the industry alongside the industry pros such as actors directors etc who come along to teach the classes and conduct auditions are priceless. So glad I have been a part of this journey and have found some friends for life. The Reel Scene gives you a great chance to connect to the industry and get exposure with real expectations. Also a massive shout to Alex and Nichola keep up the great work. Not to mention the other guys behind the scene.
20:01 27 Jan 19
The Reel Scene humans are all so lovely and supportive! It's quality training and they give you a good feel for the industry and I'm excited to be involved more with them!
13:32 10 Jan 19
Amazing, friendly team at the Reel Scene. They really take their time to get to know you and in turn want to help you achieve your career goals. Opening doors into the industry that will help you progress further and always wanting to keep up to date with your journey.
14:11 09 Jan 19
Have had a great experience working with The Reel Scene on their 3 month part time course. In such a short time I feel I have learned so much not only about acting, but also about how to best set myself up for success in this business. You work with industry professionals who don't sell you on a dream, but work with you in order to improve skill, ability, confidence and knowledge. Couldn't recommend enough!
22:07 05 Nov 18
I am very new to acting but I am so happy and grateful that I have met the team from the Reel Scene. They made my dream of being an actress come true by showing me that I don't necessarily need to attend drama school to be a good actress. Their workshops focus on all the essential tools for actors and during the week long event you can gain all the experiences professional actors need. Additionally, I have so far met so many incredible people, ranging from well known actors to agents, directors and producers. Alex, Debs and Jen are lovely and so supportive and I have had the best time during the events with the other participants who I now call my 'acting family'. I will definitely stay in touch with all of them and I appreciate the love and support from them. I can't wait for my next acting experience, thank you Alex for this wonderful journey!!!
18:39 16 Oct 18
Brilliant connectivity and friendliness within the whole course and community.
19:35 02 Oct 18
Second day of The Event, my head is bulging with information. I am so chuffed to have signed up for this, and can’t wait for the next few days. They have a great team who are always available if we need help on any of the aspects of the industry .
20:32 26 Sep 18
I was excited when I won a workshop with Steve North via StarNow. I received a lot of tip and advice, and I had a lot of fun being part if it. My plan now is to get involved in their courses and learn more.
10:29 08 Jun 18
Been working with the reel scene for a few months now and the training they provide is always fresh with the plethora of directors/agents/actors they have coming onto their courses. Not just an ‘acting school’, there is so much valuable knowledge they have about the industry and about breaking into the industry for anyone who’s looking to start out!!
21:04 09 Mar 18
The Workshop in London on 8th of March was brilliant! Bravo!
20:50 06 Mar 18
I am delighted to have a won via Starnow an acting workshop with The Reel Scene, and a very well known Actor Manpreet.8th March 2018 6.00pm -9.00pm in Central London.These opportunities are rare, so if your a member of Starnow, then I highly recommended you apply when you next see The Reel Scene advertise.I will also be enrolling on the part-time course during the summer too. I have since began the Reel Scene acting and drama school. One Year Professional Screen Acting. Steve North and Lucas Young, are a teacher/director/DOP/editor. The course is intensive at one weekend per calendar month. So far, I've learnt his to remember line's, Miesner, Stan The Man, continuity, emotional memory and sense memory. Working with a different student each Sunday and filming is great. You take on board everything you've learnt over all previous weeks. You get your script in time to learn uour line's. I highly recommend this course to actor's out there who work during the week. Thank you Reel Scene. ����
13:59 31 Oct 17
Did the "How to Stand Out at a Casting Workshop" last week. Really great, practical and useful workshop, and Alex super professional and inclusive. Loads of feedback including video material, made this workshop a Stand Out session!
08:13 22 Oct 17
Alex is an excellent and patient teacher, highly recommend his method.
17:08 18 Aug 17
I was lucky enough to come across the Reel Scene course as it allows you to reinvent yourself as an actor and learn how to master your own self tapes into getting auditions and the industry.

I attended a workshop and founded it very enjoyable and useful.They were so nice, professional, and really cared about giving you feedback and answering every question. You can definitely tell when someone is passioned about what they do and they truly are.I recommend it 200% 🙂
21:21 19 Jul 17
I did a workshop with them today and it was really interesting and helpfull. They are very professional and they give you the chance to ask every question and teach you a lot of important things who might seem small but are actually so important. Everybody got individual feedback and they took their time for each student. So I definitely want to do more with them in the future.
20:58 19 Jul 17
I attended an evening workshop with Alex and Manpreet Bachu. It was really informative and great fun - found it extremely useful as I'm an aspiring actor looking for more screen work and auditions/agents. Thanks for a great evening! X
08:52 29 Jun 17
Came all the way to London from the U.S. to join this class, back home everyone thinks they're better than everyone else and I came to push myself as I'm incredibly shy. Everyone made me feel comfortable and I'm happy to have met some old and new friends and there's nothing I recommend more than the reel scene ! �
19:28 28 Jun 17
I done the Asa Butterfield masterclass which was absolutely amazing. The masterclass was well put together and The Reel Scene team was wonderful and so kind and friendly. I met some great and lovely people during the masterclass and I learnt so much during the 3 days. Asa himself is honest and so friendly, easy to get along with, and of course so talented, he gave great advice. Charles Belleville, Steve North, James Midgley and streambox360 were amazing too, they gave great advice and assisted everyone with the knowledge they know. And of course Alex himself done amazing too. He's funny, friendly and easy to get along with. He makes the whole experience great with some funny humour which is great! Alex and Asa done wonderful. I highly recommend The Reel Scene to anyone looking into acting, regardless of experience. The Reel Scene team are friendly and you can talk to them pretty much about anything, a great bunch of people!

I had the opportunity to take a 3-day masterclass with The Reel Scene and some great talents like Asa Butterfield, Charles Belleville, James Midgley and Steve North, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Alex and the whole team were AMAZING. They were friendly and ready to help in anyway possible. We received a lot of feedback and advice from people already in the industry and learned a lot about acting and everything else you need to know to follow a career in the film world. We all had individual help from each member of the team and the opportunity to perform in front of the camera to get the full experience of a film set. Everyone was super friendly and caring. They are all very knowledgeable and ready to share with you what they know and give you all the information and advice you need to succeed in this industry. I am very thankful to have been a part of this wonderful team for a few days and look forward to working with them again in the future.Thank you The Reel Scene!

I was lucky enough to recently attend a three day Masterclass taught by the actor Asa Butterfield with actor's/director's Charles Belleville, Steve North, James Midgley and streambox360 coaching and filming us. I can't recommend every single person enough. I got to meet a whole variety of individual's with varying degrees of experience, and all of us were put at easy by the professional, friendly, and helpful atmosphere. It feels like an extended family.Alex, Deb, Jen and the whole reelscene team are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. If you need help they are there, advice they are there, constructive criticism; again, there. The Reel Scene wants you to grow and develop as an actor and this is the perfect place to flourish and perfect those skills. Book now: you won't regret it. Thank you The Reel Scene for restoring confidence in me and making me fall in love with acting all over again.
14:46 26 Jun 17
I attended a Masterclass, and the professionalism and knowledge you receive is outstanding. Everyone is very friendly, you can ask anything and you will be taken seriously regardless of what level you're at. You learn so much important knowledge and while gaining confidence in yourself. Being involved with The Reel Scene is without a doubt worth every second!

I have something for Asa . Made a present for his birthday. I really hope he likes it! �
20:42 28 Apr 17
The Reel scene is such an amazing place, full of amazing and dedicated actors to their craft. Great people to network and work in projects with. I have met amazing actors and people and am going to be creating a sitcom soon with actors that I met on the Reel Scene Event. The week long event is crazy! Its an intense time which you do so much within the week! Working with professional directors, actors and producers that have been in the industry with over 20 years experience. You honestly learn so much during this week and I would HIGHLY reccomend The Reel Scene, the events that you get on the reel scene for example the JPD masterclass and the ASA BUTTERFIELD masterclass you wont find anywhere else! Do it! Get yourself out there! Amazing opportunity right here!
15:21 24 Apr 17
what can I say? the reel scene just cares about the people who go on their courses...and thats hard to come by with acting courses...the help and support doesn't end when the event is over. Best decision I ever made and well worth the investment.
08:33 24 Apr 17
The Reel Scene event is something I will never forget! It's a week filled with laughter, great company and a lot of encouragement. Not only have I gained professional help and guidance but also a family. Everyone I've worked with including Alex Fidelski, guest actors and directors and those participating in the event have been the most supportive people I know! Anyway who is serious about acting and wants to start their career THIS is the place to be! Join the Reel Scene family! �
22:08 19 Mar 17
Fantastic company and a brilliant workshop. Really genuine and honest session with amazing people and great lessons learned. Completely recommend!
20:29 13 Mar 17
I went to a couple of Reel Scene workshops and even Masterclass event, and the first thing that comes to mind when they start is that it's different from other productions, not only in aproach but also in their attitude to us, they have a really friendly crew and a very warm ambiance. The most important thing is they build connections with actors and directors and everything else, they build a family.
17:00 13 Mar 17
I absolutely loved the workshop yesterday! Nice meeting Alex and Jennifer. Brilliant pair and full of laughter and professional shown by both of them. I hope to make my future with these guys one day! They also taught me confidence, script roles and everything else! Amazing! Would recommend to these guys to go to! ��
17:57 12 Mar 17
Just finished a 3hr session with these guys. A thoroughly inspiring and welcoming atmosphere. Good work.
14:30 22 Nov 16
“The Reel Scene, is a fantastic course that lets actors experience the industry, working on set, (understand how life on set works!), audition to agents, ending the course with a showcase, its a intensive drama school! The key is the networking element and working alongside working actors, agents and directors. Thats why I enjoy working with The Reel Scene, its great to give back and share my journey with upcoming, new talent!” A course for actors by actors!” Hakeem Kae Kazim!

The Reel Scene was definitely one of my best and favorite thing in my life! Such a good environment, amazing people and the director, Alex Fidelski is brilliant! He takes care of all of the students, helping to brake their walls and be brave enough to think outside the box! Moreover, meeting the industry professionals was incredible and you can't even imagine how much you can learn within a week from them! Even from conversation that seems simple!! GUYS! Get your notepad ready! Because once you are in there, all you wanna do is recording every sentences, thoughts, ideas! The knowledge this course gives you is outstanding! It is worth every single penny!
14:59 11 Aug 16
Fantastic company!! Alex is very professional and very genuine, and cares about the success of actors! Extensive knowledge and great contacts within the industry. Alex knows the ins and outs of how to approach to acting industry. Cant recommend The Reel Scene enough!
10:51 09 Aug 16
The Reel Scene course is one I would recommend to anyone who is committed in making acting their career. I went into the course with great excitement but also with a little bit of trepidation - the unknown is always daunting. However, Alex's encouragement and the friendly atmosphere you find yourself in with like minded people is something that is indescribable that gets you through the week.Throughout the week we worked with industry professionals who imparted their expertise and knowledge most generously, which in a way was a humbling experience. It was an amazing week, a great experience and I've come out of it with a true realisation of the path I want to take.My favourite moment was performing in front of the agents - although nerve wrecking, it was uplifting! Thank you Reel Scene - Thank you Alex. I bless the day I met you and was introduced to Reel Scene!
13:36 08 Aug 16
Thank you The Reel Scene for the most amazing week! I learnt so much, surrounded by talented and professional people. I will definitely join again on future events!
10:49 08 Aug 16
I have really enjoyed my time with the reel scene. The week is jam packed full of lots of things to get your teeth into and it gives you a real insight into life as a professional actor. I met so many inspirational coaches - these are people who are in the industry right now and have a wealth of knowledge. They really want to see you reach your potential and getting personal feedback from them was like gold dust! Each one comes with their unique perspective on the craft and the business of acting. Your fellow reel scene actors are so supportive and make you smile even when you are a bag of nerves! My favourite day was working at Camberwell film studios. I had a reel script, a reel crew, a reel set and needless to say, a reel experience that I won't forget any time soon! Thank you to Alex who makes it all happen and supports you before, during and after the course. I'm excited about what the future now holds! #reelscene
14:41 07 Aug 16
The Reel Scene is an amazing machine that cares about each individual, bringing a big range of industry professionals to analyze, coach and train you, putting you on the right direction, no matter which level or goal you have. Also, the director of The Reel Scene, Alex Fidelski, looks after the students, making everyone feel comfortable and a member of a big family, and he is continuously looking for the best studios and professionals to work with and provide us the best actor tools and material.Definitely for me it has been the perfect choice in my acting career, as a Reel Scene graduate, I now have clear the next steps and goals in my acting career.
14:38 07 Aug 16
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!

At the reel scene, going to workshops and finishing the August event has just been by far the greatest step I've taken in life especially being the youngest here it has been an amazing experience I honestly didn't know how well my skills of acting can improve in such short time I would do this again and again because what inspired me mostly was the other actors you get to work with and others who have succeeded in life because of the reel scene I would recommend this to anyone and I mean anyone especially if acting is your passion because you will find a family of actors here at the reel scene because it is by far the only place I want to be at so if u don't already do it make sure you book your place now for the next workshop

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!!
17:03 06 Apr 16
So I'm a week and a half past completing The Reel Scene experience, I am still smiling from ear to ear and bursting with excitement from the potential opening of doors that The Reel Scene has created for me. As an actor/actress you really couldn't ask for a better course to prepare you for the journey you are about to embark upon as you enter the world of performance. The week is packed full of experiences and opportunities for each and every student.. You will learn how to understand a script, to learn lines, how to perfect your audition technique, what agents are looking for, how to work with co-stars, how to behave on set and much much more! While you are absorbing all of this information you will be surrounded by a team of truly wonderful people, I found every individual that Alex carefully picked to guide us through the week to be talented, genuine and so very humble. To say that you become part of The Reel Scene family is no exaggeration and in a week where you are thrown in the deep end on a number of occasions it is that family that helps you to swim. You will meet the most creative, inspirational and just down right beautiful people in your week at The Reel Scene... So do it! Book it! And most of all.... Enjoy it!!

The Reel Scene is the ideal event for actors wishing to find momentum in their acting career. You'll get a real sense of the intense schedule you can expect as a full-time actor. Incredible and inspiring actors are there throughout talking about their experiences, giving advice, answering all questions and helping you work on the scenes you will be handed *constantly. Now, the team of crew and participating actors that Alex puts together will just make your heart sing - everyone is passionate, supportive and hard-working which makes for a KICK-ASS creative buzz. Highlight of my week was being on a professional set with some ace creatives and morning coffees with the outstanding human beings that formed our lil' gang. Till next time.
07:40 31 Mar 16
This course was fantastic, energetic and fun. Reel Scene prepared us for the entertainment industry. We met casting director and agents. There was an opportunity to network with people in this business.
16:00 30 Mar 16
Simply put, I hadn't felt as sad as I did when the Reel Scene event came to an end on Day 6 in a while, and I think Alex underestimated how much I meant it when I said I never wanted the week to end (lol). But with that, comes a feeling of excitement for the future that The Reel Scene has prepared me for and put me on the path towards. Asides from the innumerable benefits the week gave us all, it was an incredibly enjoyable experience too. With how well structured the week was, you could see the collective progression of the group and that of the attendees individually session after session, day after day. From the get go, there is constant feedback and help from the mentors and fellow attendees alike, so you'll know your areas of improvement and strengths. Many a time we were thrown in the deep end and pretty much forced to learn to swim, and this works perfectly with the week being as intensive as it is as it forces you to grow and improve. Whether it was scene study, the opportunity to audition for potential agent representation, filming on a green screen set, the wisdom you'd gain alone when talking to well established actors & directors, or the pro head shots, (and much more), I couldn't have asked for more out of this week. It will be my pleasure to watch The Reel Scene continue to take the acting world by storm, because it will!
10:36 25 Mar 16
Currently on day 5 of 6 at the Reel Scene acting event, and loving every minute of it! Alex prepared an excellent line-up of activities for the week, including discussions with high profile actors, directors, casting directors and agents, giving us photo shoot and showreel footage, and working with us on our CVs . We've worked on some fantastic scenes on camera, on green-screen set and as live performances, and have had excellent support all the way through. A wealth of experience and advice has been given to us which will be invaluable as we pursue our acting ambitions. The group of actors is fantastic too, and it's incredible how quickly we formed into a trusting, friendly and supportive family.I'm really looking forward to presenting our showcase performance tomorrow, and I have no doubt that the entire Reel Scene event will be vital to me in the future.
18:35 28 Feb 16
Full program and passionate people. "Quality's remembered long after price forgotten " Excellent value for money.
19:20 02 Nov 15
I've done over 10 screen acting workshops with Channel 4 and BBC. I can honestly say The Reel Scene has been the best one I have been. The Reel Scene gives you practical lessons and training which is then applied to scripts in a real life set environment. It 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 anyone!
17:42 02 Nov 15
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.
15:28 29 Oct 15
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE CAME ACROSS YET!
