What an amazing 6 days! Everyone was friendly, positive and helpful. Small group of 14 people so everyone got personalised feedback. Alex and Nicola were really supportive and the actors and directors who worked with us each day were fantastic, a really unique experience. I learnt so much and felt my skills were developed and honed during the event.

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!!!

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!

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.

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! �

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

This is a big statement but I really believe Alex and the team have set the bench mark for the modern day acting school. The acting teachers and directors are all current working professionals in the industry and rather than classes filled with “pretending to be a tree” and “feeling the music with your toes” they get straight to the point of teaching the skills required to be a working screen actor. I started off with the 3 month course which gave a solid introduction to a range of acting techniques and exercises. I’m now half way through the year course which has given me the chance to study the techniques in more depth and put everything I’ve learnt to test in front of a camera on set with a director each month and working on short film. I’ve learnt so much in a relatively short space of time and feel confident that when I’ve finished the course armed with a professional showreel and headshots I’ll be good go!

As a veteran of dozens of feature film and television projects, I have been privileged to work with some amazing people over the years, and Alex and the team at The Reel Scene are first rate. I participated not as an actor, but as a writer looking to hone my ability to create dynamic characters, seeking to delve more deeply into the headspace of how a skilled actor brings to life the lines on a page. The instruction and exercises were surprisingly relatable and effective, and the course consistently exceeded my expectations. The instructors not only clearly understood their craft, but were highly effective communicators at helping us connect viscerally with the concepts and immediately put them into practice. They were also extremely warm and genuine people, ridiculously fun, and cultivated an environment that felt safe and supportive. The feedback process was both encouraging and intentional in providing clear direction for improvement. I cannot recommend The Reel Scene more highly.

The best decision you could possibly make would be to take a course at the Reel Scene. Whether it’s the week, 3 month or year long course, you will gain so much. You get amazing feedback as the classes are usually small. I have made good friends on the 3 month course and learned more than i thought i would. Highly, highly recommend.

A professional acting school full of talented people who love doing their job. I attended the one year course travelling each month from Italy and it was the best decision ever, totally worth it!

Sad that the year course is ending, I’ve had the most incredible past year with The Reel Scene and I hope I can do more of their courses/workshops! Not only did they provide us with intense training from professionals, they gave us the right amount of support and love we needed! I couldn’t recommend anyone else! Nothing beats having the most kindhearted souls aswell as people who want to push you and see you succeed! And they’re always up for a laugh too! Makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed, and so much better about shooting scenes. 💓💓

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!

You’re probably browsing these google reviews because you feel what The Reel Scene is offering you is too good to be true right? (Did the same myself) I did the 6 Day Intensive and the Asa Butterfield Masterclass and the things I have been able to take away with me in a few days in comparison to what I studied for 3 years has been completely INVALUABLE! These guys are invested in YOU as a person and a performer. The range of opportunities that have come my way since joining marvellous community have been a real step forward in my career and I can’t thank the entire team enough for that.Everything they offer is of the highest quality and the people they work with even more so. They throw you into the thick of a working professional environment and it could not be more fulfilling!If you think this is a place that takes you money and then they are done with you like all the others please note this company, is the exception. Not only have I been able to surround myself with like minded creative people and create work for myself, I’ve made genuine bonds. Also professional contacts that otherwise would not have been available to me and that’s what it’s all about, am I right?

I started the reel scene with apprehension and a wanting to learn. I have finished my 3 months course learning invaluable lessons that I will need in my acting career and reel scene has completely blown my expectations away. Whether you are already experienced and wanting to learn more or are just flirting with the idea of acting, the Reel Scene is a family that are genuine and caring and want the best for you. Opportunitues not to be missed. Best decision I made all year.

Alex and the team at The Reel Scene are warm, friendly and supportive and can help you develop your acting career no matter what skill level you’re currently at. They offer a range of courses, can create headshots, and even have a masterclass with Asa Butterfield. I attended the Reel Scene Event in January 2018 and it was one of the most transformative experiences of my life. I can’t recommend these guys highly enough.

I’ve been so lucky to be a student at the Reel Scene. I’ve been taught by some big name actors including David Schaal from The Inbetweeners and Asa Butterfield. I’ve seen my acting improve and become involved in . a number of student and professional projects, and now I’m a member of a genuine, caring family of actors and coaches who I can call on whenever I need them. I have an agent, headshots, a showreel and an acting future. I can’t thank Alex and the team enough!

3 days of Asa’s masterclass is one of my best experiences in London!! We were spending a lot of time together, play concentrated games, practice lines, dig deep into our emotions, rehearsal and shooting. Those were extremely fascinating!! And the most remarkable part was I’ve made plenty of talented friends which is really precious for me. On a scale of one to ten… can I say 12? 😉

After initially attending an impressive taster session with The Reel Scene, I subsequently signed up to their 3 month programme to gain a fuller understanding of acting theory as well hone my acting skills.I am now nearing the end of this programme and I can, without any reservations, say that the experience has been invaluable. Every session is led by highly experienced and enthusiastic professional actors who have a deep and broad understanding of the industry along with its many facets and hurdles. Each lesson positively encourages you to work beyond what you believe you are capable of in a comfortable and supportive environment. From my 3 month programme I have garnered a wealth of knowledge on areas such as Stanislavski acting theory, how to deliver an effective cold read, audition technique, acting to camera, Meisner acting and much more.Whilst on this course I have also landed 2 feature film roles alongside actors such as Asa Butterfield and Andy Lucas which have been unforgettable milestones in my acting career.The team who run the workshops behind the scenes, Alex and Nicola, are always professional and approachable and keep you up to date with the course schedules, as well as providing valuable industry insights and acting advice of their own.Following this 3 month programme, I will be signing up to attend the 1 week intensive course and I am truly excited to be able to continue my career journey with The Reel Scene.

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.
