You are involved in the editing process as much as you want to be. You will be kept up to speed on the progress of your showreel throughout the edit, so you don’t have to worry.

We can add music to your showreel. If however the track is a commercial track (has been released on the market to buy) then you are responsible for acquiring the license to use that track in your showreel.

Yes, you can! Make sure you include them with your acting material when you post it to us.

Of course! It’s best that you do, otherwise how will casting directors be able to book you?

Definitely! In fact, it’s one of the things we strongly recommend.

Your digital showreel can be provided in whatever format you desire, but our preference for quality is as an H2664.mp4 file.

We export your voicereel in whatever format you choose, most usually this is a .wav or an mp3 file.

Yes! Using your showreel on social network and video sharing websites is great for self-promotion. Go on, get your name out there!

Production Services

Filming

We use the latest in DSLR Cameras and Rode Microphones to give you the best looking and sounding footage.

Unfortunately, scene writing is not one of the services we currently offer.

Of course! We’ll have a chat with you about the type of actors you are looking for, and your budget, and then present you with a list of choices. You can contact the actors directly to discuss their availability, or leave it up to us – it’s your choice!

We do indeed! Ranging from our 1 man “run and gun” to however many crew are required for each project.

Yes, all of our filming services require a non-refundable deposit.

We will plan for this before the day, and try to have alternate (indoor!) locations planned should the need arise, however we understand that this isn’t always possible.

In these cases, we will reschedule the shoot, at no additional cost (minus any non-refundable fees such as for locations, actors and crew).

That depends. If the rehearsals are done on the day of the shoot, then no, we expect this to form a part of the day, and usually spend your rehearsal time setting up our equipment and planning exactly how to get the best shots of your scenes.

If you wish us to attend an additional day prior to the shoot, this will be chargeable at our standard day rate. Contact us for more information.

All deposits are non-returnable. Should you cancel within two weeks of the filming dates, there will be no additional charge.Cancelations with less than two weeks notice will face an additional cost, and cancellations within 48 hours will require the full project cost to be paid.

All of this will be discussed when we quote you for the project, so you know exactly what our policies are and can agree to them accordingly.

Post Production

You are involved as much as you want to be involved. You can either sit back and wait for the results or be with us every step of the way.

This depends entirely on the length of the track itself and how complex it. If the video includes visual effects, this will add time to the project.

We do a basic service of colour correction. We can correct images for example, if the white balance was incorrect for the shot, then this is something we can easily fix. We can also give films a basic cinematic colour grade.

With our DLSR workflow we now use Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

You can indeed! A chair is waiting for you right now!

Not a problem, just say the word and we’ll change what you want!

We can add music to your production. If however the track you want to use is a commercial track (has been released on the market to buy) then you are responsible for acquiring the license to use that track in your project. For more information click here.
