You might be thinking “why do I need a showreel?”
Well, a quality showreel can really enhance your chances at getting auditions and castings. The real question is, can you afford not to have one?
Casting directors get huge amounts of CVs for every role they are looking for – you need something to make yours stand out, and a link to a showreel is a great way to do that. After all, a piece of paper can’t really show someone your acting ability – it’s far better for them to be able to watch you acting, to get a better idea of your skills.
If you are somewhat new to screen acting, and don’t have any existing material, getting a showreel can give you practice acting in front of a camera, helping you gain valuable confidence. Alternatively, if you have acted in existing productions, your showreel is your chance to showcase your previous work and it provides a visual CV to help you gain work.
How do I get an acting showreel?
The Reel Room specialises in creating showreels for actors. A professional acting showreel to showcase your talent can help you gain work, representation and reputation. In order to help you promote yourself online, all of our showreels come on a personalised DVD which includes versions that you can upload online.
The Reel Room professionally edits your existing material to create your showreel. This is sent to you on a personalised DVD, along with versions suitable for Youtube or Vimeo. We can also upload to your Casting Call Pro profile.
Getting an acting showreel couldn’t be simpler. Just send us your material on DVD or USB and we will create a showreel which will be a maximum of five minutes long. You can choose which scene snippets are included, or let us choose for you – it’s entirely up to you! We can add photographs and music, as well as a “montage of looks” to ensure maximum exposure of your acting styles and expressions.
Our prices are very competitive, and we offer 10% off all showreel products for student actors. Visit our packages page to find out exactly what we have to offer you. That being said, the Reel Room understands that not everybody wants the same thing. If you are looking for something more bespoke than the packages we have available, please contact us to discuss your showreel requirements.
