Claire Jones-and-Stephanie GrayA showreel is a visual CV that helps directors, producers and casting directors see you, and the quality of your work. If you don’t have any showreel or filmed material to ‘show’ your skills, then it can hinder your chances of getting TV and film acting roles, no matter how good you are.

These showreel sessions are an opportunity to record showreel monologues quickly and cheaply. You can try out new on-camera techniques and get essential instruction from a working director. This will help you to develop your on-camera skills in a comfortable professional environment.

So, these showreel and self-tape sessions are useful:

  • For a particular role, you’re auditioning for
  • To begin showing off your skills on screen
  • To try out new characters/styles to pin-point your branding
  • Get some honest feedback about technique and characterisation from a professional director
  • Learn how to self-tape for future video auditions

Unlike our other sessions, there is very little theory and discussion, just 3 hours for the group to record their best work on camera. You’ll be working with a professional director, who will help and advise on each piece. If you need a complete showreel quickly, then take a look at our Showreel In a Day service.

    I learned more in a showreel session with Mark than I have in decades of watching, reading and studying acting.

    Having attended several of Mark’s classes I’ve found them to be very informative and have picked up lots of great tips along the way. Mark has a good knowledge of the industry and his style is very relaxed and friendly, so if you are nervous about anything you won’t be for long! If you’ve been thinking about booking onto one of Mark’s classes all I can say is just go for it, you won’t regret it.

    Having done three showreel workshops this year with Mark at The Telsen Studios in Aston, Birmingham I really highly recommend his services to anyone at any level. His workshops are friendly and relaxed. Mark instantly puts everyone at ease – so important when being filmed in front of other actors you may or may not know. He gives first class direction which is easy to take on board whilst he films a monologue of your choice. Looking forward to another session of relaxed and informal learning with Mark in the near future as I leave each session with more confidence and knowledge. So pleased with my results. Mark really is a creative at the top of his industry
