How It Works

Once a booking has been made, we will arrange an initial meeting with the Director via Skype/Zoom. After a meeting discussing casting types and characters you wish to pursue, work will commence on the first draft of your scripts. Professional actors will be cast for your scenes. Co-stars will be available for Zoom rehearsals before your filming day. The day of filming will include two duologue scenes and one monologue shot in-studio.

Your Director

Taz Ayoub is an award-winning director with experience gained from over 50 projects in Film & TV. His craft of working with actors has been recognised in his projects through winning Award of Excellence for his recent short film. Now he’s giving you the opportunity to shoot a unique, bespoke cinematic showreel that demonstrates your technique on screen and opens greater opportunities to get cast. From evaluating your character types to finalising the edit, Taz is part of your showreel from beginning to end. 

What's Included?

Hair & Make-Up:

A specialist screen hair and make-up artist will be on set during the shoot, and provide a stylistic approach according to your scripts. They will typically advise two different looks for you to show contrast in your scenes, and they will maintain hair continuity between filming shots. 

Professional Co-Stars:

Two professional co-stars will be cast in your scenes. Our casting department will hand pick actors we have previous experience of working with, ensuring a comfortable environment on set. This removes the need for you to source your own actors.

Shot On RED:

Our Bespoke Showreel Packages are now shot on the latest technology from Red Digital Cinema. The A-Lister Package is filmed in Cinema-4K to capture the finest details and give your showreel a cinematic appearance. You will be given digital files compatible with online platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo to give you the best opportunity of exposing your showreel.

Colour Grade & Sound Design:

Once the edit of your scenes are locked, we will then begin work on colour grading and sound designing your scenes. The creative process of colour grading will take the raw footage from a flat state, to a vibrant cinematic piece of film according to the mood and atmosphere of your scenes. We will also craft the sound of your scene, introducing any relevant ambient noises and correction of voices.

This package is a unique experience for any actor, shooting two duologues and a monologue in a professional and friendly environment. Edited and delivered for online platforms such as Spotlight and
