The Rising Star

The Rising Star Showreel Package is our most popular option for actors looking to film two bespoke scenes shot in cinema-style with a professional crew. If you have experience and training, but lack high-quality content that matches your casting type then this is the ideal opportunity for you to get behind the camera and film scenes devised by you and a director.

How It Works

Once a booking has been made, we will arrange an initial meeting with the Director at Pinewood Studios or via Skype if required. 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, and will work alongside you and the director for private rehearsals on the day of filming.

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. 

Hair & Make-Up

During the shoot, powder and basic screen make-up is provided to reduce shine and skin blemish. Our team will also monitor hair continuity throughout filming. Actors Studio can also supply (at an additional cost) a professional hair & make-up artist on set, who will offer a stylistic approach according to your scripts and work with you before filming each scene.
