Why do I need a show reel?
Well my answers simple, how can you sell your talent and capabilities to an agent or a casting director by confrontation alone. The greater majority of casting directors are very busy people, plus they already have a specific style of character in their minds simply from reading the writers brief, so, a show reel allows your abilities and acting techniques to be paraded almost instantly.

A showreel is a serious major investment. It’s a mobile CV, and when show reels are created correctly they can be a great tool in your arsenal of capabilities.

The television and film industry has become a highly competitive industry and going into any job ill prepared can lead to a short life in the business and invariably disaster.
A show reel will help you put your mark on the stage, screen or television.
Can I stay ahead of technology?
Technology is moving so fast and virtually everyone I know carries a mobile phone around in their pocket. The greater majority of casting directors and theatrical agents tend to carry an iPad or some similar smart device about their
person or in their briefcase, thus the state of casting is changing rapidly, an agent doesn’t need to see the actor
in the flesh anymore, their show reel can be screened anywhere on a smart device, in the car, in the street,
sat on the lavatory, you name, it can be watched.
So, a well-made show reel can sort the job for you
there and then.
What is there left to consider?
