Need an Industry standard showreel?

At Showreels@Zoetrope we now offer an amazing workshop with Zoetrope Director Lee Bolton over 3 days at our studios. For ALL actors.

For many years, Elerby Studios

has produced hundreds of showreels for Actors across the UK with great success.  Showing scenes that our actors have full control of from beginning to end - to show Casting Directors the best of what actors can deliver.

'Get you in the door'

Many Actors we have worked with over the years have successfully gained the roles they wanted. Appearing on Major TV, Adverts, Idents and Films across the world such as Coronation Street, Hollyoaks, Emmerdale, Peaky Blinders, and Mcdonalds.

Our showreels have also gained our actors those all important agents across the UK.

Getting it right

With our reels we pride ourselves in working with our clients to get it right. So in the first instance, the first click, the first frames.. the reel stands out.

Our workshops at Zoetrope are the next step of what we have learnt over the years. 

We feel with our 6 actor workshop we can

deliver superb showreels.

This is the next step.

The 3 days

For the workshops with Director Lee Bolton the 3 days are split in separate modules.

Actors meet us at the studio on a one to one basis to discuss what they require from the 3 days. Scripts for the showreels can either be provided by Elerby Studios or be brought in.

This will be locked on your first meeting.

day 1

Showreel Discussion

Recent showreels of Elerby Studios are shown in our cinema. The scenes are broken down and shown how the scene was developed. This includes raw footage to the final edit.

Script breakdown

from Script to screen we show how the camera is used against the script and how the camera is used and why.

Camera awareness

short scenes are directed and performed with the cameras and replayed back in the Cinema. Performance is discussed and feedback given.

The 3 days

For the workshops with Director Lee Bolton the 3 days are split in separate modules.

Actors meet us at the studio on a one to one basis to discuss what they require from the 3 days. Scripts for the showreels can either be provided by Elerby Studios or be brought in.

This will be locked on your first meeting 

and delivered well before the first day.

Each workshop is for 6 actors only - and the 6 actors work together with film crew to deliver 3 scenes per actors for their reel over the 3 days.

day 1

Showreel Discussion

Recent showreels of Elerby Studios are shown in our cinema. The scenes are broken down and shown how the scene was developed. This includes raw footage to the final edit.

Script breakdown

Submitted scripts are chosen for filming over the next 2 days.

Camera awareness

short scenes are directed and performed with the cameras and replayed back in the Cinema. Performance is discussed and feedback given.

Day 2 

Scripts / Blocking

Scripts for the showreels are performed with direction given.

Rehearsals

Actors are given rehearsal time in the studios to work on the scenes with direction.

First filming block

Actors film the first initial scenes with playback in the Cinema.

Day 3 

Second filming block

Second set of filming the remaining scenes with playback in the Cinema.

It's a wrap

You have your new showreel in the can!

What happens next?

Each actor will receive the following week after filming the initial edit on our server - edited, graded and cleaned up ready to go.

feedback can be left on the edit if any changes are required - it is your showreel after all and your promotional tool.

Every actor gets the full Industry showreel broadcast edit, the full scenes unedited before the showreel edit and any footage performed in front of camera over the 3 days.

and the cost?

For the full 3 days, full industry footage with full scenes and any footage filmed the cost is only £340 all in.

We can pass this low cost package to our actors because we film so many of them - and our actors return for our other services from Elerby Studios and Zoetrope.

For each workshop we only want to accommodate 6 actors. We feel this is a great way to work rather than a large group and develop the showreels much better.

We would need a £50 deposit to book the days in (non refundable) and the full payment before the 1st day.
