Actor Showreels

Introduction to Actor Showreels

JGW Photography now offers the two most essential pieces of weaponary for your markerting arsenal.

Your actor headshot comes first, but every actor needs a professionally produced showreel.  Many agencies will only accept actors with a showreel produced by an industry specialist.  Casting directors also expect you to have an up to date showreel that clearly shows your character type as an actor.

Using the experience gained from watching hundreds of actor showreels and extensive industry research, you can be sure that your showreel will show your strengths as an actor while being in line with current industry trends. 

You will have the opportunity to have your input at every stage so that the finished product is exactly as you expect.  Naturally, showreels will also be ready to upload to Spotlight and will follow any submission requirements.

Firstly, footage from your films will need to be sent in.  Our most favoured methods by actors are to use Dropbox or Wetransfer.  Neither of these services make any charge.  Alternatively just send in your DVDs. 

Your showreel is discussed and what you wish to show for your actor type and you can highlight any particular clips you would like included from the footage you provide.  This discussion can happen over the phone, or arrange an appointment so we can meet face to face.

Your video is created using top of the range, industry standard software ensuring a highly professional video you can show to your agent and to casting directors and be proud.  A preview video is created for your feedback to allow you make any suggestions before your final video is set.

Flexibility is key and you can rest assured that going the extra mile is what we are all about.

Completed videos are uploaded to Vimeo and to Youtube.  You can use your own accounts or share videos directly from JGW Photography, whichever you find easiest.

Typically your video is ready for you to view within a couple of days.

Actor Showreel Reviews

I had been after a new showreel for some months now, after recieving new and more appropriate footage to use than was in my previous one. So very glad I finally chose JGW to edit it! So much care and attention to detail was taken, after discussions to make absolutely clear what it was I was looking for, as well as any preffered scenes I may have. The advice I recieved was well thought out, and from a highly knowledgable standpoint. I couldn't recommend JGW any higher!
