If you have experience and training, but lack quality content that matches your casting type then this is the ideal opportunity for you to commence constructing a showreel, or to simply create another contrasting scene for your existing reel.
Shot on location under the direction of award winning Television Director Scott Major, your scene will then be edited, colour graded and professionally sound mixed by Director of Photography Jordan Bond. In the weeks leading up to your pre-production session, you will work with Artistic Director Craig McMahon, who will help guide you with selecting that perfect scene that is going to showcase you as your most sellable self/type.
