  • As an actor, things can get seriously expensive. You can't get a job if you don't have decent headshots, a load of experience, and a fantastic showreel.

  • But Showreels can cost an absolute fortune!! These prices are just the initial scenes alone...

  • If you actually want the showreel to look good and professional, there are additional costs for that.  There's even extra costs if you want another actor in the scene!

  • Honestly, doing your showreel this way means you're looking at about £1000, and even then you can't guarantee that it will come out how you want, or that it will get you work.

    So, the best way is to make your own.

  • There are loads of sites out there such as StarNow (my personal favourite) and Casting Call Pro, which all let you search through jobs and apply. A lot of these jobs are unpaid, but they'll provide you with the footage at the end if it. Best of all, they don't necessarily need a showreel to apply!

  • You can also shoot scenes yourself! With a basic camera and an improvised stand (I tend to make towers out of small tables) you can perform monologues and scenes however and wherever you want, absolutely free! Then, with a little editing, you can play with the shots, add in memories, thoughts or dreams, and make it look very professional.

  • Most computers have free editing software built in; I have a MacBook Pro so I use iMovie. Here you can put all your footage together and build your own showreel from scratch! It takes a lot more work, but a long the way you're learning, getting experience and contacts, and saving up to £1000!! Totally worth it.
