When assessing an actor's suitability for their project, a Casting Director's first port of call is the actor's showreel. We at Rotten Park Road, having cast and produced Internationally distributed films, know how vital a decent showreel is - it is always the first thing we look at.
We are fully aware that the most important thing about a showreel is showing you can act! If a casting director doesn't believe the performance, then you're not going to get the audition, no matter how beautifully shot or edited your showreel is.
As industry professionals, we can help you to achieve a convincing, engaging performance that lets your audience know that you are a professional and that if they employ you, they are in safe hands, as well as producing a great image and high quality sound.
Our team comprises of acting agents, casting professionals, an award-winning writer, an Internationally recognised director and professional experience on both sides of the camera.
⌲ Create a scene(s) that suit you and play to your strengths. (We can either provide you with a script or you can provide your own).
⌲ Film your scene(s), producing them in the same way we produce our own professional work that is made for major International platforms, to ensure you give your best performance.
⌲ Edit your scene(s) together to create a high quality showreel.

A scene can either be written just for yourself as a monologue or as a duologue, which can often mean you can split the cost of a filmed scene with a peer. We can, where possible, give you a hand if you're stuck for an actor to play against, but are more than happy for you to arrange this.
1 scene takes on average 3-4 hours to shoot, with 3 scenes normally taking place over 2 days. Once your footage is in the can, we then edit your footage together and send a first draft for you to give feedback on. We then redraft according to you/ your agent's needs.
We are based in Leek, in the Staffordshire Moorlands, and we prefer to shoot locally, within the North Staffordshire/Staffordshire Moorlands area.
