who are we?

Showreels4actors is a boutique production outfit that shoots, edits, and produces high-quality showreels for Australian actors. We always try to keep costs to a minimum, fully appreciating the traditionally compromised finances of most performers. At the same time we endeavour to achieve the best results possible for each and every project we work on, so that what you pay for you will definitely get.

industry advice

As part of the service, and with over 25 years of experience in the industry, we can also advise newer actors (and not-so-new) about which agents to go for (and which ones to avoid!) what's happening in the industry at any given time, how to go about getting auditions, how the TV and Film casting process works - anything in fact that actors need to know in order to advance themselves in this tough profession.

personal note from the director

" A professional actor myself, I bring over twenty five years experience working in television and film to my roles as showreel cinematographer, editor & producer. What this means in practice is that I know what it's like to be under the microscope having every personal nuance and detail scrutinised and judged, and by this token have a pretty good handle on how to minimize selfconsiousness and discomfort in sessions so that we can all enjoy the process. But don't just take my word for it...
"Incredibly personable & professional, Barry gets the job done on the filming side of things so you can relax and give a good performance. He gets back to you about every detail of the showreel & gives really great direction. I'm so happy I was referred to Barry as I now have something I'm really proud of "
