Showreel Contents

The recording should show you in close up and in one full shot. The camera should be static. Setting can be anywhere as long as it is easy to see and hear you.

The recording needs to comprise of:

 

1. An introduction about you. Who you are, why you want to enter this course. (Max 2 minutes).

2. A memorized contemporary piece (monologue) written after 1960 and no more than two minutes in duration. Speeches can be chosen from film scripts. Classical texts are acceptable, but unless you are experienced in them, it is wise not to choose them. (Max 2 minutes).

3. An alternative memorized presentation (to illustrate a different range). This could be a poem/funny story/movement with words/film/TV exerpt. (Max 2 minutes).

 

Showreel Tips:

1.     Choose texts which you are comfortable with.

2.     Stick to the prescribed time limit.

3.     Choose pieces with an emotional journey or a character arc.

4.      Show a contrast in mood in your pieces (one comedy, one drama, etc.)

5.     Do not try to imitate the original (unless you are satirizing)

6.     Make sure the texts are not wildly unsuitable to your age

7.     Remember it's  not only about the reading of the text, it is also about characterization.
