Actor Showreels

Impress Agents and Casting Directors

It's well known that a showreel is one of the most valuable tools that you can have as an actor.  Having the right showreel will help you to market yourself and will get you noticed by agents and casting professionals.  


Here at Toprock Productions, we believe in working collaboratively with our actors to bring out the best in their performances.  An important step in this is finding your point of difference to help you stand out from the crowd!


With over 20 years acting experience, director, Taysha McFarland will guide and coach you during your session to deliver an authentic portrayal of your character.  Meanwhile, our dedicated crew will be working hard behind the scenes to create high quality cinematic footage that will look as if it could be from a film.  


We provide a "full set" experience which includes:


  • Having your makeup professionally done


  • Correct lighting of the scene


  • Sound crew, making sure your voice is clear and audible


  • Rehearsal time, blocking and direction


  • Filmed on location, not in a studio


  • Multiple angles, so you're not just a floating head!


  • All edited, colour graded, sound mixed and digitally delivered to you with a fast turn around time.


This means you'll be able to get your 1-3min showreel out to casting directors and agents as soon as possible!


What you'll need to do to prepare for your shoot day:


  • Find the right scene/monologue with a character you'd like to portray.  (We can help)


  • Find the right location that suits the scene.  (We can help)


  • Find a scene partner. (We can help)


  • Learn your script


  • Take time to develop your character


  • Be prepared on shoot day


Don't feel like you're alone on this, we're here to help you.  If you're having trouble with location scouting, finding the right script or scene partner we'd be more than happy to help you out.


With past actors going on to secure acting agents with our showreels, gaining more auditions and even coming back to work on our own productions, there is definitely value in working with an active film production company.  These are just some of the reasons why Toprock Productions is one of the bests in delivering Melbourne Showreels!


So, don't put your acting career on hold any longer, get in contact with us today to find out how we can help you get cast in your dream role!

FAQ

Can I write my own Script?

You most certainly can!  A couple of our actors have written their own scripts for characters they haven't played before or ones they would love to play.  


We also enjoy turning them into mini short films, so you'll get your edited showreel plus the full 2-3min scene.

Do I need to find another actor?

If you're having trouble finding an actor to play along side you in a scene, we can always help find the right actor for you from our database.  We are also happy to run casting calls for you too!


Another good way to find actors are asking fellow acting buddies you've done classes with or worked with in the past.

Can I watch past Showreels?

You sure can!  We will post up most of our showreel scenes onto our Youtube Page.  This means that there's more of a chance of a casting director finding you as your showreel will be exposed to our audiences too.

Testimonials

Working with the Toprock Productions Team on my showreel was an unbelievably fun and relaxed experience!


Taysha and Tristan create a professional yet fun environment, where you have the freedom to play and create what you want while feeling supported. I love how I gave them ideas and they ran with them & found the perfect shooting locations, put in the time to help me choose scripts and talked through my characters with me. Also Nicholson is one of the most talented DOP’s I have ever had the pleasure of working with and he has an amazing eye for colour & composition, so you know the footage will be beautiful.


All in all, I don’t think there is a crew I trust or enjoy working with more and I can’t recommend them enough for showreel scenes. Also there’s free Krispy Kremes…doesn’t get any better than that. Thanks guys!

I definitely recommend the incredible team from TopRock Productions to shoot a high quality and seriously professional showreel. Taysha is so lovely and responsive to deal with, organising everything was a breeze! She has so much professional advice in the preparation stages and does a phenomenal job directing and producing on set! The entire crew on set (Tristan, Nicholson, Sam, Xavier and Tessa) were just as amazing on both a professional and a personal level! Everyone was respectful, easy to work with, efficient, productive, dedicated, knowledgeable in their area of expertise, funny and comfortable to work with. 


Everyone worked so hard to keep things on schedule which I appreciated so much, the set was left absolutely spotless and having a MUA was a really nice touch! I am super impressed with the quality of the final product and I feel very confident in knowing that I am wholeheartedly putting my best foot forward when applying for roles with my new showreel! Thankyou so much to amazing team at TopRock Productions!

Toprock provided a fun and professional environment for filming my showreel scenes, Taysha has a fantastic eye for detail and did everything possible to ensure we had a great shooting location, all props, and great scripts going into the shoot. The whole filming crew were professional and supportive and made shooting a breeze! Would definitely recommend toprock for showreel scenes to anyone looking. Thanks for a great day and awesome footage!

I was blown away by how cheerful, energetic and enthusiastic this production team is! I approached them to shoot at incredibly short notice and they took it on anyway - solving all of the issues I had and getting it back to me by the incredibly tight deadline. Taysha was such a fantastic producer, her advice and ideas were so helpful and her attention to detail meant I could relax and focus on the acting. I am so grateful for the fantastic work put in by her and by all the members of the team, thank you!
