FRIENDLY, PROFESSIONAL, FAST AND AFFORDABLE 

Creating my showreel with Shoe String Filming has been an absolute pleasure. I needed to film one scene and have the rest of my existing footage edited alongside my new scene. Alexandre captured exactly what I wanted from my new scene and wrote a very well written and witty script. He was prompt and professional. The filming day was well organised and well executed. The whole team were a joy to work with and therefore made it easy to relax into my performance. When I saw the scene I was very happy with the quality of the audio and visuals and the cut of the scene. All of my footage was edited into a showreel the very next day, and Alex was extremely accommodating when I asked for small changes to be made. I am very happy with my new showreel and would highly recommend Shoe String Filming to anyone who wants help creating their showreel.

GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND TO GET MOST OUT OF YOUR SCENES

Working with Alex and “Shoe String Filming” not only gave me a great showreel, but one that fitted my individual casting. With the combination of specially written scenes by Alex, and other work I had filmed, previously, Alex slices them together, creating a clear well edited showreel that would show any casting director or agent my acting skills, and where I fit in the industry. I think Alex has a amazing eye for what works in the casting world, and goes above and beyond to make sure that you are getting the most out of the scenes, and your showreel shows you in best way. I would recommend him to any actor looking for a showreel that is current, clear, and projects them incredibly well. -Emma Read 2014

He sourced the location and was happy to find actors for my scenes which completely took any pressure off me in the run up to the shoot.The shoot days were so much fun, very professional and very relaxed and Alex was fantastic in directing to get the most out of my scenes.Even after the shoot day, Alex remained in constant contact and edited and re-edited until I was completely satisfied with the end product.I would recommend any actor to go with Shoe String filming when looking to make their showreel, for me it was worth every penny. -Natalie Jacobs 2013

PROFESSIONAL FLAWLESS AND FUN!
The whole service from Shoe String Filming has been fantastic from start to finish. Alexandre listens from start to finish about all your ideas and worries and works out a helpful solution including advice about your career in general.

The Writing: Not only does Shoe String Filming write everything from scratch specifically for you, they never use it again for anyone else. It is of a quality that surpasses most short films let alone showcase scenes. Also if you don’t like, or think the script to too similar to something else you have. They are willing to “throw it out” and start again until you get the right fit.

The Production: Was professional, flawless and fun. It felt as if I was working with an old friend not someone I had never met in real life before.

The Editing: The Editing process was incredibly quick and yet again if you had any problems Shoe String Filming had no problem changing anything.

Uploading: Shoe String Filming uploaded all the scenes as well as the finished showreel to YouTube (and sent a copy of all the films to me) as well as uploading it to my Spotlight and Casting Call Pro (saving me the headache!)

Over all I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Shoe String Filming, would 100% recommend them to friends and would love to work again with them in the future.   -Natalie Hartstone 2013

FOR ALL THIS, IT’S A GREAT PRICE

Alex helped me so much with my showreel. It was easy to work with him, he understood what I wanted and tried his best to make it look as I imagined – with success. The extra points go to the talks about the show business next to editing the showreel. For all this, it’s a great price.

GREAT WORK

 Alexandre (Shoe String Filming) was extremely professional and helpful all the time during the making of my showreel. He advised on the best bits to use, discussed all my comments, replied on time & made sure I was absolutely happy with the end product.

A TRULY PROFESSIONAL SHOWREEL YOU CAN BE PROUD OF

‘I am a UK based actor with experience in mainstream TV. film and theatre. I recently had the good fortune to meet Alexandre Ross from Shoe String Filming as I was looking for a company to produce a new showreel for me. During the initial meeting with Alex we discussed my thoughts and requirements for my showreel. He had lots of good ideas, was able to highlight potential gaps in my showreel and had lots of great industry advice and also advice on marketing myself via social media etc.

He then went away and produced a bespoke scene written especially for me to fill the gaps in my showreel. When we filmed the scene a couple of weeks later, the process was very efficient, professional and friendly from start to finish. Alex also handled the editing of the scene and integrated it with some of my previous work into an excellent new showreel that I am thrilled with. Finally Alex also helped with the social media side of things, uploading my new showreel onto the internet – YouTube etc.

I cannot praise Alex highly enough. As an actor himself he knows what the industry likes to see from a showreel and how we as actors want to be protrayed. He is very approachable and knowledgable and open to ideas and suggestions. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any actor who wishes to have a truly professional showreel that they can be proud of. ‘ -Mark Murphy

 

DETAILED KNOWLEDGE

“Alexandre has a detailed knowledge of what does and doesn’t work in a showreel. His experience working as an agent gives him a solid grounding in how best to sell actors.” I am very pleased with the results.  - Felix Trench

 

MARKETING AND WRITING EXPERTISE

Alexandre Ross is an extremely talented professional. He boasts a rare mix of business acumen and creative intelligence. He is capable of taking your acting career to the next level and is truly an investment well worth it. His marketing and writing expertise will ensure your showreel acts as a professional cv and will get you work. He is also incredibly responsive and takes great care in everything he does to ensure the job is done to a high standard. This was very important for me as I am often quite busy and need someone that I can trust to get the job done well.Thank you Alexandre – we “ACED” it. :)Melissa J Woodside

SENSITIVE AND RECEPTIVE TO MY IDEAS

Shoe String Showreels provided an intelligent, professional and immediate response to my showreel editing needs. To have someone who was sensitive and receptive to my ideas for design but also skilled and experienced and professional in providing a creative response to what I needed was refreshing, reassuring and a pleasure.

It is such a relief to work with a professional who knows what he is doing, does it quickly, and charges a lean and highly competitive price for his work. Highly recommended.-  Alex Reece
