A successful showreel or demo reel is one that helps actors get more work. Using the right clips in the right way maximizes your chances. Anthony Holmes has 20 years experience as a specialist editor of acting reels, working with actors, agents and casting directors in the USA, Canada, Australia and the UK. A good specialist editor knows what works, and Anthony has helped to develop the tv and film careers of many successful actors, from young actors just starting out, to BAFTA-winning, Emmy-winning and Academy Award-nominated actors. Many clients have progressed to take series regular and lead roles in tv and major roles in Academy Award-winning films.
We help actors at all stages of their career, from young actors and recent graduates, to established and award-winning talent with hundreds of screen credits.
