Another month of success, as we saw the much-anticipated return of two eagerly-awaited television series, the political sci-fi drama THE EXPANSE and children’s classic THE WORST WITCH, each starring clients in regular series roles.
Extremely happy to say that my television casting seminar with casting director Kristina Erdely at the Surviving Actors convention was a resounding success; tickets had sold out well in advance, and the room was packed full. Many thanks to Kristina and the audience for a fantastic seminar and an enthusiastic Q&A session…so much so that the Q&As continued well after the session had officially finished. The convention itself was the most highly-attended expo yet, with a constant footfall & long queues at the Showreel Editing stand, and it was lovely to speak with so many actors and other industry leaders.
Delighted to announce that I’ll be teaming up with top tv casting director Kristina Erdely (The Royals, Blood Drive) to give a seminar on showreels & how to get cast in TV, at the Surviving Actors acting convention in London on 4th February 2017… don’t miss out, book your tickets now!
There are so many TV series being commissioned right now, so how do you get the job? How is it different to all the other castings you’ve been to? And how can you ensure you are the perfect person to do the job and walk in to an already formed cast?
Kristina and Anthony will be covering questions around showreels and how you can ensure that your showreel will be seen and taken seriously by casting directors. What do you actually need in there and how can you make sure that your showreel is a cut above the rest?!
November sadly saw the passing of client & multi-talented actor Andrew Sachs. Although perhaps best known as Manuel in Fawlty Towers, Andrew also appeared in many different productions playing a wide variety of characters; from Albert Einstein in Nova, to Ramsay in Coronation Street. I edited a number of showreels for Andrew; he was a true gentleman, and a multi-talented performer, whose work has entertained millions – he will be missed. RIP.
October sadly saw the passing of client & “Dad’s Army” co-creator & comedy legend Jimmy Perry.
Otherwise, yet another month of successes from our many clients, welcoming new clients as well as happy to see many familiar faces returning for updates to their reels.

Another month of successes at Showreel Editing. As well as expanding our client base to welcome new clients both in the US and the UK, we’ve been excited to see multiple returning clients whose previous reels we’ve edited have helped them get more work – and more importantly the right type of work- it’s been fantastic to see clients increase their profile by getting fantastic roles in high-profile productions.
On top of this, we’ve been delighted to oversee the relaunch of the official website for legendary comedian Benny Hill, and brand new official social media channels for Benny Hill, featuring interesting facts about Benny, and loads of hilarious clips from The Benny Hill Show – come & join the community at www.facebook.com/bennyhillofficial and www.twitter.com/TheBennyHill!
