BEHIND THE LENS
My name is Will Austin. I'm a London-based actor and videographer/director, offering a unique and affordable
self-taping and showreel service to all those who need more material or to put themselves on tape for an agent
or casting director.
Having worked as an actor on various movies and television shows, including BBC's Casualty, Doctor Who, The Coronor, Doctors, Babylon, 24:Live Another Day, Mission Impossible:Rogue Nation and more, I know what it's like to be in front of the lens.
CHECK OUT MY REEL BELOW
Sending out audition tapes to potential agents and casting directors is common practice and is becoming
an increasingly important part of the audition process.
As I'm sure you're aware, there are other self-taping services out there, but unfortunately sometimes the high
prices charged don't necessarily result in a satisfactory product. I will always work with you until we get exactly
what you're happy with and make your self-tape look and sound beautiful.
I've been putting actors on tape now over the last 5 years and have a great deal of experience in
achieving the perfect self-tape. The quality and standard of self-tapes is getting higher and higher, so you
need to make sure yours stands out from the crowd; filming on a smartphone or iPad is just fine, but sometimes it's worth putting in that extra effort for that perfect self-tape
Showreel scenes are another essential part of an actors portfolio!
Being able to see what you can do as an actor is vital in today's casting process. But if you've not had
professional screen work, how can you show people what you're capable of?
That's where we step in.
We endeavour to create the best-looking, most professional-sounding
showreel scenes in London - Just check out our work as evidence!
Our team work using industry standard video and audio
equipment to make sure you get that
Professional-looking audition tapes edited using industry standard software and sent to you and your agent/casting director the same day.
You can send me the script beforehand
This gives me the chance to go through the script that you'll be doing so that I can help get the best from you on the day.
Last minute appointments for same-day tapes
Often I will be available to film your tape on the same day - so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
A professional edit
I pride myself in making your tapes look and sound as good as possible, so a full colour grade and sound edit is applied to your self-tape to make it stand out from the crowd!
Usually your tape will need to be sent before 6pm the same day. All self tapes are editied and delivered to you or your agent within 45 minutes after we complete the session.

High in quality
We aim to produce scenes that really showcase your acting skills as well as delivering a product that looks professional and cinematic. Our goal - always - is to create scenes that don't look like they have simply been made for the purpose of a showreel.
Fully edited showreel
We offer fully edited showreels from footage that we create together and/or from existing material that you may already have.
We respond quickly to all email enquiries and we're are onboard to sort locations, scene choices and/or additional actors for your scenes, should you need them.
I pride myself in my editing skills and my ability to chose the best takes/angles to tell a story. If, however, you feel that there may be an improvement from a re-edit (a certain section that you feel might be better as a close-up, for example) then I am happy to revisit the scene and do my best to make any changes. However, I cannot always guarantee that all changes can be achieved.
I aim to have any scene completed and sent to you within 7 - 14 days after filming.
If you require a faster edit, then I do offer a fast-track service that varies in price range depending on how quickly it needs to be done.
