Preparing a show reel is a time consuming and often expensive process. Sometimes after all the effort and cost there is dissatisfaction with the end product.

Why not seek professional advice before you spend too much money?

Make sure you are heading in the right direction before you commit to any major expense.

How to do this?

  1. Prepare a rough edit of your intended content on a VHS tape or DVD. If you have cheap access to editing equipment use that - if not you can do this on two home VCR’s. Don’t worry about the quality of the edits. Just make sure you include all the scenes and visuals (still and moving) that you intend to use.
  2. Send an email to The Rehearsal Room explaining which level of assessment you require (see below) and include your -
      • Name and address
      • Phone and Fax number
      • Method of payment
  3. Add to your email a brief list of any other information you may think it is necessary for The Rehearsal Room to know. (For example captions you intend to use etc.)
  4. CHECK THAT YOU have included the details of your name, a contact postal address, your phone and/or FAX numbers.

  5. CLICK HERE TO PAY ONLINE - Basic ($28AU); Intermediate ($45AU); Superior ($83AU) Or you can pay be direct bank transfer (request details in your email) or by including a cheque or money order with your VHS or DVD. (See below for details.)
  6. Print a copy of your email and include it with your your videotape/DVD and..
  7. Post the video tape and form to:-

The Rehearsal Room
18 Clendon Road,
Australia 3143

Assessment Options Assessments will be e-mailed to you immediately the assessment process is completed. Fees are based on the assumption that the viewing time of your tape is not longer than 10 minutes. Your Show Reel actually does not need to be any longer than that. To keep costs low videotapes will not be returned.
