Showreel Production Service
An opportunity to have your showreel produced by one of factual TV’s most successful executive producers – Fiona Pitcher.
Your showreel is the first thing most potential producers / commissioners / casting agents see of you. It’s scientifically proven that we make judgments as we watch someone within 30 seconds, or less. The smallest thing can put us off. Your potential clients look at taster tapes or “sizzlers’ for programme ideas all the time, many of them created to high production standards. Yet many showreels are created to a “one size fits all” formula that rarely demonstrates the unique qualities of the individual.
All of us have a unique set of skills and expertise that we can offer as a presenter, and the trick is to make sure your showreel demonstrates those. Otherwise it’s all too easy to be overlooked.
Our showreel production service offers you the chance to work with one of factual TV’s most successful Executive Producers, Fiona Pitcher. Fiona has 25 years experience working in factual TV production, 13 of them with the BBC’s Natural History Unit. With her presenters and production teams, she has won two BAFTAs, an Emmy and a Royal Television Society award for SPRINGWATCH which she created.
