x3 Monologues mixed – Upshot Reel

Our classic mixed scene reels (as seen below) are designed to showcase your versatility and talent. These are our classic Upshot reels as seen on our website. Each Upshot reel consists of three monologues, seamlessly edited together into a 2-3 minute highlight reel. This format ensures that all the best moments are featured in a compact presentation. If you prefer to have these scenes edited separately, additional edits can be requested through our add-ons.

x1 Monologue or Duologue scene
Our Single Upshot Reels showcase one powerful performance with a monologue / duologue, focused on one actor. The monologue material should be up to 2 minutes in length.

x2 Duologues w / Scene partner
For this service you can do x2 scenes with a scene partner, which will be edited to show both actors. We can also tailor the edit, so it’s focused more on one actor to highlight reactions.  Each monologue should be up to 2 minutes in length.

I'm anxious, what is the session like?

Your Upshot Reels session will not be a place where you will be judged. We are here for you. Our aim is to make you feel at ease, so you feel comfortable exploring. The session is super relaxed, so you do not have anything to worry about. We are confident on the day that you will feel like you are performing in your bedroom! Check out our reviews 🙂

Can I Improvise?

Improvisation is very welcome. If you choose to do this,  please prepare scenarios beforehand. We often encourage improvisation around the script to help keep it fresh, as continuity is not required.

What should I wear?

We suggest wearing black, white or earthy tones.  Do not wear any logos. Please ensure that your top is not see-through. Short-sleeve tops work great, but please wear what makes you comfortable. Generally, we suggest not to wear anything too characterful. Please limit or avoid jewelry. We do not recommend wardrobe changes, due to it eating into your session time. Please avoid dresses and clothes that are difficult to attach mic packs to. 

Are the reels only for experienced Actors?

We work with actors at all levels. Upshot Reels are also extremely beneficial for new actors without agents or much experience. Whether it’s to watch yourself back, work with an experienced director, or to use the reel to secure your first agent or job.

What type of monologues can I do?

We recommend that you pick monologues suited to the purpose that you have for your reel ie. If you intend on doing onscreen work, it’s probably best to avoid picking a soliloquy or theatre piece directed to an audience. You can, however, alter a theatre piece to make it work for film. 

Will I have support on the day?

All our reels are directed by Sebastian Thiel, an award winning Director / writer.  Who has been doing Upshot Reels for over 10 years. Sebastian will guide you throughout the session (as much as you need). 

Will anyone do my make up?

In Method Studio we have a dressing room with beauty mirrors. Please be aware there is no one to do your make up. This is something you will have to manage yourself. Feel free to come to the studio before your session to do this. In regards to what type of make up to do. We would suggest going for a more natural look overall.

How soon will I get my reel?

We will send you your reel within 4-8 weeks (workdays) due to current demand. Please take into account bank holidays etc. The RAW footage will also be provided to you. Everything will be sent digitally via Google Drive.

Do you provide Monologues?

We do not provide monologues or assit with what pieces you should pick.  However we do have a few resources that will be provided to you once you book, to help you find a monologue. This is available upon request.

How long is my session?

Sessions are 1 hour and 15 mins. Please be aware that shoots can overrun, so you may be at the studio slightly longer than expected. This is rare, but it can happen. 

What do you mean by contrasting monologues?

Each monologue you preform should feel different. Wether it’s the energy of the character, accent, emotional state or genre of the piece etc. It’s important that they all showcase something fresh for you to get the most out of the reel.  We are aiming to show as much of you and your range, and this will help in doing so.
