With the next Showreel Course intake approaching, we took some time out to sit down with one of our current Showreel Course students Mitchell Peters to find out more about his experience in our studios and on-set. This is the first of a four-part interview series that explores the showreel journey of various students, and provides their insight for anyone currently considering the showreel course commencing this coming July 2017.
Why did you decide to study the Showreel Course at Screenwise?
I thought it was great that we were going to be able to shoot a showreel at the end of the course because I knew that I was going to be able to leave with something to show for all the hard work we put into the classes. The classes are also small so you get to bond with the other actors and create a space that allows you to put yourself out there, and if you make a mistake, it’s ok.
How has it been working with the tutors at Screenwise?
I loved it! All the tutors are currently working in the industry so everything you’re being taught is very relevant. You can tell that the tutors really care about making you the best actor you can be.
Highlight of the Showreel Course?
I felt like I learned so much from the American accent classes. It was a lot of fun to play around with that and try to apply to our scripts or scenes as well.
Advice you would offer to any one considering enrolling into the Showreel Course?
You get out of it what you put into it. If you turn up every lesson and know your lines and you’re willing to step outside of your comfort zone then you’ll really benefit from the course.
