The term EP derives from the world of music, and is short for "Extended Play." In the world of music, an EP is a compilation of songs often created for promotional use, that covers the middle ground between a "single" and a full-length album...
So with that in mind, EP Showreels are taking the concept of a short promotional tool, designed to provide a sample of a musician's talent, and applying it to the world of acting & performance.
We are based in GREATER MANCHESTER and offer custom-made, digital actor showreels, that demonstrate the vast array of skills & attributes that you possess as an actor/performer...
