We craft Upshot Reels out of x3 monologues, then mash them together.
Below is our process.

Step 1
You prepare x3 contrasting monologues, each 2.5 mins max.
If your pieces are any longer, you risk not being able to do enough takes.

Step 2
You arrive to our studio, hang in the greenroom,
then we will guide you through the shooting process.

Step 3
You receive your reel within 4 weeks. Fully edited and graded.

Refunds:  50% of your booking payment is non-refundable. This is to cover, studio costs, admin and our time. We do not reschedule bookings due to our irregular scheduling. Please ensure you can commit to the date before booking with us. 

  • No Refunds for bookings canceled within 48 hours. 50% refund for any other cancelations.
  • We can offer discounts to group bookings.
  • We can reschedule bookings for £150. If we have future slots open.
  • If we cancel your booking down to any new COVID rules. We will of course reschedule your booking for another date.
  • If you require more edit changes to your reel there is an additional fee of £37.50 per hour. Usually, most changes are able to be done within 1 hour.
  • We do not do part payments. 
  • Improvisation is very welcome. It helps with making the pieces feel natural and reactive. If you choose to do a whole improvisation for a monologue please prepare scenarios beforehand so the session is effective for you.
  • Wardrobe changes – This is not something we recommend due to it eating into your session time. But you can change if you wish. We suggest wearing plain neutral colours without logos (black). Please don’t ware dresses and clothes that we are unable to clip a mic pack to.
  • Monologue selection – We recommend that you pick monologues that are suited to the purpose you have for your reel  ie. If you’re doing a reel for more film work, maybe avoid picking a soliloquy or theatre pieces directed to an audience.
  • Make up – In our studio we have a waiting 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 30mins before your session to take care of this, if required. 
  • Delivery – We will send you your reel within 4 weeks. RAW footage will also be provided to you as MP4 digitally via Google Drive.
  • Resources – We have a few script resource sites that we can provide to you once you book, so you can find a monologue. This is available upon request.
  • Overrun – 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, due to many factors when shooting with Actors. If this happens, this shouldn’t ever exceed 15-30mins.
  • Information – Please ensure all your information on the booking form is correct (name, number & email). We will be using the name provided on your reel.
  • Showcase – We love to showcase amazing people we work with. If you would like to opt out of us using a short piece of your reel, for our personal showreel material or our @UpshotReel page – do let us know within 48 hours of you receiving your reel. No communication in regards to this, will be taken as your permission to use the materials.
