The show reel I made with Wendy Ward has been an excellent tool for me as an actor with stage credits but no film credits. Not only was the process a valuable learning experience, I’m now landing film work I wouldn’t have without the reel. I've booked two roles on the strength of the reel without having to audition!
"Booked a role on the strength of my reel."
Wendy and Anthony were great! They helped me produce a sampling of work that I can now utilize in marketing myself in many different ways. Wendy’s instincts and guidance throughout the creative process of the project are priceless. What a great team!
"What a great team!"
"Taught me to seek truth."
[Wendy] taught me to seek truth with boldness and toughness and to make no excuses or apologies when doing so...to need-it-like-oxygen and it has affected my priorities in art and expression and I'm forever grateful. —Steve Annan, Philadelphia
Creating my show reel with the Ward Acting Studio team currently stands as one of the best creative experiences of my life. Wendy works with you to find material that not only suits you, but also brings out your best qualities. Creation of your reel provides you with the learning experience of tailoring your skills in front of the camera — a must if you want to go into film and tv. I received a professional looking reel that has made me marketable. A short time after posting my reel, I received compliments on it from one casting director and an immediate invitation to audition for a film from another. I highly recommend Ward Acting Studio show reel service. You will make a key investment in your career.
"One of the best creative experiences of my life."
Wendy Ward’s dedication and conviction to achieving work that is not just entirely believable but instead actually real is incredibly inspirational. —Jordan Katelanis, Melbourne, Australia
For someone who hadn't even done any high school acting, it was a pretty big leap to attempt to shoot a reel after only 3 months of part-time acting coaching.
"Wendy guided the entire process from the initial scene selection, scripts, supporting actors, set selection and working with the director, Anthony Miracola (a young director that is as humble and pleasant to work with as he is talented). Wendy and Anthony work very well together with a mutual respect that brings out the best in the process. The entire process felt very professional, relaxed and natural...and was an exhilarating experience!
"An exhilarating experience!"
"Each second 100% there with you."
Wendy makes sure you are able to feel the difference in your good work from your bad work. She is incredibly generous in her teaching. She's always, each second 100% there with you. Always. She's never, never, never superficial. And, most of all, she really wants you to be a good actor. She really does. —Aglaia Mora, Italy
"Working with Wendy and Anthony on my show reel was a highly rewarding experience. It challenged me in unexpected ways and helped me learn what it takes to act, produce, and write my own content. The end product is more than an acting show reel; it’s a display of your creative and technical skills."
"Started booking serious work."
I really only started booking serious work after completing my Meisner training with Wendy Ward. Since I finished, I've booked three network co-star roles and a major movie coming out this year and keep getting called back by the same casting directors. I'm truly grateful to Wendy! —Julee Cerda, Broadway revival Children of a Lesser God, Smart People (Atlanta), Orange is the New Black, House of Cards.
"Years of experience.“
Wendy’s years of experience have made her capable of noticing your strengths and weaknesses very quickly, making you lose your bad acting habits, not by forcing her point of view upon you but by helping you grasp what you lack and what you need to do to become good...and yourself. —Gintare Parylute, Berlin
Wendy is with you every step of the way, ensuring that the scenes you film serve you in the best possible way, and that your strengths are on full display. Anthony is professional, and produces a fantastic looking product. I cannot recommend this service enough.
"A fantastic looking product."
Wendy was instrumental in helping me decide what tone the reel should have and what skills to showcase. I learned how to apply my Meisner training on a film set where time is of the essence and things need to move quickly.
