WHATS THE FIRST STEP IN SHOOTING MY SCENES?
It’s generally best if you have sense of what sort of project you might like to shoot, although we can also help you make this decision. We're also happy help out with location suggestions and scene partner casting if you don’t have this already.
WHAT IS THE DURATION OF EACH SCENE?
Our package pricing is based on 2-hander scenes with a duration of approximately two to three minutes. We can always create longer scenes but as they take more time to shoot and edit, which will increase your budget.
WHERE ARE SCENES SHOT?
Many of our clients choose to shoot in the basement studio at jj splice films, which is included in our package rates.
Others find a location which suits the style of their scene. Sometimes this is their own house, a friends business, a rented space, an Air BnB house or simply out and about on the streets.
Locations are within 20km of the Sydney CBD. Additional charges for travel time are incurred outside this radius on order to preserve quality.
CAN YOU HELP FIND A SCENE PARTNER?
Yes, many of our former clients are keen to work with us again and will often be scene partners for new clients. We have relationships with most agents in Sydney as well as a database of emerging actors keen to become involved. We're always happy to suggest casting and connect actors.
CAN I HAVE MY DRAMA COACH ON SET?
Absolutely - some clients wish to be directed by their drama coaches on set, or just have them there for support.
In the event that your drama coach is directing, we aim to discuss the approach to coverage and style before the shoot so that everyone is on the same page.
WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT TERMS?
Full payment must be made prior to commencement of filming. We accept credit cards, PayPal and EFT.
CAN I SPLIT THE COST OF MY REEL WITH ANOTHER ACTOR?
Yes, this is a great way to keep costs down. However, it's important to let us know if you are doing this so that we can either make sure that coverage on both actors is equivalent; or create two separate edits to emphasise different aspects of each actors work.
