frequently asked questions

Can I see video vocal reels from previous clients?

Absolutely! Check out some examples of our previous work on our YouTube channel.

How do I prepare for my session?

Once your booking is confirmed, select your material and send us your backing tracks (we can advise you on this!) 

What happens during my session?

When you arrive at the studio, we will have a cuppa and a quick chat, adjust the lighting in the studio, and do a sound check for levels. We will then record your 3 or 4 songs (45-60 second cuts) in 4K with video and audio at the same time. 

What happens after my session?

After you've recorded everything and feel happy with your takes, we will then edit, mix, master, and add some post-production magic to create a bespoke three minute reel. You'll receive the file which can be uploaded straight to Spotlight, websites, and social media. If you have any notes or edits, we will go back and make these for you - our priority is to ensure that you are happy with the final product. 

How long does it take?

There is no time limit so you can feel relaxed and do as many takes as you like.

With that said, we find that most sessions last approx. 2 hours. 

How much does it cost?

Our video vocal reel package costs £220. 

Our video vocal reel  + vocal coaching session package costs £250.

Our express video vocal reel package costs £150. 

Where is the studio?

Our central London studio is in E1 - just 10 minutes from Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, and Canary Wharf.

We are a 5 minute walk from the DLR and Overground too. 

Which songs do I choose?

Some clients use their Studio Reels session as an opportunity to try out new material, whilst others prefer to record their tried and tested audition favourites - we recommend choosing contrasting songs which show off your vocal range and acting ability. 

Can I record a reel which is longer than three minutes?

Absolutely! We recommend three minutes as a standard (casting directors and agents tend to prefer this!) but we can record extra footage for £50 per additional song/minute of material. Some clients record two completely separate reels to cover different genres (e.g. musical theatre and pop/rock) and we can advise on this. 

Can I warm up at the studio before my session?

Yes! We have a piano in the studio and highly recommend our video vocal reel  + vocal coaching session package.

This will give you 45 minutes with Duncan beforehand to do a full vocal warm-up and run through all your material before you start recording. Not only does this give you an opportunity to perfect final tweaks with an experienced singing coach, but it also helps to calm nerves and avoid vocal strain whilst recording.

How do I book?
