Group Showreel Shoot Sessions

In conjunction with The Collective Media Co. and the formidable Writer/Director duo Eyre and Ely, act4tv Productions are thrilled to be holding some Group Showreel Shoot Sessions for our actors.

The Team

The Collective Media Co.

Sam Retford is an Actor, Director and Co-Founder of The Collective Media Co. Having worked for many years on stage and in front of the camera, he decided to pursue a more ‘hands on’ approach behind the camera; starting with his directorial debut in THE LONG WALK BACK, currently streaming in film festivals across the USA.

Since then Sam has gone on to produce and direct several short films and documentaries both nationally and internationally, with many more exciting projects on the horizon.

Eyre and Ely

Eyre and Ely are a young BAFTA/OSCAR qualifying writing team who have together made 3 feature films, 4 critically acclaimed short films and a theatre musical. Writer/Director Lloyd Eyre-Morgan trained at UCLA Film School and his movies have received showings and release at Picturehouse Cinemas London and Cineworlds. Neil Ely is a Manchester-based Writer/Director. Since 2015, Neil and Lloyd have joined together as a successful writing team – Eyre and Ely. Most recently, they adapted the BAFTA Accredited Short Film CLOSETS into a sell-out musical gaining 4 & 5 ★ reviews at Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester.

Eyre and Ely are currently working alongside Island Films in development on a new British Horror film “Kill Pill” which they co-wrote and are set to co-direct together. Most recently they have participated in a development writers room for a new TV Series with Nevison, and they are developing a live-action children’s series with Infinite Wisdom Studios. They are currently developing several new television and feature ideas.

Most recently they completed a coming of age short film S.A.M, which explores acceptance and how people living with a learning disability can feel about love and sexuality. It stars HOLLYOAKS actor David Tag, ACKLEY BRIDGE’s Sam Retford and Mencap ambassador George Webster, with support from Mencap. They are currently developing a feature-length version with Island Films.
