At some point in our careers, we need to invest in ourselves as professional actors who want to break into the competitive industry of entertainment.
As it is essential for actors to keep training, honing their skills, and equip themselves with the necessary tools, the same goes for the investment they have to make to showcase their talent to the casting directors, directors, and producers.
This investment is your headshots and showreels. They both manifestly need our ultimate attention to make you stand out and bring you the audition to land your next role.
What we aim for is to produce scenes that are shot and directed in a cinematic manner, treating every scene as it's been a part of a whole feature, or series, or even a short film on its own.
Our scripts are bespoke and from scratch and all the characters highlight actors' abilities and entice them to give outstanding performances.
Showcasing every aspect of their acting. We make sure that every take counts, which is why we coach the actors on their characters and their scene.
Productive collaboration and exchanging ideas are the elements that are more important to us for an unequaled result.
As a starting-out actor, having a photographer who understands the actor-specific headshots was absolutely essential to get the right images. I really appreciated the pre-session advice, as well as directions and storytelling during the shoot to bring out a variety of characters on my face and allow me to display a range of emotions. Gabriel's understanding of photography also means that I received a great portion of quality photos to choose from. He was very generous with his time and even helped me out to select the best pieces where I wasn't entirely sure. Also, the speed at which he worked on retouching the final selection was marvellous! Wonderful experience, friendly and professional approach. Very relaxed atmosphere during the photoshoot. Just excellent.
On the day of the shoot, I met with Gabriel and Maria, who were a fantastic team to work with. Aside from actor, I am also a filmmaker with an obsessive eye for detail. Within the first minutes on set with Gabriel, I was totally confident in him. He has a great eye for a shot, he is a very capable director, nice and friendly. The final output was very impressive. I've seen many generic looking showreel scenes, but the scene we have shot could have easily been plucked from a movie or TV series. I also noted Gabriel's editing was fantastic too. He managed to capture the mood and the moments perfectly. I am very happy to have met and worked with Gabriel and Maria. They are very professional and I genuinely enjoyed working with them both . I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Three Acts World Productions to another actor, looking for some high-end reel footage.

I did an outside shoot under Battersea Bridge with Gabriel and his wife Maria. They are a very charming and professional couple, and made me feel relaxed and ready to perform, after a long stressful journey to get to the location. Gabriel is a one-man film crew and he somehow managed to direct and operate the camera/sound equipment simultaneously.
Gabriel is a fantastic cinematographer and has lots of imagination and innovative ideas. He also listened to the actors opinions and was happy to allow a melting pot of creativity.
Maria was the very talented co-star in the film and it was a joy to act alongside her.
I'm very pleased with the final scene, which I received unbelievably fast! I would definitely work with them again.
''Gabriel is a man of many talents. For headshot photography, he has a revolutionary style and approach. He leads the sessions by asking what it is your seeking which is nice but that’s not the key element he THEN: DIRECTS you as an ACTOR. Many times at drama school I heard my friends say they hated getting their headshots done because they felt so awkward. I personally found it fun because I had modelled for friends before but that’s not the key to getting great headshots. You might get pretty pictures - but what really constitutes a great headshot? Modelling is not remotely similar to acting. And this is precisely why his headshot session is groundbreaking. I have gotten so many jobs with it -of course, I work really hard and submit myself to tons and tons of jobs but it’s also because the headshots he takes are striking and they show *character*. His headshots show you doing your job as an actor, you can sense the characters jumping out of the picture. And the process is very very fun. Just relax and prepare to have a good time with results that will positively surprise you.
For the showreel process: Gabriel listened to what I really needed, what I didn’t already have in my showreel. He then came up with the script idea. We were able to do a rehearsed reading on zoom and ask him any questions along the way. Then we met up to shoot and we quickly shot the whole scene(s)! He can make the final scene look pretty cool and it’s a great way to showcase what you can do. He will take care of you (make you look good) in the edit as well''

I would highly recommend Three Acts World Productions for headshots! As an actor it can always be an awkward and hard process getting your headshots but, Gabriel puts you at ease and has a way of working with you. By getting you to do what you love, act! Which brings that spark of engagement and joy to the camera lens. The session flew by and I had my photos in a very quick turn around. His appreciation and attention to detail made me sure we would get great photos. And We did. I am very sure I will be returning to this company again.

I enjoyed every moment working on set with three acts productions and found it very relaxing. The director is extremely professional and goes out of his way to ensure every shot is taken to the best standard possible and is very thorough with this work.

It was an amazing shoot thanks to Gabriel Syfer for filming and writing the script. I would 100% recommend using him . Amazing cast and I had such a brilliant time working with Three Acts World.
