Showreel courses

I'd like to put together a professional actors showreel, but I'm currently struggling for footage beyond student films/acting class footage and I'm willing to put in the money for a professional showreel to save me some time - does anybody know of any company (tried and tested) that produce more than just one scene for a decent price? (although price isn't the deciding factor here - quality is).
Preferably a person/people who are familiar with what's good for a showreel and will do a good job of working with the actor/s to get the best performance. I'll be looking for a scene partner or two (or three?) at some point so if anyone's interested in splitting the bill let me know! I'm happy to travel anywhere in the country if it means getting really good results, so location isn't an issue.

I used Daniel Johnson Films in Stratford London. He was brilliant and worked with me to create what I wanted. He wrote, directed, provided the other actors and location for a very decent price (I can't remember exactly how much). I received my edited showreel with three scene in about a week.

I'd recommend the Actors Studio at Pinewood. You do two specially-written scenes over a day and they bring in other actors to take part. I've been back a few times to appear in other people's showreels. Their attention to detail is extraordinary and it's fun being at Pinewood. They send the edited showreel within about a week.

I second Actors Studio! I did a course with them as I was new to film acting, I think it was 8 or 10 weeks in total , with final two sessions in Pinewood Studios to film the showreel. The final edit is very professional. The price is on the higher side, but I'd say it's worth it if you can afford it.
