Let’s face it - you can’t always get to a studio or your agent’s office to audition. Your next best option is to self tape! We live in the technology age and knowing how to quickly and easily submit your audition is imperative. You don’t want to miss out on an opportunity because you’re afraid of technology, or simply don’t know how to self-tape.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to record quality auditions for film and commercials.

By the end of this class you’ll know how to:

  • Record your slates/auditions with your equipment

  • Avoid common self-taping mistakes

  • Frame and compose your auditions

  • Plus, you’ll leave with a list of equipment recommendations!
