5 Week self-tape & auditioning online workshop

As the technology we have at our disposal improves, the potential to deliver a well-crafted audition from the comfort of our home increases.

 

We will be looking at what is required of us as actors and artists when asked to "self-tape" and how to construct an interesting and memorable slice of life that we are proud to submit.

 

Once we can be comfortable with how to turn our living space into a creative space with no distractions, either visually or mentally, only then can we get down to the job of recording a "scene".

 

There is, of course, no guarantee that we will get the job every time, but we can at the very least enjoy the process of bringing the text to life. By being consistently authentic, what we create will resonate with anyone who sees our work.

Course Outline
Session 1

Why self-tape?

Understanding the requirements being asked of you when sent a scene to self-tape and how to use this opportunity to your advantage.

Session 2

Getting it done!

To be seen and heard on camera without overthinking the end result or filming hundreds of takes to get the "perfect" one. Just do it. 

Session 3

Have fun doing it! 

Taking the stress out of self-taping and learning to see how empowering this way of creating little slices of life can be.
