  • The connection between your self-tape audition and working on-camera as a professional on set

  • Designing an efficient self-tape set-up that allows you to focus on the craft of on-camera acting.

​​

  • Self-Tape editing, take selection, and sending more than one take to casting

  • Viewing self-tapes that lead to booking with the context of the information the actor received for the audition

  • Practicing on-camera self-tape auditions between classes and receiving personalized feedback
