Introduction to Self Taping focuses on the practical and creative elements that make a great self-taped audition. Over the course of two evenings Casting Director Amy Rowan will work with participants to develop the actor’s skills in mastering this technique, to gain confidence around the self-taping process and what it involves. This course takes you through the technical processes of shooting, framing, lighting etc. and the best ways to use the equipment you have available to you, even if it’s just your phone. Over the course of two evenings the actors will shoot their own auditions with direction and feedback from Amy. Having mastered the technique it will allow you to relax and concentrate on the most important element of the process: your performance.

This workshop is for educational purposes only and is not a guarantee of further casting opportunities.
