Self-tapes are becoming one of the most important tools for casting professionals, and a more and more common part of the audition process, and espeically now at this time where we cannot go out to castings in person…

So we’ve decided to give our members some tips on how to make the perfect self-tape to send through … and the chance to win a self-tape starter kit to help!

Here are some basic tips on how to nail a home-made self-tape, so that you don’t miss out on those roles!

- Follow the casting professional instructions & read what they ask for, as this is your first test for direction

- Your phone is perfectly fine! (Though you will also find there are free self-tape resources at your nearest equity location)

- Make sure you have good lighting (no shadows on your face, a ring-light could be a good investment for this) & clear sound (a quiet space)

- Have a plain background (remember to shut any doors, and clear any messes or distractions)

- Natural face & simple clothes (the casting professional is interested in what you really look like!)

- Avoid the selfie! Either get someone to film you, or set your camera on a stand – the frame should be upper chest to just above your head.

- Properly label what you send through: either as instructed, or with your name & the role/job you are auditioning for eg. JohnSmithStarNowTVCExtra.mp4

Hopefully this gives you the know-how to feel confident with your future self-tapes!
