We're Back!

From "Self-Tape May" to "Self-Tape Slaytember"

We are leveling up this 3-week offering combining all the things you loved from our previous classes. From Self-Tape Challenges to Live Chemistry Reads for EVERYONE, Tips, Support, Community and more!

What We Will Cover

Each week we will tackle a different genre: 1) Triage, 2) Horror and 3) Creating a World (Sci-Fi). From how to incorporate physical impediments to all of those HIGH stakes hospital procedural shows to creating suspense (even when you feel silly) with Horror sides and finally how to bring a world to life for Sci-Fi scenes! Live Sessions will be held Fridays from 11a to 1p (PDT).

  • First two weeks, self-tape auditions are submitted and we will showcase a handful of selected students' tapes with notes.

  • Final Week will be A Live Zoom Audition Session where EVERY student will have a chemistry read.

  • Private discussion group for students to post their tapes each week and create a community with other students

  • Sessions will be recorded and sent to all students. Students will have access to the playback for the duration of the course and two weeks after.

By the end of this course, you will....

  • Get Practice

    With auditions starting to pop up and all the tech requirements expected from actors--practice getting all your tech in place and process in place so you don't scramble when the call comes! Feel confident and put your best take forward!

  • Get Challenged

    We got (2) self-tape challenges and (1) Live Zoom Audition where you can practice tackling some common "Actor Trap" genre sides. High stakes, highly physical, using the frame, creating a world and more!

  • Get Inspired

    You will get an opportunity to view self-tape submissions from your fellow classmates so you can get inspiration for your future self-tapes. All artists borrow and steal :) Build your visual library for your storytelling!
