How To Eliminate Self-Tape Overwhelm…

Do you get that feeling of pure joy and simultaneous panic when you see an email from your reps that says “SELF TAPE REQUEST?”

Do you check the due date immediately + start rescheduling your day to make your audition the new priority?

I hope so.  That’s what working pros are doing right now to compete at the highest level.

(That’s also how I booked a top-of-show guest star on Grey’s Anatomy off a self-tape).

Look, we all know self-taping is here to stay.

And of course you want to give your best performance, but now you have to make sure the sound, lighting, framing and other technical aspects are at a top professional level too.

There’s definitely a lot of noise out there right now on what to do and what not to do, and so I  put together one simple checklist to make it easy to deliver self-tape success.

Every. Single. Time.

I created this Self-Tape Success Checklist and I wanted to make sure you, my loyal reader, can access it for free!

You can download your Self Tape Success Checklist here for free

Here’s a sneak peak at all you’ll need to cover to deliver awesome self-tapes (and of course, I made it into an alliteration).

This will serve as one complete list to help you ask yourself all the right questions and feel confident with every self tape you send.

    Trying to do a full body slate. Overall area makes it hard to get a clean shot without “stuff” on either side of my backdrop. I end up having to use vertical on my iPhone
