The biz is back! On Friday, June 12th, here in California we got the green light that production can resume after the COVID-19 shutdown.
I know that my amazing community of actors are all over the world, but now that Hollywood production is slowly returning, that’s a good sign that other cities may get back to work in the coming weeks + months soon too.
I want to celebrate by sending a free gift that will help you to compete at the highest level in our “new normal.”
One thing every actor must be ready to rock? The Self Tape.
I know so many actors who are feeling overwhelmed with all they have to think about in order to submit a pro-level self-tape that really stands out.
It’s definitely not the same as simply walking into a live audition.
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 decided to 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 you, my loyal reader, to be the first to have it, for free!
Lighting + Landscape
Find A Good Reader
Take Time For the Slate
Audition Mindset Prep
Project Formatting + Labelling Instructions
Expedite Your Audition + Eliminate The Extras
In fact, under each subject, I’ve listed the top 3 questions to ask yourself + I offer some key insights I’ve personally used for my own self tapes that booked me the job. (Like a Top Of Show Guest Star role on Grey’s Anatomy).
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.
Even if you go to a self-tape service, bring this checklist with you to ensure you’re not missing a beat.
Just my way of saying thanks for being part of this awesome #ActorInspiration community and to celebrate getting back to our beloved business.
It is the work of the artist that heals, uplifts, empowers and inspires.
We need you to be ready to play at the top of your game.
And I hope to see you on the set soon.
Let me know in the comments below what your biggest challenge is doing self tapes.
We are really all in this together.
Love + Gratitude,
P.S. If you want extra guidance for me, you’ll love this brand new guided meditation to help you create Self-Tape Success (+ The Mindset Of Booking).
In under 10 minutes, you’ll let go of self-doubt + second guessing while also knowing exactly where to put your focus to give stand-out auditions (and feel more free than ever before – no matter how long you’ve been out of the loop).
Yesterday, one of my Spotlight Club members, Sophia Tzougrous, mentioned how much it helped her in a recent online acting class too!
Grab it as my gift to you (along other empowering monthly mindset tools) and set yourself up with ONE place to go for support, community and mentoring. Details here.
