Self Tape FAQ
How do I book an appointment?
Send us an email and introduce yourself. We will coordinate with you personally and find a time slot that works.
How much does a self tape cost?
That depends on how long it takes. The cost is $1 per minute and this includes the taping process as well as the editing. The better you have your lines memorized, the faster the process. (Estimation 20 - 60 minutes per script)
Do you have readers?
Yes, we provide one reader per tape. In addition, we offer on-camera direction for actors that would like feedback.
How long in advance should I book out my tape?
We understand that self tape opportunities can present themselves to you at the last minute. We are flexible with timing at the studio, but we do follow the first come, first serve policy with tapings.
What should I wear?
Wear a dark colored shirt, as our backdrop is light in color. We wouldn't want you to get lost in the background. Also, logo-less shirts with solid colors are preferred by most casting directors.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We use a 4k capable Panasonic DVX 200 broadcast camera, combined with the Aputure Deity shotgun microphone, and LED studio lighting.
What are your hours?
We operate at the studio daily from 9:30 am to 6pm. However, if you have an important tape to get done over the weekend, we can get a reader to come in most of the time.
Have your clients had success in booking auditions?
Yes! We have had several clients book roles in feature films after submitting our self tapes. We have even had two separate clients that have booked multiple roles from one day at the studio.
What is an average turnaround time?
After recording your audition, we edit and export the favorite take on the spot. This process usually takes us about 5 minutes, but if you would like multiple takes exported we can do this as well. You will have the files in your email by the time you leave the building.
