AUDITIONS IN THE MODERN AGE: Mastering the Self-Tape

taught by Jim McCaffrey
Tuesday, November 7 from 7-10PM

As time goes on, the self-tape audition is becoming more and more common, across all mediums—whether you’re auditioning for film, TV, industrials, or theater, actors are booking off of tapes regularly. In this class, Jim will cover what makes a self-tape really work (and not work), showcase examples of great self-tapes, offer up helpful hints for getting self-tapes shot quickly and efficiently, and lead students through a self-tape simulation (with actual sides from TV and theater auditions), then offer feedback in class. A valuable class for any actor auditioning in today’s climate!
