Nail Your Self-Tape
The competition is tougher than ever to land a coveted role in film and TV. More and more casting teams are using self-taped submissions to filter through actors that may be a fit for the project they have been hired to cast.
Self-tape is the new enigma that confounds actors, much in the same way everyone wants to know “what makes a good headshot?” In this panel discussion, Moodcaster will be using a team of guest professionals to go over what makes a successful self-taped submission that will get you callbacks. The discussion will include slates, camera position, lighting, using the reader effectively, and submitting properly. Don’t miss this seminar on one of the most important things you can do for an audition.
