Self taping is an increasingly used method of casting in the film and television industry. Instead of going along to a conventional audition or screen test, actors are now asked to film their own auditions, edit the scenes together and send the finished product to the casting director or production company concerned. Many find this process daunting and confusing, even terrifying, not knowing where to start, whether they've got it right or if what they have filmed is of good enough quality.
This book, written by an established casting director with over 25 years of experience, is packed with inside information, advice and resources to guide you through self taping step-by-step – from what to prepare before filming to sending your tape… and what to expect afterwards.
An indispensable read for every actor and performer, which will ensure you’re prepared, keep you ahead of the competition and increase your success.
