About this course
Hello and welcome to this private One to One 7 day Self-Tape Academy.
As we move into a new world where auditions with the casting director are going to become a thing of the past and self-taping is going to be the way of the future, now is the time to get camera ready! Become a self-tape king or queen.
Take the opportunity of getting yourself camera ready!!!
Look around you, we are living in a new world that isn't going to change back to what you knew very quickly. This new world is where everyone is having to be more hands-on. We are having to do more and more self-promotion in this new digital age, and everyone needs to keep up or be left behind. We aren't leaving anyone behind in this course!!!!
The benefits for this are HUGE! As actors, we now get to audition for international work and we can submit to casting directors as never before.
What Is the 7 Day Self Tape Academy?
The Self Tape Academy has created a number of online courses designed to help actors be on top of their game. First you'll learn the basics of doing a great self tape and then every day during the 7 days you’ll learn a new script, shoot your self-tape, upload it to the academy and share it with your fellow actors.
- Firstly....You need a phone or some sort of recording device and you will need to learn how to light your room, shoot a video and then upload an MP4 file
- Suitable for age 18 and over.
- This course takes place over 7 days.
- It starts on a Saturday and finishes on a Friday.
- On Day 1 you learn how to use our platform and record your first introduction self-tape and you will receive your first script.
- Then at midnight each day, you get a new script and a place to upload your video from the day before.
- Each day you will learn a script
- Shoot and Edit that video
- Upload to the Academy. Rinse and Repeat for 7 days
You’ll gain confidence through the practice of recording self-tapes, get insight from watching other self tapes, and receive valuable feedback on your work from the self tape academy tutors.
What is the daily time commitment to this course?
I don't know how to answer this but.... You will choose what time of day you do your work. Its totally up to you.
At a guess .......
You will need to learn a script (maybe 1 hour to 2 depending on how quickly you learn scripts - they are short)
Shoot, Edit and Upload to the website (if you have set up your studio on day 1, know how to add a slate also learned on day 1, know your script and you don't make any mistakes maybe 1 hour)
This course will get you set up and ready for the moment your agent calls you and says "I have an audition for you - can you do me a self tape", and you will be able to say YES! no problem on it now.
Best of all you will have a lot of fun doing it!
We sincerely hope you enjoy this course.
