Self-tapes are becoming one of the most important tools for casting professionals, and a more and more common part of the audition process …

So we’ve decided to give our members some tips on how to make the perfect self-tape to send through … and the chance to win a self-tape starter kit to help!


Here are some basic tips on how to nail a home-made self-tape, so that you don’t miss out on those roles!

- Follow the casting professional instructions & read what they ask for, as this is your first test for direction

- Your phone is perfectly fine! (Though you will also find there are free self-tape resources at your nearest equity location)

- Make sure you have good lighting (no shadows on your face, a ring-light could be a good investment for this) & clear sound (a quiet space)

- Have a plain background (remember to shut any doors, and clear any messes or distractions)

- Natural face & simple clothes (the casting professional is interested in what you really look like!)

- Avoid the selfie! Either get someone to film you, or set your camera on a stand – the frame should be upper chest to just above your head.

- Properly label what you send through: either as instructed, or with your name & the role/job you are auditioning for eg. JohnSmithStarNowTVCExtra.mp4


Hopefully this gives you the know-how to feel confident with your future self-tapes!
