Self Tape & Audition Class


With Edward Rea

It seems that we will be doing a lot more self tapes and live online auditions moving forward once the Film & TV industry gets jump started again. There are reports that BC may start sooner as we are doing a good job at bending the curve. This weekly class is a way for actors to sharpen their audition preparation skills and keep inspired during this unprecedented time. The self tape & video audition may become the new normal. Each class will consist of feedback on a scene that is taped and sent in the day before. Callbacks will be live during the class time. Technical aspects of self taping will be discussed as well as audition performance in a self taping audition. Staying sharp and committed to the craft so when opportunities open again, we will all be ready to compete in the new audition environment.

When: Wednesdays 5pm – 8pm, Starting July 8th
For: 19+
Participants: 12
Fees: $175 GST included
