It’s time to figure it out: Auditioning and Self-taping are different.

You want to figure out how to book work via your self-tapes. Auditioning and self-taping are different now. During the best of times, auditioning on-camera can feel daunting. Add a global pandemic and the Industry changing how it engages with actors, and you may be feeling like your audition and self-tapes are impossible to crack. However, you have a unique opportunity right now to be inside (and ahead) of the change as the Industry embraces this new way of working-so that you can actually book work via your self-tapes!

As Zoom, online auditions, and self-tapes have become the actor’s professional home, truth, specificity, and presence are the core of your work, now more than ever. NOW is the time for your craft and your audition practice to solidify. This requires letting go of exactness, of a need to control every piece of the work, of trying to be what “they’re looking for” or to “get it right.” It’s being brave enough to throw the rules and restrictions out the window.


No matter what you’ve been told-from anyone-just following some perceived prescription about self-taping is the antithesis of showing up and being seen. Your best on-camera audition is actually a living, dynamic piece of work — happening in real time and moving your audience on an emotional level.

So… Be the actor who adopts a new, more authentic, more alive way of self-taping and shows up on camera with presence, with ease, fully dropped into the story, all cylinders firing. Be the actor whose self-tape grabs the attention of every casting director, director, producer, and executive.  Be the actor who books work consistently — no matter where in the world you are.

The work...

Zoom is the perfect platform for this work together. Each week you’ll work in the virtual space online via Zoom, on camera, addressing self-tapes with real-world input. and tackle all of the audition and self-tape challenges and pitfalls, along with learning ways in which to free your work and show up fully on-camera. The material you work on will be a variety of scenes chosen by you and/or your teachers, including material that is challenging in every way. The work will be recorded and sent to you for your PRIVATE review. And you’ll also do some self-taping at home and bring it in for review and coaching. Here you get to do it all!

It’s so doable. And this class is going to show you how!

Over the course of 8 weeks, Corey will challenge you to hone in on your authentic voice and all the power YOU hold every time you show up in your self-tapes so that you have the tools to actually book the job. You’ll explore the work right from where YOU are now, and acquire practical tools to level up your on-camera work by bringing your boldest, truest, most joyful self to every self-tape or Zoom callback. The best part? You’ll get ahead of the game by doing it in a new, intimate online classroom where the work is proving to be deeply personal, authentic, and present. Working this way has amazing possibilities. It’s what our new reality offers, and we’re embracing it fully!

Corey Parker has been at this awhile, and he’s dedicated to a process in which you learn to pivot in this new direction the Industry is calling for by letting go of old habits and trusting more than ever your authentic creative instincts.  You are valuable as an actor, and finding where your unique voice meets every piece of material is your key to powerful work.

Everything changes the moment you sign up!

"What an amazing class! Corey was really fantastic- I learnt so much more about my process and he guided me further to where I need to go- he really opened another portal which I put into practice today. He framed it for me so well, and I walked away nourished, knowing that I am getting closer to my core. He was so good with everyone and I learnt so much from all the advice he gave."

- Henry Hereford, CROSSBONES

"I was freaked out about self-taping big time. I’ve always relied on facilities but with Covid, I had to learn how to do this. I live alone, am not technical, and was quite intimidated about this class. All that went away upon my first session. Loved the class! Ironically, our last exercise was to tape a self-written monologue. As life goes, I had to write a monologue and tape if for a feature right as I got this assignment. It was so easy for me to do and I couldn’t have felt so confident about doing so if I’d not taken this class."

- Roslyn Cohn, MANK

"Essential for any actor during this time. Get comfortable with the new normal for virtual auditions! Corey is welcoming and instantly makes actors feel comfortable. Get to know your instrument and how to make it work for your self-tapes!"

- Emily Skelton, LOW ROLLERS

"Jane’s insight was like lifting the veil on a part of auditions that can still seem mysterious; she helped us understand what we can do to empathize with casting’s point of view. Couple that with her terrific guidance and specific approaches on raising the stakes, making a scene or audition stand out, and her attention to detail for each actor made time in her class invaluable."

- John Wilcox, ANOMALY
