Ep. 3: Getting Right With Self-Tapes

Show Notes

The landscape is changing. Self-tapes are the new audition room. But how can you show up fully and do your best work when it’s just you, a camera, and an empty room? Listen as Risa and Steve debunk every myth about self-taping (the blue background, finding a reader, recreating the casting room, etc) and answer your burning questions about how to approach your self-tapes with power, with presence, with freedom, and as an opportunity to truly be in command of your artistry and your career. It’s time to get right with self-tapes!

“You have to show up in your self-tape unapologetically, ferociously, lovingly- and do the kind of bold, confident work you would do if you already had the part. While you’re making your self-tape, the part IS yours.”‍

Meet us on Instagram and other social spaces where we hang out — with tons more great advice, inspiration, and Industry intel, especially in this time of self-isolating + sheltering-in-place.
