Acting in Self Tapes (Advanced)


With the pandemic has come a new way of auditioning, whether it be for television, musicals or even training institutions. Self-tapes have arrived and are now a permanent fixture in our industry that allow further engagement, an extended ability to reach a greater number of performers but with it come many challenges.

How to deal with technology? How to do a ‘slate’ introducing yourself? Where should your eyeline be? What angles work? What should the background consist of?  For Musical Theatre, should you perform for stage or camera? How to balance sound? What to wear? How to adapt a performance for camera?

Robin McLeavy is an acclaimed actor who trained at NIDA who frequently works worldwide in stage and screen. Robin will lead the session joined in the final hour by Tyran Parke who has recently cast several musicals via self-tapes/zoom sessions. Together, they have a wealth of experience from behind the camera about what works and what doesn’t when in pursuit of a role.

Whether you are interested in auditioning for Drama School, a television series or a commercial musical, this workshop will take you through the technical skills and creative approaches required to present you most successfully!
