Expert Help When You Need It Most
Have an important audition coming up? Need to be sure you’re making the choices that casting, writers and producers are looking for? Maybe you need the confidence boost that comes with extra prep. Come get some. The Self Tape Place coaches are experts who give clear, certain answers to all of your questions and erase all of your doubts.
Our coaching covers story, character, scaling and tone specific to your project
We know what the writers are asking you to do. Our penetrating script analysis method (iCAMERA) was developed by Actors Comedy Studio Founder, Gunnar Rohrbacher. We look through the lens of the writer to decode what is in your pages. As if by magic, you’ll audition understanding the story and character as they do. Casting directors will become your biggest fans! Our time tested system is equally effective for drama as well as comedy.
Our coaching feedback includes physicality, blocking, volume, projection, timing, rhythm, pace and jokes as well as crystal clear character definition and overall tone of the show. Our students book consistently because they aren’t guessing about anything.
Single-cam? Multi-cam? Hybrid? Dramedy? We’ve got you!
Since we’re Sitcom specialists, we can help you crush single-cam, multi-cam and dramedy auditions. Everything from The Big Bang Theory to Barry. If you’re confused about the differences or how those labels impact your audition, we’re the best qualified coaches in all of Hollywood to help you. We’re no slouches at straight up drama, either.
What about spacework? Improv? Buttons? Tag lines?
Our coaching includes clear direction on physical actions and space work required to pull off a great looking audition. We can help you gauge how much to add or ad-lib and whether a tag line is necessary or not, specific to each scene. We do this every day and we’re great at reading the needs of each project.
What if I haven’t had Audition Technique training?
Some actors don’t realize that auditioning is a unique genre of acting that requires specific training. They might be unsure about the technical aspects, like where to place eye-lines and how to activate for the camera before speaking. We offer coaching for beginning auditioners who haven’t had audition technique training yet.
Some auditions look unprofessional even if the actor is talented, trained and right for the part. Darting eyes, vocal static and leaning in toward the camera are just a few reasons an audition can be unsuccessful, even if the actor is good.
If you lack solid audition technique, your chances of booking are slim. We teach actors to audition like pros.
Coaching time is in addition to your reading session! (ie; 15 mins. coaching + 15 mins. reading)
You can also book an audition coaching without using our reading services. We coach in person or via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype. In addition, we’re the industry leaders in Diversity Showcase Coaching. We also offer Youth Coaching and Headshot Consultations.
