How to Self-Tape like a PRO?

Nowadays, it’s more relevant than ever and it’s going to become even more important over the next couple of years.
Self-taping has opened up endless opportunities for emerging actors from all over the world, however it does mean that there are way more actors competing for each role. No one has the time or desire to look at average, boring and poorly put together audition tapes. The reality of it is – if your performance doesn’t captivate in the first 10 seconds, it is safe to say “bye bye” to your dream role.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

If you think you might quite like to be an actor… it’s TOUGH. Get used to that now, stop wishing on a hope and a prayer, and start putting in the hard yards. Realistically, it takes 10-20 years of climbing the ladder before you can claim to be an established ‘in demand’ actor unless you get very, very, VERY lucky. All the actors you see on TV and in movies, didn’t just arrive there by chance. They worked HARD. Every. Single. Day. FOR YEARS.

How to get started as an actor

“I want to be an Actor”

Hello creative soul, and welcome to our very first blog post. 
We thought we’d kick things off right at the beginning, and bring you our tops tips for getting started as an actor.
Firstly, ask yourself these questions:
Are you interested or committed?
There are A LOT of committed talent out there … there are EVEN MORE that are merely interested – think it could be cool, are all talk/no action, don’t actually put any consistent effort in etc.
If you are committed, you will actually set yourself goals and deadlines, come up with a plan to achieve those goals by the deadlines, and then actually take action and work on those plans to meet your deadlines (this is where people usually taper off – stick with it!)
