How much time should I book to complete my self tape?
Your audition session should include enough time for you to do an initial read through, do a few takes, preview them and complete a title slide. If you wish to receive coaching on your performance throughout, factor this into the time required too. If you have 2 – 4 pages in total, 30 minutes is sufficient. If you have 6 – 8 pages, it is recommended that you book at least 1 hour.
Do I need to bring anything for my audition?
All you need to do is bring at least two copies of the sides, along with any other personal items or props you wish to use in the scene. If you wish to wear any specific clothing items, please wear them or have them readily-accessible to save time.
I booked 1 hour for my audition but ended up finishing in 30 minutes. Do I only have to pay for the 30 minutes?
You are expected to pay for the length of time you book as this influences the studio schedule and availability to other clients.
Can I bring my own reader?
Absolutely. Please specify this at the time of booking. Owing to space it is requested that you bring no more than one reader with you.
