Most actors' cringe at the words 'self-tape' but it's something that is becoming more and more prevalent in the industry. With advances in internet and cameras, Casting Directors now frequently ask for actors to prepare a scene and put themselves on tape.
Those that have done this will have experienced balancing your ipad atop piles of books whilst juggling with the bedside lamp and curtains to achieve the perfect light - and wait, make sure it's filmed against the correct background...is that the dog barking in the garden?
Then, once you've taken the perfect shot, you have to edit, upload, password protect and share....from start to finish, you need a good 4 hours!

Once it's shot, we'll edit, upload and password protect your video, send you the link you need to share it and keep our fingers crossed for you!
