Self Tape Boot Camp

Respond by:
CEL Studio helps actors achieve their career goals with impactful training, type specific headshots, professional self taping, and coaching and consulting

Casting Directors in all markets, including this one, have confirmed, “Actors need to know how to self tape.”  This is important for local performers because auditions for projects coming to Minnesota using the film production tax credit are being done via self tape.

I purposefully call this a Self Tape Boot Camp rather than a class because I want actors to have the expectation they will be drilling the process – actively working to get better at it – no matter where they are starting from.

In the Boot Camp we will:

  • Cover best practices
  • Work in front of the camera with audition sides, and review the work
  • Focus on audition preparation, interpreting sides, and making engaging choices
  • Focus on individual needs to level up from where actors are

Actors who have a home set-up will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their set-ups and choices via the audition videos they share in class – to improve on the product they are producing.

When: Saturdays 2/24, 3/2, 9, 16, 23, and 30, from 1 to 5 pm
Where: Grain Belt Bottling House Studios, NE Minneapolis
Cost: $300

If you would like to join the class or have any questions, contact me via this form ASAP, www.celstudio.com/contact.  I’m happy to talk about my approach.
