In the post-COVID world, Self Tapes are more important than ever before. Self Tapes will likely remain the industry standard for most auditions going forward. So it is essential to nail your process down.
To help you do this, Kimball Studio encourages all our actors to create a SELF TAPE CODE.
With self tapes, you are your own director.
So imagine that "Director You" will only ever give "Actor You" 3 takes for each self tape. How can you make sure you nail it in 3? Create a code for this, such as:
Take 1: Listen.
Take 2: Make it CLEAR - especially the most important lines.
Take 3: Clean it up; make it perfect.
Write down your code for your future actor/director self, and use it for your next self tape.

We hope this helps & inspires!
