Self Taping & Audition

Self Taping & Auditions in Connecticut : We offer high quality self taping & audition clips, slate shots, acting reels, and voiceovers for both acting and corporate use. As professional actors, we are aware of industry standards and will make sure your talent shines and the end product is competitive. With increased competition over theatre, film and television roles is more than important than ever to present a professional audition tape. While home taping is convenient and less expensive, a professional grade self tape gives the impression of a committed, serious actor. 

For Acting Auditions

Self taping has become common for auditions. Casting professionals make their decisions very quickly, so it’s important that you can be seen, heard, and present a clean and professional audition tape. We make it an easy process and provide you with a professional and attractive finished product as quick as you need it!

Self Taping & Audition Session includes:

  • Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper
  • Professional actor available to read with you at no charge
  • Professional lighting
  • Professional grade shotgun mic audio.
  • Professional Makeup application (optional/additional fee)
  • Slate Shots if desired

We can provide additional audio work for musical theatre, voiceovers, or song demos. If needed we can provide backing tracks as well as in studio accompaniment. 

Our goal is to create a calm and welcoming environment to put you at ease where you can be creative and relaxed. So there is never a rush and you are able to present yourself in the best way possible. We don’t schedule back to back sessions so it is no issue if you want to spend more time.
