Self-Tape to Booking


What does a self-tape that gets a “callback” look like?

What is the role of casting directors, network executives & directors when it comes to casting a project?

How are virtual producer sessions going to work?

As an actor, there are so many factors out of our control.


The Audition Process is Getting Disrupted.

Do you want to level up your self-tape auditions?

Are you getting self-tape requests less than once a week?

Do you think: I was taught how to audition in school but self-tapes are a different animal. How do I get better?

The Audition Process is Getting Disrupted.

As the industry begins to open up, casting will be depending on self-tapes and virtual sessions to book actors. How do you navigate taking notes virtually? Using the frame via Zoom? Re-shooting your self-tapes with notes from casting? Welcome to…


This 3-week class is designed to give students the experience of what we expect the “new” audition process post quarantine will look like.

We Will Cover:

Initial self-tape submission

Callback tapes with notes

Zoom Producer Session & ``casting`` the role

Go from feeling anxious about this new way of auditioning to feeling empowered, creative and ready to book the Zoom (room)!

How It Works

WEEK 1: Open Calls

All students will submit their self-tapes for two roles for an upcoming pilot. During the Zoom session, Alyshia and Anna will review the tapes that are getting a “callback” and give notes/adjustments for a “callback tape”. All students who post their videos on FB will receive short feedback on their tapes.

WEEK 2: Callbacks & Co-Stars

Students who did not receive a callback will receive a set of co-star sides and submit a tape for one of the roles in the same pilot. Students who received a “callback” will get to submit their tapes with notes implemented. During the Zoom session, we will review callback tapes and see if notes were implemented and select actors for producer sessions. We will also cast the co-star roles, showcase those tapes and discuss the different processes of casting between network, cable, and film.

WEEK 3: Producer/Director Sessions

Students selected will receive new sides for the same role and will have a “virtual work session” live on Zoom. Students not in producer sessions will have the opportunity to be readers during this session.
