Self-tape audition tips:

  • The Setting: Use a quiet room with little to no background noise. The wall behind you should ideally be a plain color (ex. white or blue). Try to position yourself a few feet away from the wall to avoid shadows. The light should come from behind the camera.
  • Framing: Film horizontally, zoom in to frame yourself from the top of your head to just below your shoulders. 
  • Reader: Please have another person read the lines from the sides with you from off-camera.
  • Remember to slate: Introduce yourself on camera with your name, height, where you’re based, and where you are currently located. Please include a full-body shot.

Please note:

  • For the audition wear simple, businesslike clothing with hair back and away from the face.
  • Cast members will be enrolled in 1 (New Play Festival) or 2 (Playworks) units of TFDP 170 in the spring quarter.
  • Students can participate in both Playworks and New Play Festival (if cast) to earn more production units.
