Self-tape audition tips:

  • Be familiar with or memorize the sides of the character you are auditioning for, provided here

  • 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. 

Important Information:

  • Please review the cast schedule here before submitting a self-tape.

  • For the audition wear simple, businesslike clothing with hair back and away from the face. 

  • Actors who are cast will be enrolled in 4 units of TFDP 170 in the winter quarter.
