The time to perfect the self-tape process isn't the day before that big audition is due! The self-tape clinic is one component of our strategy for empowering our students to be as brilliant in their self-taped auditions as they are in their in-class scene work.
5 PM to 8 PM
A 2x-a-month class designed to help students level-up their self-tapes in the virtual age of casting. Students will be assigned audition material from currently-casting TV and film projects, tasked with submitting a self-tape before each class. During our sessions, we will review tapes, addressing what is effective or not—both in terms of performance and the technical aspects of recording—and rework the scenes. Additionally, we share & analyze tapes that booked jobs and look at what sets them apart.

What Students Say about The Creative Lab:
"Learning the basic tenets of Stanislavski's Active Analysis in Lab has completely changed the way I rehearse. It's become more about exploring, experimenting, and playing as opposed to getting it right. Process over outcome."
