Here’s a short self-tape guide we made with Equity, the UK union for professional performers. Hope you enjoy it!
Don’t forget to read our detailed newly updated Self-Taping Guide, and if you truly want to become an expert self-taper please do check out our revolutionary practical course The Acting Habit – the feedback from participants has been amazing.
Our interactive online course is going extraordinarily well. There has been an abundance of creativity, passion and learning going on.
There has also been a tremendous amount of sharing when it comes to the technical side of self-taping – cameras, tripods, lighting, editing equipment and compression techniques have all been discussed and procedures refined.
One of the participants – James Chalmers – has very kindly shared his incredibly effective yet inexpensive set-up for his home self-tape studio. If you ever need to self-tape then this is five and a half minutes of essential viewing:
Thank you so much for making this guide James!
