Self-taping workshop

By popular demand we will be holding workshops that cover the entire self-taping process in an easy step-by-step practical course.

Each workshop will be friendly, informal and very hands on – we will be focussing on the technical aspects of making your self-tape look and sound as professional as possible and the best ways of getting it to a casting director in a format that will make them love you.
