Self-Taping Instructions

Follow these simple steps when taping yourself:

  • Frame: Use a medium to close shot, approximately chest-high.
  • Background: Shoot on a plain, well-lit background and make sure your audio is clear.
  • Slate: Name slate at the end with a full-body shot. Do not pan up and down, if possible.
  • Reader: Use a reader. Another actor is best.
  • Takes: Shoot only one take of each scene, unless otherwise requested.
  • Sides: Obtain sides from your agent or at
  • Format: Save as MOV or MP4 files, not WMV.
