When you get a request for a self-tape audition, are you excited to get in front of the camera to show off your skills? Or do you dread setting up your own equipment at home, finding a reader, and editing your footage last minute on your tiny phone screen?
Zip Tapes takes the stress out of self-taping.
In your session, I will read with you, record your audition using studio quality equipment, edit your footage, and send your completed tape to you before you walk out the door.
That way you can focus on nailing your audition. All you have to do is show up, ready to work, and I’ll do the rest.
Studio quality without the studio price.
