HOW-TO SLATE FOR AN AUDITION

When asked to tape a separate slate (or ident) along with your audition self-tape, the Casting Director generally wants a very short video shot in landscape mode, consisting of:

  1. a full length shot of twins facing front, then to the side (for a profile)
  2. followed by close-up head and shoulders shot of both, each stating:
    • their full name and agent (TV Twins)
    • age and current height
    • where you’re from and/or live
    • type of twins you are (if applicable)
    • a 4-second close up of your hands (front and back)
