How to slate/ident

Category: Self-taping

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 turning to each side (for a profile)- count to at least 3 before turning, also a 3-second close up of your hands (front and back)! You can both perform these actions together!
  2. Next we want a close-up head and shoulders shot of twins, 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)

My name is “Full Name”

My agent is TV Twins

I’m 12 years old and 5ft 6

I’m from Newcastle and live in London

This is my identical twin sister, “First Name”…

Camera/phone should NOT be hand held. Please rest it on a steady surface and film in landscape mode
