**Self-taping instructions**

Categories: Castings, Self-taping

If you’ve been asked to self-tape, we want to ensure you have all the information you need.

Read these self-taping FAQs prior to starting!

  1. Tapes should be in landscape mode, with camera/phone resting on a steady surface – never handheld – framing head and shoulders – we need to see your eyes and face – in a well lit room.
  2. Do not SHOUT and do not rush – take it slow, steady and confidently – see taping lines below.
  3. Always start with an ident and send a headshot/selfie taken at time of taping.
  4. All files should be named: “Chester Wright – ROLE (TV Twins)
  5. Read the instructions from the Casting Director thoroughly and check the deadline – try to submit media in good time so agent can preview and ask you to redo if needed.
  6. If relevant, state that you’re available for all dates (highlight non-availability), and whether you have any conflicts.
  7. If asked to complete any forms, your agent is TV Twins, our email address is info@tvtwins.uk, mobile is 07752440376
  8. Upload everything requested to Audition tapes – Dropbox or via WeTransfer.com to media@tvtwins.uk – unless specifically requested otherwise.

Taping lines: We know sometimes it’s a lot, but it’s best to be off-book (memorised). We don’t want to hear anyone else reading your lines, but someone else can read any other lines off-camera but close enough so we can hear them. Your lines could be propped up next to the camera so we still see your eyes and face while speaking them, but if you do it a few times you’re sure to pick them up and be off-book!

Please let us know when you have completed uploading your audition files!
