STUDIO SERVICES

SELF TAPES

 

TAFTA offers professional audition self-tape filming and coaching with our audition experts.

Book an appointment and send your scripts through so we can familiarise ourselves with them. We are happy to provide professional reading or you can bring in your own reader if you prefer.

 

Our self-tape studio includes:

  • Lighting

  • Canon XA Cameras

  • Microphone

  • Large flat screen for playback.

 

Bathrooms with mirrors are available if you need to change between scenes.

 

If you need extra time to include coaching for those trickier roles, we are more than happy to help with that too.

 

Once we have shot your scene(s), we will:

  • Put together your best takes along with a name slate

  • Compress and upload the file(s) 

  • Email the link to your agent or whomever you wish, making sure everything meets the correct technical specs.

 

We are extremely flexible and will always try to accommodate out-of-hour tapes and same day requests.

SHOWREELS & SELF TAPE REELS

 

SHOWREELS

A showreel is a fantastic way to demonstrate your abilities to industry professionals. If you haven't got any solid footage behind you, but you'd like something to show around, or even just need an updated copy of your skills, TAFTA is the perfect place to get your showreels done.


You will come away with not only a professionally shot scenes but we also take the time to consider each individual’s personality and marketability, focusing on exactly how you want to portray yourself. No matter what level you are – whether you are just starting out or merely in need of refreshing your reel, then this is a great opportunity for you. Do yourself (and your agent) a favour and book now!

“For me, I need to be able to hear everything and see everything. I need it to be in a common file format that my computer can easily open. I prefer one or two simple scenes that don’t involve gun wielding or bloody-faced weeping. Those kinds of highly dramatic scenes tend to be difficult to gauge acting ability from when they’re taken out of the context of a film or TV series. Just a couple of scenes, if there’s a difference in tone between them, that’s useful, so a comedic scene and a scene from a drama is useful."
