Online Auditions & Self Taping

Presented by Magaly Colimon

This workshop will be held online via Zoom: 

In the era of COVID-19, casting directors and agents are making a dramatic shift to online auditions — including pre-recorded self-taped submissions and live auditions on videoconferencing platforms such as Zoom. Many acting gigs themselves are taking place in the virtual sphere, through live online events and self-recorded performances.

This workshop for the working actor will put you ahead of the curve in this new virtual era.

Whether you are planning to self-tape, preparing to audition live via Zoom with an agent, or if you are curious about how to adjust your live theater acting skills to satisfy the requirements of this medium — this is the class for you.

Topics addressed will include:

  • The elements of a strong self tape – editing, shooting, equipment, angle, how to save and label your file with your name/project name etc.
  • Acting with a remote fellow actor.
  • Translating your theater acting skills for the online medium
  • Practices and exercises allow for effortless, authentic on-camera performances.
