INFORMATION

+ WHY ONLY $15?

Because we created the studio for you. We have had the great fortune to tape literally thousands of auditions. We are a studio of actors and our goal is to give you the highest professional product at a price that won't break the bank. Plus you pay when you book because we don’t tack on fees at the end of your session. You deserve a chance to achieve your dreams without going broke, and when our clients book jobs from our tapes we truly feel as excited for them as we would for ourselves.

+ COACHING

We have two options for coaching. You may either book a 30 minute coaching session or an hour long coaching session by clicking the associated button on the self-taping page. As a reminder, coaching is NOT available Sundays. All coaching sessions include a tape regardless of whether the coaching is for a tape submission or an in-room audition.

+ TURNAROUND

Need a fast turnaround? No problem! Book a 30-minute session, tape for 20-minutes, and leave us the last 10-minutes to edit - for no extra charge! No charge for re-edits! Tape will be transmitted upon completion. Standard turnaround window is 1-2 hours.

+ EQUIPMENT

High quality camera, lighting kit, and boom microphone.

+ DELIVERY & TRANSMISSION

All files will be sent to you via WeTransfer. If you need help downloading your file once sent to you, please click here.

+ CAN I BRING MY LAPTOP OR A FLASH DRIVE / SD CARD AND JUST HAVE THE FILES DUMPED TO ME?

Truthfully, transferring raw files takes a LOT longer than our normal editing process and we just can't accommodate the time it would take to transfer. Plus, we don't give out raw, unedited footage. We don't allow clients to bring their own SD card because of potential compatibility issues with our equipment. We are happy to give you separate clips for you to piece together, if that is your preference, but we will process them through our editing software for QC and for rapid WeTransfer transmission.

+ CAN I BRING MY OWN READER? OR MY ACTING COACH? OR MY MOM WHO'S A COACH?

Professional readers - who are working actors! - provided. We provide one reader per self-tape session to read all other roles. Other readers besides ours are NOT permitted (this INCLUDES virtual / FaceTime readers). Our readers are experienced cold-readers and also know how to pace auditions to optimize your session. No outside coaches are permitted and parents are asked to wait outside the taping room to reduce distractions during taping. Thank you for your cooperation!

+ DO YOU HAVE WEEKEND SELF-TAPING HOURS?

We do indeed! You can check our availability using the blue booking buttons on this page.

+ CANCELLATIONS, RESCHEDULES, & LATE ARRIVALS POLICY

  • Look, we get it. Life happens! Cancellations and reschedules are part of the entertainment industry. Reschedules and Cancellations can be made within 6-hours of your appointment time - just use the “Change/Cancel” link in your booking confirmation email. Cancellations made more than 6 hours prior to appointment will be fully refunded. Cancellations made less than 6 hours prior to the appointment will forfeit the full session fee. Absolutely no exceptions.
  • We allow up to 2 reschedules of all scheduled appointments respective of rescheduling time limits. We do not allow rolling appointments. Appointments rescheduled more than twice will be canceled and refunded.
  • There is no grace period. Clients who arrive more than 15 minutes late to appointment with notice may be permitted to tape, depending on audition length. Clients who arrive more than 15 minutes late without providing us notice will not be permitted to tape.

+ CAN I TAPE MORE THAN ONE AUDITION?

Due to tight scheduling and in order to maintain our cost, sessions may consist of one audition taping. Time permitting, under-5 or other co-star auditions less than 1-page may be taped as well - at no additional charge. If you have an additional project you are wishing to tape that is more than 1-page in length, please add an additional 30-minutes.

+ CAN I CHOOSE MY TAPING LOCATION?

Because of staffing/scheduling of other services we do not allow clients to pick their taping location. But don't worry! You'll get the exact same service at either location with a great finished product. Plus, our locations are only a quarter of a mile apart so no need to worry about a longer drive!

+ CAN I CHOOSE MY READER’S GENDER?

Because we work to be inclusive and because we have a rotating roster of readers, we cannot accommodate specific reader gender requests. Thank you in advance for your understanding!

+ MINORS

We have extensive experience working with child actors. During audition taping, parents are requested to remain outside the taping room to avoid possible distraction. All minors must be accompanied by a guardian, including actors who are Legal 18.

+ PARKING

FREE street parking right out front! Park and walk right in to tape!

+ SLATESHOTS

Yes, we do that! We will do a maximum of 3-looks per 30-minutes session, with a max of 2 takes per look. As a tip, keep in mind what you'd like your SlateShots to communicate. We think it's wise to have at least one solid versatile theatrical SlateShot and one solid commercial SlateShot. Other things to consider are specific character typings for shows/projects you might try to target (i.e. medical, procedural, guy/girl next door, edgy, etc.). The more specific you can be with character SlateShots, the better. Introducing yourself is great, having a specific key phrase for a specific character slate is better :)

+ VOICEOVERS

We can do that for you! Exported as MP3 and compressed. Recorded on a shotgun microphone.

+ MUSICAL THEATER

Need to sing for a Musical Theater Audition? No problem! Select the ‘Musical Theater Audition’ button to see all available appointments. These sessions are 1 hour long, which will give extra time for setup and sound check in our main studio space. Feel free to bring your guitar, keyboard, or an audio track on your phone or iPad for us to play through our speaker.
