Columbia College Chicago

Free Summer Film School (for Actors!): The Art of the Self-Tape

Even before the whole world went virtual due to social distancing, self-taped auditions were already becoming the new norm for being seen by casting directors hundreds or thousands of miles away. Now, they're the industry standard for theatre, film, and TV. So, how do you make sure you're presenting yourself in the best light possible - literally and figuratively - when filming your own audition? Join a roundtable of entertainment industry experts as they answer your questions about:

- The virtual casting process

- Techniques to set yourself up for the best performance possible

- How to self-tape on a low (or no) budget

After the workshop, every participant will be provided with audition sides that they can film and submit to the panel for feedback! Featuring Chicago actor Phoebe González (Chicago Med, Steppenwolf Theatre Company), and casting experts Noel Henry (Gray Talent Group) and Noelle Humbert (Gray Talent Group, Noelle Humbert Casting). This event is part of the "Free Summer Film School" series.
