Actors!! Join Casting Directors, Erica S. Bream and Cara Chute Rosenbaum in a six-week ONLINE self-tape class!

About this Event


  • Self-taping is going to be the #1 audition technique tool needed (for the foreseeable future)
  • Self-taping is a different muscle than any other audition technique
  • This class includes a week on VIRTUAL CASTING! (Completely different skillset!)
  • Erica and Cara have seen hundreds of thousands of self-tapes over the course of their careers, (plus, you really can't beat the fun that's had when they teach together!)

This class will focus on self-taping for dramas and comedies, comparing/contrasting tone within each. Over the course of six weeks, Erica and Cara will guide actors through a myriad of exercises, providing ample feedback (and serious laughs) along the way.

  • Actors will self-tape at home (with material especially selected by Erica and Cara,) and participants will gather once a week in a LIVE online forum to watch tapes while Erica and Cara provide specific feedback and food for thought
  • Actors will have access to an online folder where all class work can be accessed. Erica and Cara will also post helpful clips, articles and references
  • Intimate class size to provide ample time and attention to each participant
  • Requirements: 1. A way to self-tape and 2. A good internet connection!
