Providing everything you need to make your self-tape an enjoyable and successful experience
Based in Southgate
Due to Covid-19, I won’t be able to provide any refreshments or snacks, so do make sure that you have something to eat/drink during your session if you feel you’ll need it.
Social distancing guidelines will be adhered to as best as possible and hand sanitiser will be provided for you to use during the session if/when needed.
2-metre distancing will be possible for the majority of the session, however, the room isn’t huge and there may be times when distancing is more challenging. Please bear this in mind and if you feel uncomfortable about this in any way, please do consider whether or not a studio session would be suitable for you.
What do I need to bring along with me?
You can bring along an extra copy of the script, or you can email me your sides so that I can either print them myself, or read them from my iPad. Also, please feel free to bring along any props that you might need for your self-tape.
How long do sessions normally last?
Sessions usually last between 1 hour minutes and 1.5 hours depending on how much you need to do. When booking, you will need to specify how much time you think you'll need.
How do I pay?
Payment for the session is taken via bank-transfer at the time of booking (an invoice will be provided). Please bring an extra £15 with you in case you wish to extend your booking by 30 minutes, as this will give you flexibility should you decide you need it.
What happens during the session?
During our session we we initially have a quick chat about the piece(s) and have a read through together. This won't be filmed, but it will give you the opportunity to re-familiarise yourself with the script and get a feel for it when reading with me.
We'll then get set up an ready to put you on tape. I'll make sure that the lighting and sound is on-point and then we'll begin.
The number of takes that we do is up to you. I'll often provide feedback and offer assistance where I can so that we get the absolute best from your session. Once we are happy with 2 or 3 good takes, we can then review them back and choose the one that you would like to have edited. If you need more takes, that's also fine - it's your session, so I cater to how you want t work.
Once we've selected which take(s) to use, I'll then edit and send them over to you (usually via WeTransfer) within 30 minutes.
Who reads in with me during the session?
During our session, it will be me who reads in with you. If you would like you bring your own reader along, you are welcome to do so.
- If you have any more questions about your self-tape session, please don't hesitate to get in touch and i'll be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
