TESTIMONIALS

Amit Shah

"I've worked with Will a number of times for self-tape auditions. The service is second to none. The lighting makes the whole tape look very professional and filmic. The audio quality is clear and crisp even if taping an intimate or quiet scene. Will uses top quality cameras and lenses that draw the eye towards the actor in the foreground. On top of this Will is an intelligent and versatile actor and it makes all the difference when reading with someone who understands timing and the beats of a scene. Will is hugely accommodating and will adapt to the way you work in order to produce a professional looking self tape that you're happy with. On top of all this, his rates are extremely competitive."

"Will is great to work with! He's a calming influence to have on the other side of the camera, when the fear of having a lens in front of your face sets in. Being an actor himself he knows what it's like, giving you helpful and constructive suggestions when it's needed. Great quality tapes every time, sound, camera and lighting on point. "

As an actor himself, Will was happy to discuss the scene and character with me, and he really helped me narrow my focus when I was feeling nervous having not self-taped in a while. On top of all that, he makes for a great acting partner when needed! I was very happy with the footage I got and would highly recommend working with him"

"I had headshots with Will at Self Tape in November and the whole experience was great. Will was great at listening to what I wanted in my shots whilst also suggesting different things that produced lovely photos as well. He got lots of different shots for me in such a short time frame and I cannot recommend him enough, and also such a lovely guy! Will definitely be using him again in the future."

"I had such a wonderful time today. Thank you so, so much for an amazing shoot. I felt incredibly comfortable and in safe hands. It meant so much to me, especially being out of the game so long. Yourself and Declan were absolutely on point, super kind and so brilliant and helpful with the scene and direction. I felt really confident in knowing I was getting the best and all angles, literally, were being covered. So thank you both for a really great shoot and thank you also to Sarah for being so helpful, professional and completely on it! Best showreel experience ever!!!!"

Chiara D'Anna

"I cannot recommend William enough! I'm just so happy that I've found him... after struggling for years trying to work on my own at home! I truly believe that investing in a good self-tape is the best investment for an actor: it can make the difference between getting the part or not getting the part! 
And William's fee is absolutely affordable! 

He's very meticulous about light, sound, the correct frame and all the other technical aspects. On top of that, he's extremely helpful and supportive in getting the best out of each take.

William has the great ability of making you feel at ease and relaxed: so important when one is already anxious about the audition itself! So much so that I actually  had fun in doing something that usually makes me extremely anxious and apprehensive."

"Just wanted to say how great your service is. You managed to fit me in at really short notice, you were really well prepared, the quality of the tape was very professional indeed and you gave me a lot of  your time, you never rushed me. And all that for an extremely competitive price. As it happened I didn't get the job on that occasion (they gave it to an eighty year old in the end!) but I know that I was very much in the running for the part (they checked my availability on more than one occasion) and I - and my agent - were very happy with the tape that you did. So many thanks!" - Self Tape

"I have been working with Will for a good year now, he is my first port of call as soon as a self tape request comes through. 

He is wonderful to work with. Not only does he make sure I look and sound great he also makes sure I do my best read.

Being an actor himself he is always a great scene partner and really understands the pressure that can often come with taping. 

I honestly cannot recommend him enough."

Steve Such

"After looking at many different showreel companies, Self-Tape.co.uk provided the best quality results by far at a decent price.

Everything is just spot on. Sarah is a great contact from the start, advising on scenes and locations etc. Working with me on as many drafts as I needed to get the scenes right, then sending me the spotlight links of interested actors to be in the scene with. That alone was great, to get a glimpse of what its like to be a writer and CD.

Will and Declan were great on the day with loads of time to talk about the scripts, doing as many shots that we needed and just having fun with it. I'm really happy with the results and have swapped out some broadcast footage with these scenes on my final showreel."

"Thank you so much for these beautiful headshots Will, I love them and my agents are very happy too! The session was so relaxed and full of laughter which made all the difference in being comfortable in front of the camera.

"I’m so grateful I found Self-tape.co.uk. Professional, experienced and lovely to be around. They made the whole experience enjoyable and relaxed from start to finish.

Ophelia Mancini

"I just wanted to say a quick thank you! Since I've had my show reel so many more doors seem to be opening for me (well my show reel and a lot of hard work - I can promise you that!  ) It was a big contributing factor as to why my agent signed with me, has got me in the room for auditions and also helped me land my latest job which is playing Princess Jasmine in Dubai over Christmas! It was definitely one of the best decisions I've made for my career getting it done with you so THANK YOU! Lots of people comment on it saying how great it's been put together and how awesome it is so I just wanted to pass that on."

"From the first e-mail to accommodating my last moment self-tape request, it was arranged so swiftly and efficiently. 

Will was extremely helpful with valuable advice when needed and stepping in to read lines on top of all the rest he takes care of i.e.- lighting and sound- on point! I was able to watch all the takes and select the best with him. The clips were all ready and mailed back to me before I got home! 

If you're looking for a quality, efficient, fuss-free self-tape service- look no further! I will no doubt be coming back!"

"Working with Will on my showreel was fantastic. He is thorough, committed and supportive and gives very useful, clearly explained direction throughout the filming process. I am so thrilled with the finished article; not only did it arrive super quickly in my inbox, but it looks and sounds great. I am now confident and very proud when I send my new showreel to people!

Jack Newhouse

"Can’t say a bad thing about Will and the team, excellent to work with from start to finish, Will is very professional, friendly and efficient making full use of the time we have to create a scene. 
He is great person to work around on and off camera bringing a comfortable, relaxed setting for creative ideas to flow back and fourth between us. Will is great to work with from an acting perspective drawing in his own career experiences and is also very technical knowing where to place the best shots with great attention to detail. I’m impressed with the visual and sound quality and I got exactly what I wanted from my scenes to strengthen my showreel. There's a lot of competition out there but very pleased with my choice of company and I will definitely use again in the future, for self tapes/scene top-ups. Pleasure to work with you mate."

“My experience with self-tapes was very positive. They offer a professional efficient and creative process from beginning to end. Starting the creative process with Sarah was great as she was able to write scenes that matched my casting. The actual filming day itself with Will and the crew were hassle free and I had no worries which allowed me to just focus on being creative. Will's directing is calm and he conveys his vision perfectly on set and in the edit. I’d highly recommend using this service”

Cannot recommend Will at SelfTape enough! I have now had two showreels scenes and a self tape filmed with this incredible company, and on all these occasions I have received such professionalism, kindness and dedication from the whole team. Will is such a creative and talented individual who will give you endless support and guidance on your shoot, to ensure you deliver the best performance possible. As well as being a brilliant director, Will also knows how to approach things from an actors perspective which is such an important aspect to consider when choosing the right company to film your next scene. Will also has a brilliant team attached, including Sarah who has a brilliant vision of what concept will suit each individual before writing you your very own tailored script. The locations are always incredible and you will always be kept up to date with how your final edit is coming along. 

I am so glad I discovered Self-Tape! If you’re an actor looking for a self tape or new showreel, be sure to get in contact with this amazing company; you will NOT be disappointed!"

I would 100% recommend them to any of my friends and I’m positive they’d be just as happy as I am. They’re honestly just as invested in the scenes as you are and it shows in their work. I will happily return to them for any future tapings. ”

"Self-tape.co.uk is the perfect place to get your showreel done! Paul made sure he wrote exactly the scenes I wanted and the conversations with him regarding the scenes were very collaborative.

 

On the day of shooting, Will made me feel very comfortable and created a fun and relaxing atmosphere. They shot from many different angles and we talked about the journey the character goes through. I thought that was very special, because they were really trying to get the best possible performance out of me. 

 

I absolutely love the final product and watching it makes me so happy, cause it also reminds me of a great day of shooting the scenes. This company is the perfect mix of great communication, good vibes and getting a smashing showreel. I can only recommend doing your showreel with them!

I would most definitely work with him again and recommend his services to anyone looking to achieve professional, personalised scenes.

"I am a professional working actress from Germany and have been working in that business for a decade and now needed an English showreel to be able to get jobs all over the world so I went to London to get my reel done by Self-tape.co.uk.

I shot 3 scenes and a monologue with Will and his team and it's just been two amazing days!
Everything was super professional right from the start when I first contacted them. They listened very carefully to what I wanted for my showreel and were passionate about creating great scenes for me just the way I imagined. I can say that they really provide a great and fantastic service! They created scenes for me, matched me with some great scene partners my level and sorted locations for my scenes. They make sure everything is set so all you have to do is show up on set and start acting. The whole process was so satisfying in every single way and I realized pretty soon that I am in the right place with the right people. If you want to have your scenes done by real professional and experienced people that give you a fantastic time on set making sure you are 100% happy with your scenes and that help and push you to get better and better with your performance then go get your reel done at Self-tape.co.uk
Working with them was so much fun and reminded me of how much I love my job. Will and his team are highly professional, dedicated to their job, made an amazing job all day long and really love what they are doing and they turned out to be some of the best people I have ever worked with in more than 10 years of being a working actress.
They know exactly what acting, directing and a good scene is about and what you need as an actor to be comfortable on set and to trust in what they are doing.
It's been such a rewarding experience to work with them and I so enjoyed spending time with them, 'cause apart from being really professional they were also just super sweet, friendly and funny people that made me laugh a lot and feel like I am working with friends I have known for years. They made this a shooting I will always remember.
I will definitely come back for more scenes soon and I am so looking forward to the scenes we shot! These guys are awesome!
Thank you Will, Declan and Sarah! It has been my pleasure to work with you!
All the best to you, Victoria"
