  • As the film and television audition process evolves, self-taping has become more and more prevalent. It requires physical tools and a performance skillset that differ from an actor's usual audition technique. Erica is dedicated to helping actors gain confidence in every aspect of their self-tape experience.
  • For this class, Erica will provide material ahead of time for the students to self-tape. She will go over the tapes in class, providing technical, as well as performance feedback. Actors will then have the opportunity to re-work the scenes in class to find the performance that will help them stand out in a sea of self-tapes.
