“Hey Kate, I just wanted to let you know that I was cast from the self tape you did for me last week. They offered me a different role from the one I auditioned for. It films next weekend. Have a great weekend!” — Steve L.
I love hearing success stories like this one! And this was Steve’s SECOND booking from one of our self tapes! Do you have a self tape success story? Email me! Tell your actor friends! So much of this crazy business we’re all in comes from word of mouth. If you’ve booked something recently, I’d love to write about it here. It helps other actors know that, yes, it is possible to book from self tapes, so they shouldn’t just disregard them.
It also helps me know things are on track for my clients. My goal with this business is to get you a callback - even better, a job. Recently after a session an actor asked, “Does anyone ever actually book anything from self tapes?” The answer: they do! One of my favorite things is reading an email from a client telling me they got the gig. I want YOU to be that client. So please share those stories, and keep submitting those tapes.
