Self Tape Gear For Actors
If you’re going to work in this industry and have any kind of career, the ability to self-tape is an absolutely essential skill for every actor. (especially post-COVID!) At the moment, almost all auditions are self-tapes, and running out to a studio constantly is expensive, and just not sustainable in the long run.
But if you can manage to use a smartphone okay, self taping isn’t that hard. Yes, there are a few tricks, and these are some of the tools that will make it easier. They’ll help you record a professional looking (and sounding) audition from your own home.
These are some of my top picks from Amazon for self tape gear. All of the choices are things that I either own, have tried out, or friends use, and love! By all means, find what works for you! …. that’s part of the creative process.
Voiceover Home Studio Essentials
Voiceover is one of my all time favorite side hustles for actors. You’re still working in media and in the performing arts industry, you can work from home… or anywhere! And you can make great money while setting your own hours. It is something that has kept me going for years, even during down times.
Almost all voiceover work is now being done from home, with the exception of specialty work and super high budget projects. So why not brush up on your skills and jump in!
