PLEASE TAPE INDOORS AGAINST A PLAIN WALL/ BACKGROUND-DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE CAMERA
*If self-taping with a smartphone or similar device (ie. tablet) please hold the device horizontally while recording.
FRAME: Please make sure that when taping the actual audition scenes, you are framed tight – just above the top of the head to the mid chest.
WALL: Find a quiet room with no background noise. The wall behind you should ideally be white, grey, blue or plain. Position yourself a few steps away from the wall to avoid shadows (Do NOT film in front of a window).
LIGHT: Make sure the main light source comes from behind the camera since you want the viewer to be able to see your face clearly.
CAMERA: Your camera should sit on a tripod to maintain a steady image. If you don’t have a tripod put your camera on a stable surface or have someone hold it steadily.
READER: Please have the person reading the other lines in the scene, stand next to the camera and out of the shot.
