In this six-class programme we’ll be taking a look at self-tapes and how to make your tapes the best they can be, from getting the script to sending your tape to a casting director. By analysing scripts, exploring physicality, looking at how space, tension and elements can help you find a character, and incorporating improvisation, you'll be able to approach self-tapes with a broader set of skills and greater confidence.


You’ll have the opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into practice by making self-tapes throughout the course and receiving individual feedback on each of them.  


Expect a fun, practical and accessible class, where you have the space to make mistakes, ask questions and try out new things. 


Suitable for everyone: drama school applicants, acting students and graduates.
