You have been asked to submit a taped audition for a role in a film. Perhaps it’s a short film. Perhaps it’s a feature. Maybe it’s a paid gig. Maybe not. Regardless of the particulars, you’re going to want to create a process for how you will get that audition taped and get it to the decision makers.
In most markets, someone has the equipment, expertise, and studio space to record you professionally. It could cost you anywhere from $25 to well over $100. It’s always an advantage to rely on these people for quality taped auditions, but you may decide to go it alone if funds are low or there’s no one in your local area who can do it.
Now the ways you execute the steps I am about to share may change. The change may involve people, place, or thing. The people who help. The place where you record. The thing you record with. The order of the steps may be different for you, depending on your needs, but the process overall should not change. In some cases, you will be working on multiple steps at the same time, beginning one then moving onto the next before that previous one is finished.
