This is an in-depth explanation from Nicole & Robin at Stella Nova Casting, two actors/casting directors who have been using self-taping as part of their own auditioning & casting process for many years. We have first-hand knowledge of what works and what doesn't. We have seen the need rising for self-taping in the industry, and we thought that a class on this topic would no longer be needed. Until we cast our most recent back to back projects and we realized we are still getting a lot of the same mistakes from beginner and seasoned acting professionals with their at-home self-tapes.
We know there are a lot of Youtube videos out there with self-taping suggestions and after watching a bunch myself, I was still wondering why we are still getting bad tapes. Then I realized a few things. First, some videos are just about technical suggestions with no deeper explanations. Second, other videos are not from industry professionals receiving self-tapes so they do not have the same feedback we have heard over the years from our decision-makers. And that makes all the difference. In this course, we are encouraging you to step into our shoes. You have the acting talent already. Now open your mind to the technical side and the psychology behind the business. This course will be filled with reasons why we need things a certain way and how it helps you get closer to booking the job.
Who this course is for:
- Theater Majors

What does ten years of working together, acting together, and crushing happy hours together look like? Those cool chicks up top. ;) Meet Nicole Dionne & Robin De Lano.
After a few years of casting skinny pirates for the Caribbean, bikini clad models for Entourage, and many other spirited background characters, we decided to leave the colorful world of extras and leap into principle casting!
Once we took that jump we were off and running; attracting indie feature films, commercials, pilots, shorts, music videos and new media projects.
We won't let any walls stop us. Our projects span the globe from commercials in Poland to features in Canada. There isn't any territory we can't conquer.
What’s next? Our own You Tube Channel? Probably...Let's start with this class and go from there.
