Self Tapes

Self Tapes

When making the decision to shoot it yourself or to work with an industry professional, think about where you’re going to deliver your best work. Even though you may feel comfortable with your friend at the helm, they may not be giving you the best input to help your performance.

CBSI Self-Tapes are more than just taped auditions. Every self-tape is accompanied by in-depth, one-on-one private coaching!

We’ll unpack your character

We’ll breakdown and assist you with your integration of the character you’re auditioning for

We’ll break down the scene and unfold invaluable insights into the story.



If you’re not fully memorized, we’ll also work with you on how to get off of the page quickly so you can give a more powerful read. We’ll shoot your audition with a Sony 4K camera, record it with a lav or shotgun mic (depending on your scene), light it beautifully with a full LED lighting kit, and edit down your best take and slate. We’ll then compress and download your scene to your flash drive or transfer it to where ever it needs to be sent.


Set up your private self-tape sessions HERE… and you’ll be on your way to killer auditions!
