SELF TAPE INSTRUCTIONS

Please tape with a neutral background.

Make sure you are well lit, that you are filming with your phone in the horizontal position and that we can hear you:)

Use a tri-pod or set your phone/laptop on something steady.

Please slate on a separate take/file: a wide shot of yourself. State your name, where you are located, and any scheduling conflicts you may have.

Please have a reader read all the lines that are not your character from off camera. (Make sure the reader isn’t louder than YOU) If you are reading for LAUREN or FLOPPY HAT the reader will not have lines but it will still be helpful to have someone cue you with action to respond to of course.

Please title your upload files as following: YourName_STORYTITLE_Role, ie: JaneDoe_THUMBS UP_FloppyHat
