Gain the confidence and understanding you need to master your self tape auditions.

Self taping is one of the most important skills that actors need to thrive. In this course you'll watch Margie coach an actor to quickly create an amazing and deeply rewarding self tape audition.

Self taping has become the default way that auditions are done. Here in LA my team of world class teachers and I have been working closely with students and celebrity clients to help them adapt and thrive in this new environment.

The Art of the Self Tape is a video course that takes you on a deep dive into everything we’ve learned about this essential set of skills. You’ll get eye opening and candid interviews with actors and casting directors to give you unique and valuable perspectives from all different angles.

The most valuable part of this course is you get to be right there in the room with me and see how I coach someone through the entire self tape process.

You’ll see a very talented actor film a self tape audition then watch as I coach him through a highly creative and personal self tape transformation. Together we explore the psychology, imagination and mind of the character and create the life in vivid detail.

Then you’ll see the incredible results as the same actor films the self tape again with all new levels of conviction, specifics and authenticity. You’ll see how he starts with a good audition and turns it into something really special. You’ll discover how rewarding and fulfilling a self tape audition can truly be when you connect deeply and fully live the life of the character.

Usually these coaching sessions are intimate and private one-on-one experiences only available to professional acting students and celebrities here in the LA area. But now with this new video course you can join us in the room and gain access to the same lessons and insights.

Smart actors are getting serious about their self tape skills. My team and I are very excited about helping you fall in love with the self tape process.

To your success!
