Self Tape Video Auditions that BOOK!


Here at The Creation Station Studios, we aim to make the entire process a easy and stress free!

As the entertainment industry continues to grow, actors are being asked, with greater frequency, to record their own self tape video auditions and create their own marketing materials. Casting directors, agents, managers, and producers want your self tape video auditions to look and sound great. The self tape video audition is a different beast from the live/in-person audition. The viewer, your agent, the casting director, and/or the producer will have an opinion of the video’s picture & sound quality, which ultimately is a reflection of you/your brand. It is commonly heard within industry that poor quality self tape auditions may not even be submitted by representatives or seen by casting directors or producers, due to the negative impact poor quality self tapes and meterials can have one’s chances of success. Poor video and/or sound can distract from your performance and is ultimately a reflection of you and your representative(s). With the amount of technology at our disposal and the competitive nature of the entertainment industry, a professionally taped self audition has become the entertainment industry standard.


What can you expect when you Book a Session at The Creation Station Studios?

Regardless of whether it is your first self tape audition or your hundredth, we understand that it’s all about delivering memorable performances and having fun while doing it. Our team of working actor and professionals have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to professionally record your self tape audition, voice over audition, slate shots, and more. We record all of our footage on production grade cameras with prime canon lenses, and record our audio with production grade microphones. When you come to one of our locations to record, our team members will ensure that your self tape’s picture and sound are finely tuned so that your self tape audition pops/stands out! All footage is then edited on the industry’s latest editing software and then exported to you and/or whoever you desire (casting, your agent, your manager, etc..) via a convenient one click downloadable Wetransfer.com link.
