Self Taping: How to Get the Best Result

WHAT IS IT? A practical workshop looking at self taping and discussing the best way to go about it. HOW WILL IT WORK? A few days before the workshop you will be sent a scene from a TV or film script with a brief for you to self tape and upload. Suzy will then review and note your self tapes and, as a group, you will watch them and discuss the challenges and pitfalls. All Suzy’s workshops are run in a relaxed, supportive and positive environment allowing you to share and learn from everyone within the group as well as from Suzy’s feedback and notes. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? This workshop offers the opportunity to ‘practise’ this increasingly used technique and learn some simple dos and don’ts to increase your potential and allow your work to be seen in a more positive and professional light. Due to the necessary preparation time needed, the deadline for booking for this workshop will be FRIDAY 2 DECEMBER. Price: £30.
