About This Video

There are numerous reasons that you may not be able to make the audition, but if the producer or director gives you the “green light” to self-record your audition, consider it a blessing and take full advantage of the chance! Make it your best!

From the best cameras, microphones, lighting, backgrounds, tripods, software and even how to use them, Dave Thomas gives you a comprehensive 45-minute long look at the tips and tricks to get the most out of your self-recorded audition…and how to save money while doing it.

Many may think it’s as easy as throwing up a smart phone selfie-style and pressing record, but Dave will show you how to make your recording pop and stand out from the rest. With feedback from industry insiders coupled with Dave’s experience as a News Director, Film Director, Producer, and Filmmaker, he’ll show you how to take the next step in your career.

This video and Google Slide presentation combination is interactive, full of links for even more information, funny and easy to follow. It’s also the nexus of 25 years of Dave’s unique experience both in front of and behind the lens of the camera.
