Ongoing: Self-Tape Study + Money 101

Self-Tape Study w/Shaun McComb

The Self Tape Study is an online acting intensive which aims to make the self tape experience as gratifying as possible.

The coaching sessions are primarily one-on-one, therefore the curriculum is co-curated by actor and coach. Scene selection and execution, homework, exercises, self tape assignments, and schedule and deadlines are all personalized to the aspirations and practical needs of the actor. *Audition coaching naturally folds into this format. If an audition comes up, let’s work it.

The Study also offers practices that address story flow, scene analysis, character connection, relationship bonding and environmental awareness for playing in the self tape arena. Fostering prep processes that quickly channel the actor’s imagination into precise play is the Study’s main objective. There are many goals, of course, but that’s the big one.

“I was thrilled to participate in Cynthia’s workshop. This topic is not often discussed. As actors our income is very inconsistent and Cynthia created concrete steps on what to do with every paycheque to stay organized come tax season.”
