What if I don’t own any filmmaking equipment?
Its totally fine. As long as you have one device which can capture video - such as a smartphone - you already have the tools to create a professional Self-Tape and inside this course you will gain the technique.
Can I still enrol in the course if I’ve never acted before?
Self-Tapes are the "new normal" in the entertainment industry and they're here to stay.
If you don't have a proper system for quickly creating Self-Tapes that Casting Directors love watching then you're taking yourself out of contention for so many roles.
With basic filmmaking tools widely available and extremely affordable, the only thing standing in your way of NAILING Self-Tapes every time is some simple skills that you will develop inside the course.
