“I’ve taken a lot of classes, but this one is a game-changer! Scott is so knowledgeable and gives such thoughtful, honest and relevant feedback. I couldn’t believe how adjusting small technical things in my self-tape process made such a HUGE difference! And in today’s world, this is a must!”
"I would highly recommend Scott Takeda’s self-tape course. I have learned a tremendous amount in such a short time that I can take with me to strengthen my craft. Scott’s director’s perspective broadens my actor’s point of view from in front of the camera to behind (which is a huge advantage...being able to see the image as a whole). The technical side is just as important as the performance. Together they make magic."
“I highly recommend Scott Takeda’s 101 Class regarding making your self-tape auditions great so you’ll book the job! Scott is a fine actor, director, Emmy winner, etc. He knows exactly what to do and how to do it-lighting, camera angles, position, slates, equipment, examples, etc. I am a working actress and had no idea that there was so much to learn. In this COVID-19 era of do-it-yourself-at-home, you will do yourself a huge favor taking Scott’s classes. He is kind, very knowledgeable, supportive, talented and truthful. I’m taking his 201 class next week.”
I am 100% positive I could not have booked it prior to taking your class. My lighting, background, set-up, eyelines, and relationships all came alive in my self-tape audition and virtual callback. I used everything you taught to present a quality package.
In the year of the pandemic, your class gave me something to grasp on to. It gave me goals, structure, and grounded me when I felt like our business might never recover. I am so grateful for that. I'm going to miss my homework!!!
Self-Tape 101 and 102 were eye opening! Not only did I get help with evaluating my space and lighting to make it more flattering, Scott helped me evaluate the script for cues and ideas to make my self tape more interesting and visually appealing. This class will take your self tapes to another level!
Scott is a phenomenal teacher because he is a working and booking actor! He'll give you a behind the scenes breakdown of his technical set up in 101, the same set up that he uses to book roles. If you're unsure whether or not to take the class, I'd say: Yes! You definitely should take it!
These courses are the difference between wishing you were getting booked more and realizing why you weren’t.
“Opened up a box of new ideas for self taping. Reinforced a few of my practices and corrected a couple of my miscues. The host was informative, friendly and fun !!"
