"I cannot tell you how much your class has meant to me. Not only did you completely revolutionize the way I self-tape, making my brand more professional and marketable, you also brought your joy of movie making to the class. As you said, self-tape is really just making mini movies. And I have grown from dreading putting an audition on tape to looking forward to each opportunity.
I booked a national commercial... and I am 100% positive I could not have booked it prior to taking your class." - Anastasia Davidson, Self Tape student and working actor
SELF TAPE 101 - “Takeda’s knowledge of the business is extensive and at times, mind-blowing! This class is a MUST-TAKE for anyone who wants to play ball in the new post-pandemic auditioning reality” - Sarah Minnich, SAG-AFTRA
