Develop technical and creative skills for your self-tape auditions in this practical workshop with a film director who will boost your confidence. Small group of approx. 8 students

This is a Self-Tape Workshop from director, Becky Sharpe, covering the technical and creative concerns of Self-Taping for Auditions. The workshop will be held on saturday 1st December from 10.30am to 4.30pm to work with a small group of actors to develop their self-tape abilities.

The workshop includes:

• Shot size and framing

• How to get good audio

• Which microphone to get on a tight budget?

• Selecting backgrounds

• Basic lighting

• How to work with a tripod, a mini-tripod or no tripod

• Eyeline work

• What Self-Tape equipment to buy on a budget

• Introduction to Scene Preparation for Self-Tape

You will develop your skills in self-directing which is needed for Self-Taping, your technical abilities in recording image, audio and an introduction to editing a Self-Tape, and there will be some Fast Scene Analysis work so that when your agent sends you a Self-Tape to do at 5pm and they want it first thing in the morning, you can do it and still get a good night's sleep!

The Self-Tape Workshop is £90 for the whole day workshop.

"Becky Sharpe - you're an absolute JOY to work with. I feel like in such a short time of knowing you you've been stamping out my life-long bad behaviours (like putting myself down or being negative) and building my acting confidence and technique with each session. You're the "stage mom" I never had. So basically... thank you!!"

“I loved attending Becky Sharpe’s Screen Acting Workshop Over the weekend!! I had no idea what to expect but I loved every minute. Becky is awesome she is just what I need in a teacher and have been searching for for a long long time! She’s a great mentor/director and teacher - I learnt so much on every level and I love how she makes you feel empowered to be yourself on camera. Her technique is so refreshing and inspiring I can’t wait to train more with Becky!

I have been training over the past 8 years and trained mainly in Meisner but Becky uses a variety of techniques to get the best out of you as an actor. And what I love most is that she inspires you and helps you work out your individual technique which I think is the most important thing for an actor. It’s very empowering and I love also how she is brutally honest and prepares you for being on set and for auditions and gets you making your own decisions for yourself from the word go. It’s really empowering and enlightening and I couldn’t recommend Becky enough. Thank you so so much – I’m so happy I met you and I can’t wait to learn more"

"I had an absolutely fab time working with Becky during her course of screen acting workshops. Such a fab director who understands the actors needs - coming from a theatre background I found this incredibly helpful when working in front of the camera. I also had a breakthrough in the last session which felt wonderful! Thank you Becky for all of your help x"

“A lovely screen acting class with Becky. The regular acting training helps me remove the corporate mask I have worn in the past during my corporate career. In some professions, we suppress our emotions and thus wear a mask.

However, acting is not like any other profession, the beautiful art that we love. I have found that by training regularly in Becky’s sessions, it helps me become emotionally naked and vulnerable. One of the strong attributes of training with Becky is her style of teaching helps you relax, be in the moment and access your emotions. Looking forward to continuing the journey and seeing some further great work in class.”

“Going to Becky Sharpe’s workshop last weekend was incredible. I’ve missed acting so much, and I haven’t been doing acting for a long time as I was studying dance at university. I was very nervous getting back into it. Becky helped me restore the confidence and the push I needed. She has definitely made me realise that “YES, THIS IS WHAT I DEFINITELY WANT TO DO AND SUCCEED IN”.

Becky has this incredible aura where she is very straightforward and to the point of what you need to do and how to do it. Becky is also very insightful and I truly believe she knows what she is doing. A very talented person who truly cares about her students. Inspirational and worth going to her workshops, she is truly dedicating her time for her students and helping us in what we need in order to achieve our dreams. Thank you so much Becky, I really appreciate it. I do hope to see you soon, much love!”

"Becky delivers great sessions that allow you to try new things and feel comfortable in doing so. You get lots of time in front of the camera and just as much time to watch yourself back and observe your work. Becky puts everyone at ease and you always leave having learnt something valuable to go away and think about and work on."

Daniel Woodger - Actor

"Becky is an excellent holistic teacher. Whilst the main focus of the course is screen acting she also encourages students to look after themselves and suggests materials to help them. Her group is supportive and I my confidence has grown as my course has progressed. I would recommend Becky's classes to anyone"
