self tapes and no responses

Is it just me or has this self tape thing got out of hand, over and over again I have been asked to tape, 2 or 3 sides, do them on time in a professional format and hear absolutely nothing, you know what I am also busy but never so busy that I cannot find time to be courteous, really you want to be professional then reply

Agreed. Hopefully it's not some kind of AI dragnet.

Nope, you’re not alone Patric. I’m seeing this more and more my argument is if you need more than 2 pages to work out if someone is right for a part or not then it’s a problem. Anything above that turn turns into a short film. We’re not expected to just be actors anymore, we’re expected to be filmmakers, editors, sound designers. I’ve stopped doing them if it’s over 2 pages.

That’s like Tesco asking you to do an unpaid half day shift to see if you’re right for a role as part of the interview. I’ve made complaints sometimes to companies after if I don’t hear anything, frankly it’s getting ridiculous!!
