LEARN ABOUT THE PROGRAM (watch the video below)


I have taken self tape workshops in New York City and they were good.  Mighty Tripod’s is even better.  David and Angela’s course is well organized and thought out. They cover all aspects of self taping — the technical challenges as well as the acting challenges.  They cover all genres of auditions including commercial copy, scene work, and monologues. The didactic approach of pre-recorded lectures, on-line classes and individual notes on each student’s homework covers all the bases.  Individual private sessions on each homework assignment, every week, written AND live, on-line, is unique as far as I know, and the quickest way I know to achieving excellence in this critical skill set. – Rich Snyder
The Self-Tape Academy has been a great way to build and engage in acting, especially during this time of social distancing. As most in the industry know, self taping is becoming the new norm, and this class is a great way to get a jump on what is becoming routine. The academy provided amazing advice towards the video set-up, editing, and of course, acting. The class has a good variation of skill levels where you can choose how much of a challenge you take on in different self-tape scenes. As a beginner, I have found their feedback and notes in class to be invaluable. Their knowledge and experience is a direct source from someone who has been in the industry and has seen the move towards self-taping. During this difficult time of distancing (Spring 2020), the class has been a major outlet and way to build skills within acting. – Dorian Dolleman
This class has been exactly what I have needed to help improve my self-taping skills for auditions. I have especially appreciated “Coach’s Corner” where we get one-on-one sessions with David or Angela. The one-on-one sessions have been insanely helpful in helping me hone my craft while also learning to audition within my own space.  Additionally, this class is helpful in developing a proper home set-up for self-tapes and learning basic editing tricks when submitting for auditions I have felt immensely supported throughout this process and I feel comfortable asking them questions I typically might not ask other instructors. They will go the extra mile for you 🙂

In this online course, you will learn how to master the self-tape audition. Hear me now, believe me later, self-taping is here to stay. In order to compete, you need to know how to execute outstanding self tapes from your home, even when you only have a narrow window of time to complete the task.

As actors, educators, and producers (we also cast and direct), our unique and informed perspectives will help you nail your next self-tape, and boost your confidence whenever you have an audition.

In this interactive course (virtual classes with the Zoom conference app & virtual private coaching with the instructors), you get one-on-one time with Angela and David. You will learn:

  • How to set up your space.
  • How to light your space.
  • Info about cameras, editing, and microphones.
  • What the industry expects.
  • How to slate like a pro.
  • How to audition and act on camera.
  • How to execute amazing reads for commercial and theatrical auditions.
  • And much more.


We can’t wait to work with you and help you reach your goals!
