The Self-Tape Academy is designed to help you set up your at-home audition space and teach you how to stand out during your on-camera auditions.

MTAS Self-Tape Academy

  • Have you ever wondered if your self-tapes were up to industry standards?
  • Do you want to learn how to make your auditions from home stand out with lighting, audio, and truthful acting choices?
  • Do you want tips and tricks from actors/producers working right now in the film/TV/commercial market?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this academy is for you.

The self-tape is the most common way to audition currently, so if you don't know how to create a compelling and up-to-industry-standard video from home, you will have trouble getting work as an actor.

"I learned so much about how to build a better self tape audition. Even though the class was focused mainly on creating self tape auditions, the little bit of coaching on my acting helped make me a better on camera actor as well. I highly recommend taking what classes you can from Mighty Tripod."


Age: 14+

5 Zoom Classes: 1-2 hours each

Weekly 1:1 Zoom Coaching for all students

Levels: Beginner+

We will teach you how to set up your "studio"

Younger actors can contact us for training!

Why you should take this course

Self-taping is here to stay, and the modern on-camera actor needs to know how to set up and excel in there at-home taping studio or "Zoom Room."

Actors are not only taping auditions from home, they are auditioning and performing over video conference calls, and this virtual course, taught by MTAS founders Angela DiMarco and David S. Hogan, is built to help you thrive in this new virtual environment.

We have been offering our Self-Tape Academy since March of 2020, and students have raved about its effectiveness. Not only are we providing information and insights about all the technical aspects of the self-tape and the Zoom Room, but we are providing one-on-one coaching, each and every week, where students received feedback about their setup and their acting choices.

This course is fun, exciting, and filled with information and tools you can immediately apply during your next self-tape or Zoom-based audition.

Final Thoughts

Mighty Tripod Acting Studio was founded in 2012, and since opening our doors, we have taken great pride instructing, challenging, and uplifting actors from all walks of life. We believe in and promote inclusivity, and we work hard to create spaces - virtually and in-studio - where actors feel comfortable, supported, and inspired. If  you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
