SI_Coaching

Free coaching for professional film and television auditions

Coaching can be expensive. In some cases it can be as much s $75 or more. Actors often have to ask themselves “Is this one of the big ones I should take more seriously?”

What if coaching was included at no additional charge? What if every single audition could be treated like “the big one?”

We see every audition as that chance.

Free SELF-TAPES for professional film and television auditions

Even prior to the pandemic, the world have been evolving to more technological solutions in all industries. Film and television isn’t any different. This specific skill can make or break an audition. If it’s not lit right, framed properly, or of the sound is off… it can negatively affect an otherwise beautiful performance. Don’t give them any reason to say no. Always deliver your “A” game. Every single time.
