Sat 6 May 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
Having a great self-tape, headshot and showreel really helps with screen auditions and every actor knows that good self-tapes, headshots and showreels are vital tools for their career. And yet actors often have to rely on other people to help them generate these tools.
So what is the best way to go about creating brilliant self-tapes, headshots and showreels that will work really well for the actor without breaking the bank?
Writer/Director Christopher Nicholson has worked for 27 years directing actors to camera and often holding his own screen acting auditions. Christopher’s lifetime passion for photography made his side-career as a fashion photographer since 1990.
