Self Tape Tips!

Please do whatever is easiest for you. We want to see your talent, not your producing skills! But below are some points to be aware of.

Lighting
If possible, please make sure there is a light source in front of you, not behind you. Natural light is best, but otherwise a lamp or other lighting you have in your space will work.

Orientation
If you are recording on your phone, please hold it horizontal instead of vertical so the display is widescreen.
Please try to do one take of the full script.

Technology
File type should be MP4, MOV, WMV, or AVI
Please label the file with the talent’s name and role.
You may send as 1 file or multiple files. Whatever is easier. If you send multiple files, please make sure to label clearly.

Direction:
Tape should be about 2 minutes long (but don’t overthink it!).

Please tape as a group (whether a couple or a family)

Framing – When you are speaking, please frame it so it is shoulders to the top of your head. Afterwards (if possible) please also step back so we can see your full body. Turn profile and profile the other way.

Slate:
Name
Age (if under 18)
Where are you located?
Are you a mother, father, grandma or grandparent? Tell us about your family.

If you are submitting with a spouse, tell us your relationship.

Tell us about how you are as a gift giver?

What’s your favorite thing to give or receive?

Pretend to open a gift and show us your reaction. Imagine it’s a box full of gourmet treats.

Tell us who you would like to send a gourmet food gift to, what type of gift you’d like to send them, and why?
