    Hi!

    Here is a compilation of both of my takes. This was a really fun start to the Self Tape Challenge! I loved making up different characters and exploring what kind of choices they would’ve made in this scenario. Looking forward to your feedback and to the rest of the challenge.

      Yay Bea!!!

      What a great start. I liked what you did and the choices you made, and your lighting and sound are good for a Self-Tape. I liked take #2 the best. I’m looking forward to your next one!

    Practice script #1

    I would love to hear some feedback on how I can improve! I was a bit nervous.

      Nice job Angelina. I liked the first take the best. I liked your nervousness you had going on. I know you said you were nervous, and if you didn’t use that in your scene, do that next time, because it was really nice. Moving forward I’d like to see a little more urgency, and maybe look around a bit more and take your time. Your lighting and sound are both good. I know it’s just a practice script, but I would wear a different shirt as well. All in all it’s a great start!

      Congratulations

      -Dan

      Great start Cindy! I liked the tone of this. I would try a bit more urgency and be a bit more suspicious about the whole event. I would frame yourself tighter so there’s less space at the top of the frame. Also watch for glare in your glasses.

      Nice work! Looking forward to your next one.

      Really great start Monique! I really like how still you are with this. I would avoid shifting your eyes so much and focus on “who” your talking to. I like the first take the best.

      Well done!

      Keep up the good work

      Good Jacob. I’d like to see you do it again.
      Bring the camera to eye level. I liked your nervous energy, but just have the same energy without all the movement. Take your time with it. Be a bit more suspicious, but keep it grounded. Have more at stake here.
      Let me know if you have questions about this.

        I don’t think I’ll be able to make it to the Zoom meeting this Friday. My parents are flying down from Alaska to visit. Would we be able to talk about it the following week?

    Good Stepan,

    I’d like to see more urgency in your tone, and to be a bit more nervous. Maybe a stronger moment before. But a nice start to these practice scripts.

    Great job Kaylee! I liked your different choices. I also liked your volume fluctuation in your voice. I would try to do a little less and try to be a little more still next time. I hope that makes sense. But a great start!

    A tripod is definitely a great thing to have. I would also look for a different light other than a ring light. I have a light suggestion on my equipment page here on the site.

    Well done. Keep up the good work.
