WHY WE DREAD THE FULL BODY SHOT
If you're self-taping an audition at home, I'm guessing that you also hate resetting your studio to get the dreaded full body shot each time.
Why is there no universal standard for slating?!
So I solved this problem by saving all of my full body shots and slates to my phone.
Now I can just pop whichever one I need into my slate.
PRO TIP #1
Be sure to film one with your hair up and down if you ever wear it in a ponytail so it matches your closeup.
PRO TIP #2
Pick one shirt to wear for all of your general reads that aren’t wardrobe specific so your audition outfit always matches your primary full body shot.
For example, I always wear a blue V-neck tee if the audition doesn't suggest wearing something character specific.
PRO TIP #3
Remember to update your saved slates if you change your hair or appearance.
