Welcome to the self-tape page for the HBO PRODUCTION casting. Here’s a summary of the show:
Our show is a documentary project that will include both documentary participants and some performers for reenactment segments.
To be considered for the show, there’s 3 steps.
1. Download the sides (see below) for your role, and learn the scene.
2. Record the requested takes of the scene on your phone or camera.
3. Submit those videos + your contact info to us via the link below.
Please read through the cover page of your sides for details about blocking, framing and how to record each scene.
We’ve used some shorthands for framing – search online and you’ll find helpful translation of what these mean. Don’t fret too hard about getting the framing exactly right.
CU: Close up shot
MED: Medium shot
WIDE: Wide shot
Please note: you will be asked to submit a number of video clips. Please do not merge them into a single large video clip.
