Spotlight Actor On Tape

The easiest way for actors to record high quality audition footage

If you've been asked to tape an audition for a casting director, agent or manager, we hire our studios at a reduced rate on an hourly or half hourly basis.

Working with our experienced camera operators, you can record as many takes as you like within your allocated time, review the footage and choose clips to be uploaded to a casting webpage. We then email a link to view and download high-resolution Mpeg 4 video files.

"I am a London-based actor, but I work closely with the film industry in Luxembourg, where I used to live. I have found the Spotlight Actor on Tape service hugely useful. As well as saving me the trouble and expense of travelling back for auditions, I am confident that the recipients are always impressed by the standard of professionalism that the tapes demonstrate. I would add that my visits have always been a pleasure, because the camera operators have been so patient, friendly and knowledgeable. My three most recent sessions have all resulted in my being cast in feature films (directed by Julien Temple, Bernard Bellefroid and Terence Davies) and I am certain that Spotlight's Actor on Tape service has contributed to this success."
