Remember that one benefit of self-taping is that you have the room and time to make your audition perfect. Eye Line: Your eye line should be as close to the camera as possible. ... Also, please look at the camera and do not film in profile.
For good measure, do you slate in a self tape?
Don't Slate Unless specifically instructed to, a rookie mistake is to always slate for a self-taped audition. It's an understandable error as it's pretty much standard before every live audition in a casting office.
Beside that, where should I look for self tape?
Add on, what is slating in acting?
Slate/Slating- For on-camera auditions only. You will be asked to state your name, and sometimes the agent that sent you to the audition, before you begin the scene. This goes on the tape for the casting director's reference. This is called 'slating'.
What is the best size ring light for videos?
Broader lights produce a softer light. So, if all things are equal, a larger ring light is better for your video production. Common sizes on Amazon are 12, 14, and 18-inches, and they all perform well. The 12-inch is best when you only want a headshot.

Choosing clothes for your self-tape audition can also be an important consideration, and you really want to be wearing a solid color. Clothing that's free from very bright and busy patterns works best for self-taped auditions. Keep your clothing as simple as you can and try to avoid too many accessories or jewelry.
Ring lights are easy to use and they can do the same job as two or three ordinary photography or video lights. So they are ideal for self tape auditions that you film on your own. ... Understandably, ring lights are popular with professional photographers, videographers, and vloggers.
Self-tapes are what many actors and casting directors refer to when an audition is done through digital casting–rather than trying out in person, performers submit video of their audition. For some actors, this can be more daunting than an in-person audition while for others, it can be less stressful.
Learn your lines – this might be an obvious one, but a lot of actors think that it's alright to read from the script in the self-tape and then be off book if they get asked to come in for an audition. Best to learn the lines straight away and be comfortable with the material.
Only use props that are essential to the performance. Don't worry too much about the action in the scene - they want to see your performance. Your eye line should be close to the camera as they want to see both sides of your face. If you're using a reader, make sure they aren't too loud.
If you're told that the casting director needs all of the actors off-book for the audition, then the answer is easy: memorize your sides. ... If you can learn your lines and be really solid for the audition then absolutely memorize them. But you don't get any extra points.
