From the first day I felt inspired and compelled to work

Sarah Valentine has put together a comprehensive and enjoyable self-tape academy. From the first day I felt inspired and compelled to work at the lessons given and learn the skill. Sharing my self-tapes with her and her colleague Johanna and all the other students in the academy has been a simple and honest way of improving the craft. Thank you so much Sarah for teaching me this valuable skill!

I strongly recommend this course for anyone interested in pursuing a career in front of a camera – (either full time or as a hobby.) I took the course hoping to improve my self-taping technological skills. I learned so much about the technology, that was great. But even better, it was fun! It was great getting feedback from the other participants. But the best part was Sarah’s teaching style. As a teacher myself, I have strong feelings about teaching styles. Sarah is warm, caring, and so positive. And she doesn’t balk at suggesting ways in which a student can improve… but she does it in such a way, that students want to do it better. Sarah is a great teacher and she really helped to make the course fun and instructive.

What a confidence booster! 

What a confidence booster!  There is so much more to consider, than just the acting, and this course covers it off nicely. There are also some fantastic tips and interviews from industry experts.

Your “classmates” are just as eager to learn, so it’s a very safe space to work in.

Go on – give it a nudge.  What have you got to lose?

I had so much fun on the Self Tape course

I had so much fun on the Self Tape course, and came away much more inspired and confident than I felt going in. Sarah is a wonderful mentor; you can really see she is passionate about helping her students do their best. Her kindness and knowledge really shines, and the “self-tape community” was so encouraging and welcoming the whole way through.
