What Is the 7 Day Self Tape Challenge?

The Self Tape Academy has created a number of online courses designed to help actors be on top of their game. The 7 day self tape challenge is designed for students 18 and over.

First you’ll learn the basics of doing a great self tape and then every day during the 7 days you’ll learn a new script, shoot your self-tape, upload it to the academy and share it with me or an academy tutor.

How Does The 7 Day Self Tape Challenge Work?


You will need a phone or some sort of recording device, and you will need to learn how to light your room, shoot a video and then upload an MP4 file.

On Day 1 you learn how to use our platform and record your first introduction self-tape and you will receive your first script.

Then at midnight each day, you will receive a new script and a place to upload your video from the day before.

Each day you will:

Learn a new script
Shoot and edit your video
Upload to the Academy 
Repeat for 7 days or take up to 3 months to complete. Totally up to you

What kind of material will I receive?

Each day you’ll receive a different scene/script, as well as tips, tricks, and resources along the way.

Why should I do this course?

You will become more skilled as an actor, get feedback and end up with a skill that will last a lifetime and potentially get you the role of your dreams.

Best of all you will have a lot of fun doing it!

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.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone! If you’re wanting to improve your knowledge and confidence in front of the camera, pick up a few tips and ticks on how to nail your self tapes, then this course is for you. This course provides a friendly and safe environment where you’re able to receive feedback on what you’re doing well at and tips on how to make your auditions even better! I found that even over a week, my confidence and knowledge in front of a camera has improved dramatically and want to thank Sarah for providing an environment in which this is possible to achieve – in such a short time frame.

Before taking this self-tape course, I was an absolute amateur! There are many key elements to consider when doing a self-tape that I never thought about before. This course is highly interactive with awesome and helpful classmates too, which makes it even better because we all help each other out along the way. Not to mention the coach is right there with you the whole time. My videos went from amateur to professional looking in only 7 days! I would absolutely recommend this course to a friend, it’s 100% worth it.

The 7 day self tape challenge is a great tool for introducing the art of self-tape to beginner actors who are looking to take on more auditions, as well as allowing intermediate actors to practice their methods so that they can gain more confidence in their methods and acting abilities. Be it an aspiring actor or a newcomer looking to enter the entertainment industry, this course allows you to gain confidence and the ability to put the best audition self tape that the individual can so that they have the best chances of succeeding.

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!
