Self Tape Tools!

With the Corona virus halting many of Hollywood's productions this week, self tapes are now the industry standard for casting for the indefinite future. Over the last few years, I have used a variety of products to make my self tapes, and after a little trial and error, finally found amazing products that really help me make my tapes more professional and a whole lot easier to set up. All products are affordable, high quality, and available for Prime shipping!

With so many artists struggling at this time, I thought I would share with everyone the products I use and in a little way to those struggling in this time.
