Astoria Video Auditions has moved to Midtown to become Spotlight Self Tapes! Your Friendly Neighborhood Self Tape Studio now serves more neighborhoods than ever before.

We’re founded and run by actors, so we get it. Auditioning can be a stressful experience, antithetical to what you love and hunger for as an artist. That’s why we have one simple goal: to make you love your audition.

We work with you as artists – Everyone on our staff is an actor as well as a skilled camera operator. This means you’ll be in the room with someone who is invested in making you look your best, can give informed feedback (when requested), and is a skilled reader to generously support your work.

We respect your time and your money – Our rates start at $25 for a 10-minute Express appointment with up to two takes of a one- or two-page side, a one-minute monologue, or a single SlateShot (view all rates and details or email us with your particular needs): You’ve done your work, you’d knock it out in 5 minutes in the Casting Director’s office, so why spend more time or money than you need to at a self-tape studio?

We guarantee same-day delivery on all appointments – Last-minute self-tape requests barely give you time to breathe before the submission is due. With our fast standard turnaround, you can spend more time preparing your side and less time wondering when it’ll show up in your inbox. Typical turnaround is within 4 hours — if you need it even faster, just let us know!

We’re open early, late, and on weekends — all at standard pricing – Your schedule was already overbooked before this audition, so we’re open outside of muggle hours, because Duh.
