Brilliant Comprehensive Guide to Framing in Self-Tapes

Fiona Browne

Empowering course which has inspired me to go forth and create more dynamic and exciting self-tapes. Anna makes it so easy to follow, using examples from her own work. In a short amount of time I feel I have learned a valuable skill :)

So Clear!

Eliza Shin

Unlike other boring technique classes, Anna brings the aspects of framing to life. And yay for sharing her own self-tape progress at the end. That was so helpful and inspiring!

What's my frame is an amazing course to take no matter how long you have been auditioning. It is great for beginners to get a head start and bypass certain mistakes they might make. It is also great for those actors who have been auditioning for years and just need a gentle reminder to be free and have fun.

What PMO Students Are Saying

“Thank you sooo much in helping me clarify technical beats like props and action. NY is very anti-props!!!! But they way you broke it down, that it helps propel the next moment -and as a writer, action beats aren't in there for fun, they are moving the story- so it's super helpful to remember to incorporate that as much as possible. ”

Sol Marina Crespo from NY / New Amsterdam (NBC)

“You guys did truly a wonderful job. Even an old dog like me who thinks he knows it all is learning a ton. It’s really in the details with these things. Congrats to you both on the success.”

Alvin Cowan from LA / This is Us, NCIS

“I cannot thank you guys enough for this class. It truly changed this season for me, and I would even say it's changed my career. THANK YOU!!!”

Dempsey Hankins from Chicago

“You two have been so incredibly insightful and very generous with your time. I can honestly say that this class has really made me excited to do self-tapes...I didn't necessarily feel that way before and sometimes, loathed anytime I got a self-tape request because I preferred the room. Now, I am really really looking forward to seeing what happens with my self tapes and career in the future because of the knowledge I've picked up here. The timing of this class couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you both a million times over. ”

Charles Maceo from LA / Big Little Lies, S.W.A.T
