Actress Kayla Nash on Her Video Series, ‘Self Tape w/ Lindsay Drake!’

Self Tape w/ Lindsay Drake! is a series of very short videos that are a great way to refresh, revamp and rekindle the humor in the wild world of auditioning. Whether you are starting out or you’re a seasoned actor, these will not only tickle your funny bone but also make ya think about those audition skills!

They were so much fun to make, and I’ve been wanting to do something creative with this idea for some time now. I wanted to poke fun a little at both actors and casting directors (all in good humor) in an insightful and uplifting way to help make my points. I had come across a few interesting self tape auditions in my day, and thought this would be interesting for others to see them in a constructive way.

I hope you enjoy them. These would even be great to use in class for kids, teens or even adults!
