Writers and directors often need to hear lines spoken out loud and perhaps get some feedback - or the project simply needs actors before applying for funds.The option of having non funded projects on Selftape Scandinavia is based on the reality of how a production comes to life. It also provides a way for actors and filmmakers to establish collaborative relationships.
Please know that in “Non Funded Projects” most actors read aloud from the script with little or no rehearsel, practice or study in advance - and that the actors have the option to switch off Non Funded Projects in their account setting. This means that they will not receive casting calls for Non Funded Projects on their dashboards.
This typically ruins the overall quality of your selftape.DON´T SHOOT TOWARDS A WINDOW
