Self-tape surgeries are online 1-to-1s that are perfect for when you have a self-tape to prepare for. Before every session, Kieran analyses the sides in detail to help you unlock the text and develop your role. During the session you’ll work together to fine-tune and get the most out of your performance, ready for filming.
Self-tape surgeries can boost your confidence before that all-important audition and allow you to showcase yourself in the best way possible.
Flexible time slots are available so you can book a 30-minute top-up to add the final touches to your performance or a longer, more comprehensive session. As the self-tape surgeries take place online via Zoom, you can book a last-minute session from the convenience of your own home.

Kieran has a warm and positive energy and knows exactly what needs to be done to find your character. I can count on him to give me the help and confidence I need before taping.
I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, you really helped me with my monologue and my confidence and I feel like it definitely made the difference.
How do online sessions work?
Online one-to-ones are conducted through Zoom. Once you’ve booked a session you’ll receive a link that will allow you to enter your meeting at the appropriate time. If you’ve not used Zoom before it will install the lightweight software onto your PC. You will not need to give out any personal details or create an account.
You can find out more info about Zoom at https://zoom.us/
What devices can I use?
You can use Zoom on any device including a laptop, computer and smart TV. You can even use Zoom on your phone by downloading the Zoom app. When possible, speakers tend to work better than earphones as earphones can sometimes interfere with the mic on Zoom.
How can I get the best connection?
A stable internet connection is important to get the most out of your session.
For best results connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. WIFI is the next best option and after that, 4G and 3G.
To get the strongest connection, switch off anything else that is connecting to your internet. Quality may be poor if someone else on your wifi network is on Xbox live or streaming Netflix / YouTube.
How do I pay?
You’ll receive an invoice which can be paid via bank transfer. If it’s your first session you’ll need to make the payment beforehand.
