Our dedicated team works hard to offer high-quality service. Have all your work done professionally here at Shoreline Studios. Do your thing and we'll take care of the rest.
Get your head in the game!
A SlateShot is a 7 second video that brings your headshot to life! It's your introduction to casting; telling them something about yourself that they can't read on your resume. It gives them an idea of who you are and what you sound like. The process is quick, easy and many casting directors use them to get to know the REAL you.
As you only have 1 chance to make a good first impression, you should give it your best...and that includes getting your Slate Shot professionally taped. Come to Mike Wollin Studios via Shoreline Studios. Afterall Mike is considered the best Actor Services Videographer in Vancouver.
$20.00 per Slate
We’ll upload the slate to your account for you!
Preparation: As casting will click on your headshot to see your Slate Shot, it's best if you come looking like your headshot: same hair style, shirt (top), etc...
If, after looking at your headshot, you realize you need new one, why not get a SlateShot done at the same time. Perfect for consistency with the video and headshot! Ask your photographer if they can do your Slate Shot!
When all you have to offer is a video, make sure it's a cut above!

Some 'general' details about our programs:
Want to Audit? Sure. Be prepared to jump in and get to work. It's the only way to find out if the class is a fit for YOU.
To ensure enough time for each student, we cap our classes between 4 - 6 participants.
To prepare for upcoming classes, keep an eye out for weekly homework emails. To simulate real audition scenarios, your new scene(s) will be assigned at some point within the week, including up to the afternoon before class. You are expected to come in fully off-book and ready to go. Class is a place to learn and fail, but that doesn’t change your level of commitment. Practice like you play.
All materials provided are casting confidential and for educational purposes only. Materials must NOT be shared, distributed, or posted online, to your website, or any other public domain.
All weekly classes are ongoing and each round is tweaked to meet the needs and desired focuses of the specific students. Materials are assigned based on the individual's level of experience, hit, and goals. Consistent practice is key; our students realize it's a commitment and train year-round.
All on-camera work will be added to a private link, sent at the beginning of the term. Make sure to check the link as it will update automatically as more footage becomes available.
Although we work in a classroom, we expect Professionalism. We encourage students to explore and fail as that is how one learns. Just like on set, when cameras are rolling, it is important to be quiet and pay attention so those working can focus.
Each actor works differently and our goal is to pass forward Safe Techniques that the actor can explore to see if it works for them as an individual, in a supportive environment. We Do Not Teach Substitution.
Monthly payment-plans are available for weekly classes. Take advantage of discounts when you refer a friend/sibling or register for multiple courses!
Once a student has completed a full course, they qualify for the Returning Student Rate, applicable to any courses within the following 6 months. Please note this offer is only available toward our 6-week adult classes at this time.
We focus on learning story, script structure, audition and on-camera techniques, and through various explorative exercises, the students work on finding what works for them emotionally, psychologically, and physically.
