ATTENTION TO DETAIL

"NYC Video Auditions is my happy place for auditioning. The professionalism, attention to detail and turnaround time are all so important, and Paul always delivers.  I've worked with him many times, and have consistently been called back - and booking work because of it. He really knows how to create a safe, relaxed, comfortable space for us to do our best work together."

A TRUSTED RELATIONSHIP

I met Paul the third day after I moved to NYC in the fall of 2016. I'm new in the city and I was asked to submit an Eco Cast submission over the weekend! I called Paul, he responded very quickly (this is a great trait of his)...and that was the beginning of a trusted relationship. 
He has recorded me for various projects and several of them I have been fortunate enough to book, thanks to Paul! He gives me honest advice but always lets me take the lead as to how the whole process is going. He knows how to inspire the best in me and respects my choices. Paul is also a gifted reader who always makes it interesting and fun. I think every time I come to work with him how fortunate I was to connect with him right away in NYC.
I can't recommend him highly enough!

Ellen Williams, actor, NYC/LA

 


HE GUIDED ME ON THE COMPLETELY RIGHT PATH

"So I just booked my first role on a TV show today. To be fully honest I don't think that I could have booked it without Paul's help. After we shot the first take, he gave me a suggestion to shoot the scene again in a completely different tone. That adjustment is what got me called back, pinned, and eventually booked for the role. I am SO thankful for finding Paul! It's not just a place to self tape. He really provides valuable coaching experience. He guided me on the completely right path! I am literally flying to Puerto Rico in two days for a week to film! I am over the moon! Thank you, Paul! Can't wait to work together again."

PAUL IS BOTH MY & MY AGENT'S FIRST CHOICE FOR SELF-TAPING

"I've used many different self-tape services in New York City, but what sets Paul apart is how comfortable he makes the environment, and how he offers suggestions that enhance my ideas rather than imposing his will on the readings. Additionally, a beautifully-lit and perfectly-framed shot is a product of his meticulous attention to detail. He is both my and my agent's first choice when it comes to self-tape services."

STAND OUT IN A SEA OF SUBMISSIONS

"I was referred to Paul by an actor friend. I was so impressed by the tape Paul had created for him, both the quality of the audition and the high production value of the video. My own session with Paul was wonderful and I agree with another testimonial that summarizes his direction as gentle but pointed. He wants you to be the best you in the role you are creating with him. And that's how I feel our session was - a collaboration with the right amount of attention paid to technical detail. After all, having a professional, polished tape with you looking the part with just the right lighting and background helps you stand out in a sea of submissions.  Paul's open, easy, safe and creative. He seems to understand all kinds of material; themes, genre and tone. He knows when you're not connecting with him as a reader and its very helpful to review your takes with him to discover what may need to be tweaked. He'll help you to be alive and spontaneous and it's a godsend to have a reader like him. He really cares about helping you to give your best and will output the energy necessary to get you there.  A generous soul indeed! I look forward to continued collaboration with Paul."

MADE ME CONFIDENT TO DO GREAT WORK

"I have done many self tape auditions in various different studios and I have often felt rushed,  or the readers simply aren’t good.  I was incredibly impressed with Paul at NYC Video Auditions. His attention to detail and comfortable environment made me feel confident to do great work. He also has top end equipment which is much better than I’ve what had before.  My agents were all impressed with the audition, and I will definitely be going back again.  Highly recommended."

LIKE BEING ON SET, INSTEAD OF AUDITIONING

"Paul is not just another self-tape service.  Going to him is like being on set.  His direction is gentle but pointed.  He helps get you to where you want to be with your character both technically and objectively.  Since taping with Paul, my eyes are opened to looking at auditions in a completely different light.  I see them now not as a "hurry up and project your ideas into the limited time slot" sort of deal, where all truth and connection goes out the window.  I trust my instincts a little bit more and can't wait for the next chance, be it minutes in a casting office or a self-tape with Paul, to breathe life into a role, to do what I love.  
Go to him.  You'll be happy you did."

   Joe Bartolotta, actor, Staten Island, NY
