AN INTIMATE ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR CREATIVITY

"I was referred to Paul by my dear friend Latarsha Rose, who works with him whenever she’s in NYC. I’m so grateful for that, because ever since Paul and I had our first session, my self tapes have been dope!!! He’s professional, consistently reliable and most importantly, he creates an intimate environment for your creativity to be unearthed and unleashed.”

Stephen Rider, actor, SAG-AFTRA, NY/LA

I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER

A DELIGHT TO WORK WITH

”I was thrilled to work with Paul after he had been recommended by a friend who’s been booking constantly from the self tapes he's done with him. I found him professional, prepared, considerate, a delight to work with and just a super nice guy. He did a great job as a reader while he was doing everything else, I felt comfortable and able to give the performance I wanted to give -- and I received a product I was VERY happy with. The lighting, the sound…all of it was as good, if not better than what I’ve taped with casting directors. I’ll definitely work with him again!”

VALUABLE COACHING WHEN NEEDED

"So I just booked my first role on a TV show; for the role of Blue on Startup. To be honest, I don't think that I could've booked it without Paul's help. After we shot the first take, he offered a suggestion to try it again (with a completely different tone). That adjustment is what got me called back 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 when needed. He guided me on the completely right path! I am literally flying to Puerto Rico for a week to film for SONY PICTURES! 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."

IMPRESSED BY THE QUALITY

“Wow. What a great session! 5 stars, definitely. What separates Paul from the others is his sincere desire to help you book the job.

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, for his attention to detail and comfortable environment made me feel confident to do great work. He also has high end gear 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."

COZY STUDIO

"Paul’s such a wonderful person to work with. He was very professional and proficient...and made me feel very comfortable in his cozy studio. As a reader, he reads with the right emotion (not a ‘flat’ reader you normally get in many audition rooms). 
I certainly recommend him to other actors with similar needs."

Jay Potter self tape review


TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS

"The insight and sensitivity that Paul brings to your session will position you in the best light for your inevitable success. We have now recorded many auditions together and after each one I leave feeling proud of my work, saying to myself, ‘That was an excellent audition’. And...I have a booked almost EVERY audition recorded with him! Major film roles and recurring TV characters. In the process, under Paul's keen eye, direction and understanding of the medium, I always feel like I've just had an acting class. So, for the price of one session, I get a class and send an audition to a casting director that has the highest standards of professionalism. With this kind of track record, why would I go elsewhere?"

GREAT DIRECTION & ADVICE

"I needed monologues recorded so I contacted Paul to do the job. He was amazing to work with.  He didn't just sit there behind the camera but gave me really great direction and advice.  I would highly recommend working with him if you need scenes, monologues or auditions recorded."

LIKE BEING ON SET, INSTEAD OF AUDITIONING

"NYC Video Auditions is not just another self-tape service.  Going to Paul 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

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. 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, NY/LA
