SELF TAPING STUDIO

ASTORIA, NY

modern space

Most taping studios lack style. They are usually located in plain spaces with only the basic equipment needed to get the job done. My studio is an ultra-modern space, intricately designed and styled to give each client a feeling of comfort and positivity. 

I'm a big believer in good, positive energy. So much of your result depends on a relaxed and natural performance. My space offers simple, elegant comforts with professional level functionality to give you that boosted inspiration for your best work. You'll come in feeling energized and leave feeling that you've achieved beyond what you came in to accomplish.

FOR YOUR SAFETY

In the interest of staying COVID-19 safe, bookings will be spaced apart in order to throughly sanitize all furniture and equipment used by the previous client. 

 

I will also be wearing a mask and gloves while working and filming.

Please come to your session with makeup and hair camera ready. We do have a bathroom if you need to change, but additional time will not be given on top of your booked session.

Brandi Bravo

(FBI, Quantico)

I was headed back to NYC from a booking when I got a last minute self-tape request from my agent - two meaty scenes due two hours after my flight was landing.  I texted Eric in a panic and not only did he go out of his way to accommodate my same-day request, he handled the session with so much professionalism that I was able to just relax and focus on doing my best work. I can't recommend him enough!  

Jimmy Brooks

(Madame Secretary, Elementary)

What can I say about taping with Eric?  It is pure magic. When I want to knock a self tape out the ballpark, I tape with him. He is extremely professional with a studio set-up that is in a league of its own. Everything from the taping to the final product is seamless and easy to access. I believe that a huge part of his dedication (borderline obsession) with getting you your strongest take comes from his instincts as a working actor in the industry. He has an eye for truth, and he is genuinely there to play with you.

Sagine Valla

(Bull, The Blacklist)

Eric is absolutely great and reliable.  He has a technical eye and all the gear necessary to get the job done. And what's more he is talented at helping you capture a great performance. His understanding of text analysis and ease in personality creates an environment ripe for your best work to come out. I love working with Eric.
