Elle, Damien, and Alexis love the self tape process as much as our clients enjoy coming here. We make it as stress-free as possible so you can enjoy delivering your best work.

Brave Studios offer 2 fully equipped professional studios and always do their best to schedule you in.


Many actors who self tape at Brave have a great success rate with callbacks. We consistently receive thank you messages from agents for great tests from our clients.

“I have to say what a joy it is to work with the best.
In any audition situation. want to be in a space where you feel free and have that fun exciting creative buzz alive….and if course, be surrounded with  honest,  professional and experienced feedback and support.

Always at Brave Studios..with Elle and Damien…having their creative input,  and absolute clarity on the technical aspects of an audition, the look of it and accent work,  I have had simply the best experiences. ….. plus their objective support for my creative process has without question been .. really…the clincher for success.
Whether it’s for an Australian film or TV or an American movie or series..I leave their studios knowing I have the best possible work in their safe hands.
So thank you. .You guys rock.”
