Self Test


Self Test service

Brave Studios provides the perfect professional environment for actors needing to self-test their audition. Together with our fully equipped studio and uploading services, Brave Studios provides studio facilities of the highest standard to ensure clients receive the highest quality product.

Brave Studios’ self-test service is highly regarded and recommended by elite agencies and professional Actors Australia wide.

With many US auditions coming to Melbourne through agents, self-testing is fast becoming the norm. Actors are now given the opportunity to audition for many roles outside Australia. This, therefore, gives actors more opportunities to break into the industry.


Studio directors Elle Mandalis and Damien Fotiou operate all self-tests. They are both working actors with 40 years experience combined in the Australian Film and TV Industry.

We create a safe and relaxed space for you to do your self-test in our state-of-the-art studios, which are regularly used for castings by leading Australian casting directors. Elle and Damien love doing the self-test 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.


Many actors who self-test at Brave have a great success rate with callbacks. We consistently receive thank you messages from agents for great tests from our clients. Our clientele, therefore, includes many well-known actors of the Australian stage and screen. We pride ourselves on continuing our fantastic reputation within the industry.

Includes the following:

Professional actor as your reader
