Services

DUE TO COVID-19: Appointments will be more spaced out to allow time for extensive cleaning between clients and to maintain appropriate social distancing during appointments. This may result in longer delays before appointment requests are approved.

IF YOU HAVE LOST WORK DUE TO THE CRISIS: We are offering discounts on a sliding scale of up to 50% for all taping sessions, and Acting Coaching sessions are available over video chat (no in-person sessions for the time being) on a Pay-What-And-When-You-Can basis. No questions asked. Email astoriavideoauditions@lupoblu.com with any questions.

At Astoria Video Auditions, you can count on showcasing the best take of your performance at the highest cinematic level.

Unlike most audition and monologue taping services in New York, we exclusively use top of the line digital cinema equipment (view our standard equipment here) — never DSLRs or “prosumer” light and sound equipment — because we believe professional results require professional tools.

We can accommodate musical theater auditions with an audio file of accompaniment or, with prior arrangement, can move a keyboard into the room (though you’ll need to provide your own accompanist). Our studio-quality audio gear ensures you always sound your best!

If your audition is an Eco-cast, you can log directly into your actors access account in a private window and we’ll upload your audition directly to casting (as well as emailing a copy to you and/or your representation).

View standard services below, or contact us for additional services from on-location audition taping to original short films for your reel.

PLEASE NOTE: Our hours are now 10am-9pm Monday-Friday and 11am-6pm Saturday-Sunday. After hours booking may be available on a case by case basis for an additional 20% fee, email astoriavideoauditions@lupoblu.com to inquire about an after hours appointment!
