While self-testing offers some pros for actors, a recent town hall meeting of MEAA Equity members identified concerns and issues with the proliferation of requests for self-tests before the opportunity to audition.
These include a lack of feedback and absence of direction, uncertainty about whether the tape gets seen or not, short turnaround times, and the overall cost in time and money in preparing for a self-test.
As a result, a new MEAA Equity sub-committee has been established to develop a standardised set of guidelines.
This survey has been created to gather feedback about your self-testing experiences to inform these guidelines.
All responses to this survey remain confidential with MEAA.
