Using the Self Test Studio
- You will need to bring a standard SD card on the day, preferably a fast card (listed as 400x or 30mb/s or higher). You may want to consider formatting this card first so you can ensure there will be enough room. Do not forget to remove your camera card upon leaving.

- Camera Operator
- All equipment must be put back to its original place before leaving.
- No food or drinks (apart from water) are to be consumed in the studio.
- Please clean up any rubbish before leaving.
- DO NOT leave the Self Test Studio open without anyone present at ANY time. If you need to leave for some reason please call an Equity Staff member to lock the venue.
- What to wear: Try to stay away from blue colours since you will blend into the bright blue colour of the wall. Stay away from tops with patterns, words and/or branding, or anything that is too busy.
- Be sure to memorise your lines and feel comfortable with the script.
- You will need a reader in the room with you, so if you can find someone who has some acting ability, this will help make a stronger self-test.
