Those headphones would work better if you removed your hoodie.
I love self taping. It's nice not having to drive from the valley to santa monica at 5pm on a Friday, see the 5 other guys in the waiting room who I've been competing with for the last 40 years, wait for whatever delays they casting people are doing, and then read with an assistant who wants to go home. The one thing I did enjoy about live reads was when the director & producers were in the room, but that was becoming increasingly rare as casting would just send the tapes to producers, anyway.
I have a set-up in my garage and a couple of good actors who read with me off-camera. I can concentrate on the work as all of the other crap that comes with auditioning is gone.
I know a couple of actors who hate self-taping and I get it, but I love it.
