Slatable was created as a reaction to the all-too-common problem faced by actors when they can’t find someone to read with them for a last-minute self tape.
In 2015 CEO/founder David W Ross found himself, for the first time, in just that quandary. Home alone, with a self tape audition due in 2 hours, David was facing the daunting task of working out how to cobble together multiple apps to record and playback the other character’s lines whilst recording his side of the audition. Despite Ross’s years of experience on both sides of the camera, it was still a tedious task stealing precious time from what he’d preferably be doing work on: the script! And it struck him, “Why isn’t there an app for…”. And so Slatable’s journey to the AppStore began.
Released in 2016 Slatable has become a “dream app” recommended by top casting directors worldwide, and saved actors over $1M in expensive self tape studios.
Slatable 2.0 was released in 2018 sporting a brand new look making it even easier to create self tapes in seconds.
In May of 2020 AuditionDrop was released, Slatable’s revolutionary way to share self tape auditions, continuing the mission of making self tapes easy and accessible for everyone.
