HELP ME TAPE
CEO: JONATHAN FORBES COUNTRY: UNITED KINGDOM STARTED: 2022
What’s your origin story? My name is Jonathan
Forbes (acted in Catastrophe , Fearless , Dublin
Murders ), and I was tired of doing remote auditions using pre-recorded cues in isolation. I was asking
favours from friends at short notice and realised I wasn’t the only one! So, I decided to build a platform for professional actors’ self-tape needs. What is the company working on right now? The website has just gone live and I am beginning the process of raising awareness among my peers and the acting industry at large. What is the next step? Once the user numbers start to grow, the website will become more in tune with the needs of the community. As
it stands, it is a place where an actor can find another actor to tape with. More specific needs will be catered for as the community develops. Things like skill and resource swaps, tuition, equipment and other filters will be added. What one thing does the business need most? People! The platform is as strong as its users and will evolve in accordance with their needs. It’s a journey of discovery for me, being an actor by trade, and with this being my first foray into tech start-up.
