Clear my throat and we begin... So, I’ve went through three, maybe four pilot seasons of relentless tapes one after the next and of course off season tapings etc.. adding up the you know what $$$$$$ quickly. I’ve been saying to the UNIVERSE “I really need to see a return on all these tapes baby, come on”... Now this brings me to the wonderfully talented “KIM”.... We’ve recorded three tapes together and the most recent one got me a director/producer session and “BADABOOM” booked! FINALLY — Not taking anything away from the other amazingly talented people I have done self-tapes with, but there does come a point in every actors creative little mind that thinks... “well damn, when am I gonna start seeing a return on these self tapes?” In closing guys — IT does pay off. Kim is great to work with. She has a good and creative understanding for expanding on scenes and giving good ideas to help bring the recording to another level. I highly recommend her.

My agent likes tapes from Kim the best. Great lighting and sound quality. And doing tapes with her is fun. She offers great feedback if you want it and keeps the vibe relaxed.
— Sarah Allen (Remedy, 19-2, Being Human)
I love working with Kim because she’s also an actor, so not only does she make me feel really comfortable in front of the camera, but she also gives really useable notes and redirects. My tapes sound and look great and my agent’s always very happy with them, which is a nice bonus.

I booked two features with KSM. Kim’s no bullshit and she makes me look fabulous!”
— Hannah Anderson (Jigsaw, Shoot the Messenger, Gangland Undercover)
As an actor/producer, Kim at KSM Self-Tapes is professional and has incredible insight into the process. She takes the time to work with you if you need it. Working with Kim felt like being in sync.
— Kevin Kincaid (Sex & Violence, Pure)
I really enjoyed working with Kimberly on several occasions. She took the time to work on the script and give great advice during each session, that brought out the best performance for the audition. There is a very relaxed and professional atmosphere at her studio and I never feel rushed when working which helps immensely. Very highly recommended.

Working with KSM Self-Tapes is an especially down-to-earth experience every actor deserves. The more often I do, the more I love self-taping in general! Kim works at a pace that feels just like being on set but with the added benefit of being able to take your time. She works hard to match your energy to bring out the best in you, allowing emotion to bubble up spontaneously so the story is told organically. Her keen eye is one of a kind and we always wind up with a variety of takes to choose from. Booking The Shadows from a KSM tape was an incredible feeling!
— Alison Louder (Being Human)
Kim takes great care in making an actor feel comfortable with their appearance and choices. She doesn’t just hit record, she helps you explore your scenes, and plays them back for you, ensuring you’re happy with the result. Tapes I’ve submitted through Kim have been very well received, helped me book my last role, and put me on the shortlist for the next one (fingers crossed). Highly recommended for newcomers and seasoned professionals alike.
— Jason Deline (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell)
Affordable and professionally done, I’m always beyond happy with the final product. Kim takes all the time you need and offers her own thoughtful advice. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!!
— Gian-Paolo Venuta (The Firm, Being Human)
I totally booked a supporting role on an American movie shot in Halifax last year, right off a self-tape I did with Kim. She is AMAZING.
— Catherine Bérubé (19-2, Jeunes Loups)
I’ve done some of my best self-tapes with Kim. I love working with her because she doesn’t make me feel rushed, she always has really helpful insights and her lighting is incredible!
— Amber Goldfarb (CFC, Being Human, Lost Girl)
Booked a lead in a feature using KSM !
— Johnathan Sousa (Relative Happiness, The Animal Project)
I have been doing self-tapes with Kimberly-Sue Murray for over a year now. The lighting, the image quality, and the sound are all A-1. But most importantly, the self-tapes I do with Kim are always so wonderful because she always makes me feel comfortable. I never feel rushed. Kim creates a safe environment which allows you, the actor, to really focus on your craft. The gentle directions she gives have helped me to go deeper and find interesting moments that make my performance stand out. I would recommend taping with Kim whenever you can. And self-tapes aren’t the only time! If you have a big audition coming up (or little, every part counts!) then spend an hour with her working on your piece in front of the camera. I guarantee you you’ll be way more prepared for your audition and because of that preparation you will be able to just let your creative juices flow!

Did my first selftape with KSM and ohhhhhh myyyyyy is the quality impeccable! I am so happy! Kimberly is wonderful, patient, and so insightful! I’ll be back for sure.
