1 Day Seminar
Self-Tape Audition & Auditioning for Camera Workshop
Berlin, February 11th 2017
Self¬taped auditions are in high demand from productions and actors are increasingly expected to effectively present themselves on short notice. In this workshop, actors learn to hone self¬ tape skills with feedback from international casting director Nancy Bishop.
Actors will prepare a pre assigned self taped audition for feedback . Actors should bring headshots for feedback as well.
Donna Morong will instead focus on auditioning for the camera. Actors will be given material ahead of time to prepare for a taped audition in class. You will be asked to take adjustments and the entire class will watch playbacks and receive a critique of your reading. Actors will learn what is expected and required in the audition room in LA, as well as what not to do. Material will be drawn from recents films and TV pilots. Learn the craft of auditioning, it’s similarities and differences from working onset, in order to maximize your ability to get cast in projects originating from LA.
In addition, Nancy and Donna will present a short informational session about working internationally followed by a Q&A.
