Nancy Bishop, CSA Casting Director and author of Auditioning for Film and TV, offers a special three day MASTER CLASS and INTERNATIONAL MARKETING SEMINAR for actors who wish to position themselves for international work. All students will get a free copy of “Auditioning for Film and TV”
Stay on top of your audition technique with this two-pronged class. Learn valuable skills for self-taping your own auditions, as well as improving your studio on-camera training.
Sunday November 8th: 10:00 – 16:00
Actors are increasingly asked to tape their own auditions and send them digitally to casting directors. Actors who master the skills of self-audition have a crucial advantage in booking the role. In this workshop, participants will be assigned material in advance, prepare a self-taped audition and post it to a drop box. On the day, Nancy Bishop will give a critique of the material.
Students may also bring head shots, and promotional material for review. Nancy will also assign scenes for a mock casting on the following day.
Monday November 9th: 10:00 – 16:00
Targeted exercises will hone on-camera work. Actors will rehearse and record their assigned scenes, followed by view and review. Get professional advice from a casting director who is actively working in the field. Nancy’s book “Auditioning for Film and TV” (Bloomsbury) will be available at the class.
Tuesday evening November 10th, 19:00
