Cast Yourself: Audition Technique for TV and Film | ADULT

In this course, actors will dissect and demystify the on-camera auditioning process with one of Atlanta’s most experienced casting directors (and former actor). Expect tips on how to create dynamic, personal, and active self tapes or in-person call backs with clear, active choices, grounded in truth. We will also cover everything “outside of the acting” from industry standard lighting, sound, to backgrounds and much more. We’ll create a basic road map for any audition by exploring objectives, obstacles, actions, and storytelling arc. We’ll practice receiving notes and re-directs. Slates and cold reads will also be explored, and we’ll reserve time each week for general questions about the biz!

Class focal points:
  • Understand present-day industry standards for successful lighting, sound, and audio for self tapes, and hear what makes a callback stand out or suffer.
  • Explore how to bring one’s best self to auditions so that they are specific, grounded in truth, and varied.
  • Hear real-time response to self tapes – what are the successes and what are the opportunities.
  • Re-explore material from self-tapes in a mock call back setting, filmed, with real time notes and adjustments from a casting director.
  • Create together a basic roadmap for any audition by naming objectives, obstacles, actions, and storytelling arc.
  • What’s too much or too little in a self-taped slate?
  • Explore cold reads, filmed, and quick tips to make them stand out with little preparation time.
  • Time each week for general questions about the biz!
