The Actors Centre

Screen Audition, Rehearsal and Performance

WHAT IS IT? A chance to work at The Audition, The Rehearsal, and The Shoot, and discover what a director is looking for in you. HOW WILL IT WORK? The aim, over three sessions, is for you to learn to look quickly for the clues in a completely new scene before an Audition. We will explore how to perform your way of doing it, how to recognise what the director is looking for, and taking on the director’s notes. These auditions will be filmed for feedback and discussion. We will then film these scenes completely, looking at different shot sizes – wide shots and close-ups – and explore what the actor does in silence. The scenes will be reviewed so that you can see what you are doing absolutely right, and where some mannerisms may be getting in the way. Lastly, we will talk about the pressures of filming, and how an actor can be confident in front of a crew and team when meeting for the first time. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? You will know what to expect on a film shoot, and, with this practice and confidence, you will get it right. These three sessions, over two days, are for you to ask any question you want, as often as you want, and show how you can improve by understanding the whole process. Price: £110.


The workshop runs over two days,
