Tools of the Trade

WHAT IS IT? A workshop designed to help you identify the tools of your trade available to you, and how to use them to the best effect. Designed for actors newly graduated or at an early stage in their career. HOW WILL IT WORK? Using your CV and photo/showreel as a starting point, Suzy Catliff will use her own experience as a casting director to advise and pinpoint what you could do to maximise your casting potential. The group are encouraged to discuss their own experiences within the profession so far and how they would like to progress. Suzy will give realistic and practical advice on how to source and access the next step of their career in a supportive and enjoyable environment. Please bring a copy of your CV. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? A personal evaluation for each participant in order for them to forward their career in the areas they would like to progress to ensure you come across as professionally and positively as possible. PRICE: £18.
