The Actors Centre

TV and Film Audition Advice and Technique

WHAT IS IT? An opportunity to work on your audition technique with a Casting Director as well as ask questions about the casting process. HOW WILL IT WORK? Following a talk, Jane will provide the opportunity for participants to do a mock read through using TV and/or film scripts she has cast, or on which she is currently working. The mock auditions will be undertaken on camera in front of the whole group so that everyone can contribute to the process and learn from each other. Scenes will be given out on the day as if for a cold read scenario, but time will be given to prepare. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? Feedback, tips and advice from a Casting Director, renewed confidence and strategies to help you be at your best when auditioning. Price: £35
