IS THIS WORKSHOP RIGHT FOR ME?
Well, if you’ve been reading about this workshop and you’ve gotten down to this section, you’re probably saying to yourself right now – well, this all sounds great. But what do I really get out of all of this? Well, you might want to start by asking yourself a couple of important questions. Do you find yourself going out on auditions – and are becoming frustrated by the seemingly random way in which you book work or don’t book work? Do you wish you could figure out how to book more jobs – or take your acting career to that next level? Do you want to know how to “sell” YOU better? Is all of your training in theatre – and you’re not sure how to make that translate over to the screen? Or do you just want to know how to take what is special about you – and make sure it ends up in each role and audition you perform?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then this workshop is for you. Upon completion, you will walk away with a knowledge of how the casting system works – so that you can be in the flow of it, rather than fighting it (trust us, this is a much less frustrating route to go!). You will begin to identify what makes you unique, so that you can make sure those qualities show up each time you go to work. And you can move forward in your acting profession with an edge on the competition – with specific tools and tricks to increase your chances of booking the audition and building a working career in film and television.
