Whether you're a newbie or an actor on the audition circuit who isn't getting the results you want, tonight is the night to figure it all out. In this jam-packed intensive, Katja Blichfeld, of Blichfeld-Daniels Casting and Jen Rudolph, owner of The Actor's Green Room, will teach you all about the business of acting and the art of auditioning for Under 5s.
What we will cover includes:
* the importance of knowing one's type (we will determine what everyone's type is)
* what makes a great headshot (we'll look at yours)
* resumes (formatting and what to leave on/off)
* audition and business etiquette
* why Under 5 auditions are unique
* the process of self-submitting
* how to follow up with casting directors
* how to dress and prepare for an audition
* how to thrive as a self-represented actor
* how to acquire representation (freelancing/signing)
Each actor will get a chance to work on-camera with Katja and Jen, and supported by an outstanding reader, on an Under 5 scene from a recent project. Actors will also get to watch one another on a television monitor and learn from Katja and Jen's coaching and feedback. Everyone's work will be emailed to them in the form of HD QuickTime movie files they can review after class.
Don't miss this opportunity to forge relationships with Katja and Jen and get yourself in tip-top shape for pilot season!
Ages 16 and up are welcome!
