CD's will view headshots and resumes while student is performing but each student must collect their headshot and resume after they have finished.
Week 1: Casting for Film The Audition
This will be an on camera session. Each student will have received prior to the class sides and a script from a film I have cast. The student will audition with the sides. They will be taped. I will give feedback and adjustments. We will run thru the entire audition process of receiving the material, walking into the room and being able to give a great audition. This will be a time where we are able to really improve upon our technique, learn about what a casting director and producer are looking for and why you did or did not give a good audition. How to stand out from the rest of the talent.
Week 2: Casting the small film
This will be an on Camera session. Together we will cast a small film, each student will have the script and sides ahead of time. We will discuss the process from start to finish. We will as a group watch our fellow actors, give adjustments and feedback and proceed to the callbacks and decide why we make the choices we do. This should be a fun and lively exercise and give a better understanding to the process as a whole.
Adrienne will provide sides for both classes.
