simplifying your work on-camera with derek hersey
Casting Associate at CSA Kromer Casting
Words of Wisdom from Derek Hersey:
"Simplify!! People moving too much is distracting. Use your eyes instead of movement.
Simplify your choices, trying to put every single color in can get muddy."
"Look at the audition as a playground rather than a job interview so you can have fun with the opportunity to act."

CD's will view headshots and resumes while student is performing but each student must collect their headshot and resume after they have finished.
Today is the day to meet and work with Derek Hersey. The day begins with a Q/A with Derek. Next, each actor will get to work on camera with Derek and receive feedback. Each actor, one at a time, will go into our studio to work on camera with Derek on pre-selected sides and be supported by one of our outstanding readers. The rest of the class will get to watch and listen on a television monitor in the main room. Each actor's work will be emailed to them in the form of a High Definition Quicktime Movie after the class to review as they wish. This class is slotted for a 3 hour period meaning that class CAN last 3 hours but if all questions are answered and each student has been seen by the CD, class may possibly end before the 3 hours is finished.
