AUDITION WORKSHOP | CASTING TECHNIQUES, AUDITION PREPARATION, FILMED REEL
The Actors Door Studio Audition Workshop is an intensive day workshop ideal for actors who want to learn and actively exercise their auditioning skills.
The workshop is an intensive 6 hours training program that will cover the following:
• Audition preparation
• Relaxation techniques
• The cold read
• The Self-tape
• Personalising the text
• Connecting with the camera
• Making lasting impressions
A few days prior to the workshops we will send out short audition sides to attendees. Members will choose one of the pieces to prepare for the workshop. This preparation work is designed to begin teaching you how to prepare for an upcoming audition.
During the workshop, you will have the chance to workshop your performance on camera under the instruction of your teacher.
After the audition, we will send you your filmed performance which you can use as a showreel.
The workshop is open to all (you do not need to be an Actors Door Studio student to attend).
There are no specific acting requirements for the workshop other than at least some basic acting knowledge/experience.
WHY TAKE THE AUDITION WORKSHOP:
An audition or a casting is an essential part to an actor getting a role. During the audition, casting directors and directors test the actor’s skills in acting, as well as their ability to embody the character they are casting for. As a result, a great deal rests on a successful audition.
Auditioning, much like interviewing for a new job, requires preparation, stress management, knowledge of auditioning techniques; all these on top of your acting skills. Whilst acting classes and courses develop your acting abilities and help nurture your talents in performance, they often do not teach crucial skills and techniques required for successful casting.
It is for this specific reason that we have developed the workshop; to get actors audition ready.
Limited places are available for this workshop!
