During this intensive workshop actors will explore how to make the most out of their time in the casting room for both the Australian and US markets. Led by Cinzia Coassin, actors will have the opportunity to recreate the 'self-tape' scenario for both markets. In the process they will take adjustments and direction as they would in each unique environment and discuss the crucial differences between the two and how to best play to your strengths in each. Gaining insight to what makes a good self taped audition.
After providing their headshot and CV upon registration each participant will be given a scene to prepare provided by the Casting Director and chosen by agent Gael McDonald – you will bring your prepared scene to the workshop.
Cinzia will lead actors through the rehearsal process for an Australian or US scene before putting it down on tape. She will outline usable, actionable, step-by-step guidelines designed to maximize your impact in the audition scenario. Cinzia will give you feedback, direction and adjustments applicable to the Australian market, and share with you the best ways to use your time in the audition room.
In the final hour of the workshop Cinzia will be joined by agent Gael McDonald and they invite each participant under 18 to ask their parent to join the workshop as they share their industry knowledge – the how, when, where, what and do’s and don’ts of this complex industry.
