PREPARATION FOR FILM & TELEVISION CASTINGS & SCREEN TESTS
Thursday 13th & Friday 14th August 2020
Price: £150 (£75 per day)
Two-day course aimed at actors either already working in the profession or just starting out to brush up on their audition skills for castings within the world of screen. Whether it be for television, film or advert castings. Actors will be directed, screen tested and be given the opportunity to watch back their work to help them become more relaxed and familiar with script analysis and improvisation for a mock television advert, a monologue and scene work giving them a greater understanding of approaching a live audition.
Each actor will be given one to one tuition and also work with other actors in pairs to discover the art of improvisation and the breakdown of a monologue and scene work to help the actor create a greater active truthful inner life and breath energy into characterisation and lift the words of the text off the page. Each actor will also learn during this process the technicalities of camera shots of singles, two shots and master shots as well as hitting their mark.
The outcome over the two days should help both novice to the more seasoned actor to be better prepared, more specific in their own approach and choices, relaxed and free to express themselves within an audition or screen test environment which shall help them to go on and achieve making an impact on the job they are auditioning for, as well as having fun along the way.
Timings for both of the two days are from 10.30am - 16.30pm with a one-hour lunch break. Advisable to arrive from 10.00am to start promptly at 10.30am. Comfortable clothes and footwear are advised.
