CSA casting directors Nancy Bishop and Luci Lenox will team up in Berlin to teach an intensive one-day master class. In this Masterclass, actors will have the opportunity to improve auditioning skills in English and make valuable connections for international work.
The class will be divided into half day sessions:
Session 1: Feedback on Self Taped Audition clips and show reels:
Self-taped auditions are increasingly prevalent in the industry and actors are expected to have the skills to effectively present themselves. Actors will be assigned scenes to tape in advance and will bring them to the class on a USB stick for professional feedback from Luci Lenox. Actors are welcome to bring demo tapes, headshots and CVs for feedback as well.
Session 2: Cold Reading Technique:
Nancy Bishop will teach the techniques outlined in her book, Secrets from the Casting Coach, leading actors through a series of exercises that strategize how to approach new material. This half of the class will focus on how to tackle unknown texts when there is not much time to prepare.
