In this seminar, Sarah will talk about her career to date in Casting for both film & television. Sarah will cover the most common questions that Actors have for Casting Directors as well as some general top tips for actors in preparing and going through the audition process.
Sarah will practically demonstrate audition technique by using seminar attendees to perform prepared scenes onstage, offering practical feedback and using the performances to practically highlight how to achieve the best audition techniques possible.
The workshop will end with a Q&A where you can ask the questions you most want to ask including how to be proactive and how to effectively self-promote yourself to a casting professional.
Sarah was born and raised in Manchester, England, and began her career in film as assistant to producer Larry Franco on Batman Begins. She was asked to return to the film’s post-production as assistant to Emma Thomas (wife of director Christopher Nolan). Sarah moved immediately into casting, working with one of London’s premiere casting offices on Alfonso Cuaron’s Children of Men. She then spent the next few years, working with up and coming British filmmakers before turning her sights to also gaining experience in the fast-paced world of television casting. Sarah freelanced for the BBC, working for top UK TV casting director Andy Morgan on some of the country’s highest rated series and mini-series such as Luther, Law & Order: UK and Inside Men.
Please note: The intent of the workshop is educational and should not be considered a job interview or audition. Attending workshops is not a way to obtain employment as an actor. The presence of a Casting Director is neither a guarantee nor a promise of employment. Contact with a Casting Director at a workshop rarely results in any further contact with that Casting Director or any company affiliated with that Casting Director.
Important: Actors will be chosen at random, on the day, to work onstage with Sarah during the seminar. Scenes will be sent out to all attendees via e-mail a few days before the seminar.
