Description

HOW WILL IT WORK?​

​So you’re an actor… And you’re going in to show your work to a casting director. How do you make sure they want to see you again for another role?

Learn the ways to look after yourself so as to achieve the very best work in the room

“Don’t focus on booking the job. Focus on booking the room.”

The workshop focuses on:

  1. A sense of play - a feeling there is only your character, there is no script.

  2. What to expect in different casting rooms.

  3. How to focus on your strengths and not worry about the weaknesses.

  4. My new mantra: “Work harder. Care Less."

PREPARATION:

IMPORTANT: When you book please email your CV and headshot immediately to hello@themonobox.co.uk clearly labelled with your name. This will enable Ed to email you your sides ahead of the workshop.

The weekend before the workshop, you will be sent “sides” (roughly 3 pages of dialogue) based on your age, gender and headshot (yes, your headshot). The sides will be genuine audition scenes for recent professional screen projects (Netflix, BBC, American Networks and major feature films).

You should come to the workshop “off-book”, but without overly worrying about being word-perfect. Instead you will want to focus your preparation on the beats of the scene, what is happening and what thoughts make you do each or say things.

You will all be able sent the recordings of your auditions, filmed on Canon 70D.
