Description

Who: Casting Director Ben Cogan

In this seminar, Ben will begin by offering a background of his career to date, with a focus on his work Casting for the BBC and several high-profile Television series such as Casualty, EastEnders & Holby City. Ben will explain how the casting process works and the most common pitfalls that actors fall into. He will also discuss how to approach and prepare for an audition, perform within it and essentially how to embrace and enjoy it!

The seminar will also involve working with actors on-stage, on cold-reading skills and how to give the best audition possible when faced with being asked to give a cold-read in an audition. Ben will provide scenes for a select number of actors from the audience and offer a practical demonstration on how cold-reads can be fun!

The seminar will end with a Q+A session from the audience, where you will get the chance to ask the questions.

Ben Cogan has worked in casting for 15 years. He began as a Casting Assistant for many shows (including EastEnders, Holby City and Waking the Dead) before becoming the Casting Director for Doctors in 2002. 380 episodes later, Ben moved to Casualty, and, in his time there, 6 episodes that he worked on were recognised with BAFTA nominations. During this period he also worked on the Afternoon Play series, Kiss of Death and various short films - one of which (Wish 143) was nominated for an Oscar. Ben is now a freelance Casting Director having cast feature film Just Charlie (Winner of the Edinburgh Film Festival Audience Award), Trendy and Amaryllis (both about to be released) as well as award winning short films and has just finished work on his first children's drama; Apple Tree House for CBeebies.
