Television Casting and How To Crack the Audition, with Sonia Allam (CDG)
Wed 22 March 2017, 13:30 – 16:00 GMT
Sonia will use her wealth of experience from working on the casting of major TV series for both the BBC, ITV & Channel 4 to help guide you through the casting process and how the actor fits into this. The seminar will cover aspects such as auditioning for TV and how to approach a casting director and come across in a professional manner.
Sonia will start by working with some actors on stage in improvisation technique and drama games. For the main part of the seminar, Sonia will work with a number of actors from the seminar audience on some cold-read sides. This will create a mock audition environment with a focus on casting for TV and how you can ensure that you go in and give the best audition that you can.
The seminar will end with the chance to ask Sonia your questions about the casting process as well as any questions regarding your acting career.
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 from the audience on the day of the seminar. All sides will be provided on the day.
