Course Description

Today’s technology (and a post pandemic film industry) mean the home self-tape has become more important than ever in film and TV casting. This workshop equips you with the skills to create a stand-out on screen calling card. 

 

Katy brings her many years of first hand experience from both sides of the camera to share screen acting techniques and practical tips such as lighting, presentation and what a casting director is looking for. 

 

The workshop will look at both self tape and ‘in the room’ screen audition techniques.

 

Bring your own monologues to work on and your phones. There will also be a selection of film scripts available.
