HOW TO AUDITION FOR FILM AND TELEVISION
After working for over thirty-seven years as a Casting Director with some of the best directors and producers in our business, I have gained an extensive knowledge of what it takes to get the job.
For the last several years, in addition to my ongoing casting work, I have been coaching actors to help them prepare for upcoming auditions and jobs.
Many times while working on a project I see actors come in who are so ill-prepared for their audition, I want to take them aside and educate them. Talent and looks can get you only so far; in this day and age of dwindling scripted projects, the dedicated actor needs to be trained in the art of showing up prepared, present and ready to work.
I teach actors what they need to know before, during and after their auditions. I use my skills as a Casting Director to prepare them to win the part...before they even enter the room. Your audition should not feel like a visit to the doctor! It is your time to show us what you've got. I will help you feel more in your body than you've ever felt before.
In an intimate, one-on-one setting, I map out each actor's personal path for success. With kids and newer actors who are just starting out, I teach them what they can expect in an audition. With seasoned professionals, I tailor each session to suit an individual's needs and experience, from running lines to breaking down the character to find its inner life.
