Introduction to how the world of casting works.
What are the mistakes not to make? How to best approach an audition?
In-depth study of CV and photographic material useful for presenting oneself to auditions.
The video audition: Presentations, self tape and interpretation
The business card of an actor, together with the show-reel, is the presentation, which is requested in 99% of the video auditions. We will work to understand how best to deal with this part of the audition.
More and more often Casting Directors are asked to send self-tapes to participate in auditions, but most actors, even with many years of experience, are unable to make them. A part of the course will be dedicated to explaining how to make them, obtaining at the end of the lesson an example of personal self-tape on your phone, which can be used for auditions.
Before getting to work with the camera, it is necessary that the students develop the perception of their own body, in space and in relation to others. They must also hone their trust in the director or casting director who will give them the indications to best interpret the character, and understand how to follow them and put them into practice.
In the final Casting lesson, at the end of one's training course, a simulation of an audition will be performed on a dialogue taken from a film.
The aim of the course is to provide students with all the tools necessary to face an audition, making sure that everyone can find their own naturalness in front of the camera.
