This course is designed for both actors who want to take their auditioning skills to the next level and directors who want to learn how to properly cast their projects. Actors will explore how to prepare their auditions for different genres, including film, television, comedy, drama and commercials as well as practice techniques that will enhance their ability to take direction and pivot at a moment's notice. Directors will work on how to organize and run an audition, communicate with actors and what's essential in casting an actor for a role. During class time students will also work together to film scenes, which may enhance their actors' reel and serve as a resource for directors.
