With more and more productions coming to the Okanagan, locals need to learn how to put their best work forward to compete with large city actors. You can learn how.

The better you understand the audition process, the more you will be asked to audition. This workshop will teach the collaborative process from the Casting Director’s view point. You will learn essential audition requirements including resumes, headshots demo reels, agents and online tools.

Actors will be sent a file of scenes/sides to chose from. Deb will share insight into how the casting director’s process works when selecting reviewing submissions, completing scene study work, self –tape recommendations, camera techniques and audition do’s and don’ts.
