Advanced course (only for professional actors – graduates or students of theatre and film schools).

During the online meetings, the actors attending the course, under the guidance of a casting director, will prepare their model email with an acting portfolio.

The workshop will begin with an introduction to thinking about casting as an important part of creative work on a film and what an actor/actress should know about how a model cast for a film is created. We will then discuss how an actress/actor can prepare well for a studio meeting and how to record a selfie – selftape + business card.

The casting director will share methods on how to analyse a scene for casting. During the workshop, we will analyse how an actress/actor can create “her own brand” and how she can adequately present themselves to the world; we will try to select together appropriate scenes for a selftape recording. As a result of the joint group workshop meetings and individual online discussions, each participant will prepare a video, on the basis of which you can prepare an email to promote your acting workshop.

The course will include five 3-hour meetings (with 6 people in a group); with more people there will be additional meetings extended with time for individual meetings. The workshop will be divided into a block of theoretical (lecture) classes and a block of practical classes under the supervision of the casting director. In addition, there will be individual online meetings twice – on the third and fifth classes (about 15-20 minutes of conversation).

Meeting dates: three in February and two in March 2024.
