The auditions we get in early July are worth MORE than the ones we get at the end of the year. There’s more to gain, and more to lose. Whether it’s a re-introduction to casting or more shots at characters that will recur more often, now is the time to be on point.
The global content demand explosion in our industry, and especially in Canada. With new media, a low Canadian dollar, and a world-class pool of talent and skill, opportunity abounds. It is time to make hay, and up our careers by being the most prepared, the most focussed out of the gate.
We’ll work on Network Intelligence, review the ins and outs of every TV Series set to shoot locally this Harvest Season, work out your specific business and marketing to do’s, and practice the skills of creating ‘Bookable Moments’ to make sure we make the most of those 5 line and under auditions.
There is both practical and theory-based value to this workshop, so actors have a participation option for either:
Seminar Participants ($170) will be prepared to prepare for the work:
- Gain the industry, seasonal and personal perspective needed to productively and expertly prepare to collaborate with casting for every audition.
- Develop a business-driven perspective that will inform choice.
- Learn exactly what they need to work on in the next few weeks, setting up their pilot season and year.
Active Participants ($377 – very limited space) will put it all in to practice.
- Work new materials on camera each day, and
- Be guided through their personal adjustment to style and making it work on camera.
- Develop a personal practical ownership of the styles of each network.
- Thoroughly understand where they fit for each show
- All acting work is filmed provided for download and review.
** All Participants will receive the 2016 Harvest Season Handbook with detailed notes on every series shooting this season **
