Auditing is not available for this workshop
This is the How and Why of the entertainment industry:
We are in the business of collaborating with networks and studios to craft an experience for their audience.
When we understand the symbiosis that must exist between business and art, we can clearly and quickly identify and inhabit tone, style, pace, and other often missed but vital parameters.
Once we have this skill under our belt, we are able to take our auditions further, making the absolute most out of often very tight preparation time lines, and elevating work from “audition” to professional collaboration with casting. Every time.
This three-day intensive is designed to define and refine the skill and thought process behind stylistic adjustment, and provide professional awareness of the Episodic Series shooting in Toronto.
Day 1 – Friday, 12pm-3pm:
Start the weekend with a 3-hour seminar providing a detailed review of the information to be applied in the next two days of the workshop.
We’ll cover the Macro of the Media to the Micro of the moments in your auditions. We’ll use video review of tonal adjustments, digging into deep detail around the concepts explored in the Audience Experience and Incidental Hours articles, and make clear how to arrive at your best work every audition.
You will leave this seminar with an increased sense of confidence and competence in your ability to navigate through your auditions and identify and prepare efficiently for your biggest casting opportunities in the months ahead.
Day 2 and Day 3 – Saturday/Sunday 10am-2pm
You’ll delve into the network-driven but often invisible directives that define the space in which your characters should live. We’ll provide a detailed analysis including notes, and video review of four Toronto-shot series over the course of the weekend.
Working with several different scenes from those shows, you’ll work in several different styles, understand the business-logic behind why your scene lives where it does, hone the ability to adjust from one to the other on the fly, and be deeply aware of the ins and outs of each of the shows.
The result is a well-earned confidence in the material and in character choice, and the presentation of a competent professional who adds collaborative value to every single audition.
