“Actor Traps” – Part Two:

We are going to cover different genre traps, more tips/tricks and practice to get you ready to book the room!

Class Starts September 27

What does a self-tape that gets a “callback” look like?

What is the role of casting directors, network executives & directors when it comes to casting a project?

How are virtual producer sessions going to work?

As an actor, there are so many factors out of our control.


The Audition Process is Getting Disrupted.

Do you want to level up your self-tape auditions?

Are you getting self-tape requests less than once a week?

Do you think: I was taught how to audition in school but self-tapes are a different animal. How do I get better?


We are leveling up this three-week offering combining all the things you loved from our previous classes. From Self-Tape Challenges to Live Chemistry Reads for EVERYONE, Tips, Support, Community and more!

The Audition Process is Getting Disrupted.

As the industry begins to open up, casting will be depending on self-tapes and virtual sessions to book actors. How do you navigate taking notes virtually? Using the frame via Zoom? Re-shooting your self-tapes with notes from casting? Welcome to…

What We Will Cover

Each week we will tackle a different genre: 1) Triage, 2) Horror and 3) Creating a World (Sci-Fi). From how to incorporate physical impediments to all of those HIGH stakes hospital procedural shows to creating suspense (even when you feel silly) with Horror sides and finally how to bring a world to life for Sci-Fi scenes! Live Sessions will be held Fridays from 11a to 1p (PDT).

First two weeks, self-tape auditions are submitted and we will showcase a handful of selected students' tapes with notes.

Final Week will be A Live Zoom Audition Session where EVERY student will have a chemistry read.

Private discussion group for students to post their tapes each week and create a community with other students

Sessions will be recorded and sent to all students. Students will have access to the playback for the duration of the course and two weeks after.

By the end of this course, you will...
