Be prepared to work fast, and learn a lot in the process! In this workshop, you’ll learn the tricks of the trade to “up your game” in the unavoidable world of auditioning. You’ll work with a short audition script, provided by email a couple of days in advance.
This class will teach you how to make your auditions come alive. It will address Film/TV auditions, cold reads, and commercial auditions, in the format of getting an audition script, rehearsing it, taping it, getting a critique, and taping it again.
ABOUT ROBIN DAUGHERTY
