So you're in the casting room.... Now what? How do you make sure you're being seen and remembered.?What is expected at auditions and how do they differ from eachother? Learn what happens inside the casting room of commercials, television shows, films and even Disney. We will cover what is expected from both the child and the parent and how you can help prepare your child for auditions so that they have the best chance at success. We will also cover how to create a proper demo reel and self tape. With acting tips and examples from the students- parents can get an idea of what will be expected of their child as they work to book professional work. Finally, this class will cover what it means for your child to have "a hit" and how to use it to your advantage or work against it.
One of the most challenging parts of being a young performer is knowing the protocol, terminology and expectations when working on a professional set. You will be expected to know with little direction and having a good foundation of knowledge will help your young performer feel confident and succeed once they have booked a role. We will cover different terms used and what they mean for your child, how to "hit your mark", the importance of line memorization, the roles on set, how to read a call sheet and how to be the best performer as well as professional. Using students to demonstrate acting technique, and mock set situations we will help you navigate this new world.
