Workshop Description

We’ve seen the casting business move toward self-taping in the last few years. This trend will continue and expand as time goes on. Whether it’s college auditions for this fall, meeting agents before pilot season, or trying to break into the business through open calls, you’ll need to get your act together and present good work within the constraints on online meeting tools and self-submissions. From “where should I look?” to “what do they expect?” we’ll look at crafting monologues and cold reads that survive social distancing

Requirements/Materials Needed

-Students will need to prepare one 60-90 sec monologue.  However, students can still participate that do not have a monologue
