After rave reviews and tons of class requests, we're thrilled to have Rob teaching our newest on-camera audition class. A Casting Director for over 20 years, he's auditioned, discovered and hired thousands of actors in that time. He knows what works and what gets an actor noticed in the room. Over the course of two weeks, he'll be working with you on TV audition technique for Guest Star and Series Regular roles. His no-nonsense, honest but supportive approach is designed to maximize your results. Rob's goal is to teach you how to book the job and make the best impression in the room.
Over the course of two weeks, Rob will be working with you on TV audition technique for Guest Star and Series Regular roles.
In your first class, you'll learn an Audition Technique which teaches you how to make specific choices in an effort to empower yourself in an audition. Rob will share with you specific skills on "how to stand out and book the job." A clear distinction between acting and auditioning will be covered. All actors will leave class with sides.
For your second class, you'll present those sides and an emphasis will be placed on the application of the technique from class #1. Many other audition points will be discussed and worked on including the best way to start and end an audition. This class will be on tape and you will be given specific notes to work on. In addition, co-star auditions will be covered.
**Your scene is video taped & made into a movie clip!
After this class, you will receive an email with a link so
you can watch your own video clip from this class.
