Date: Mon 3/25 @ 7pm
We are thrilled to welcome back leading Casting Director, John Ort! For over a decade, John has cast some of today's BIGGEST hits such as TV Land's Younger, Netflix's Ozark, USA's Royal Pains, S.H.I.E.L.D., Blindspot, plus many more! Before joining this huge network, John worked with MEGA CDs Rosalie Joseph and Marci Phillips!
John will focus on on-camera audition techniques for TELEVISION, such as the differences between approaching series regular material versus guest and co-starring roles. The class will begin with a Q&A with John. Each actor will be put ON-CAMERA and perform their sides which will be provided in advance. You will receive intensive feedback and adjustments from John and he will have you perform the scene again.
Based on your actor webpage, John will assign each actor sides to prepare prior to class.
**Your scene is video taped & made into a movie clip!
