John Ort, Major TV Casting Director

Date: Tue 6/25 @ 7pm

We are thrilled to welcome back leading Casting Director, John Ort!


John has been working in Casting in NYC for over 10 years on high profile projects such as a recent Tom Hooper directed Capital One commercial.


This class will focus on on-camera audition techniques for TELEVISION including the differences between approaching series regular material versus guest and co-starring roles.

Based on your actor webpage, John will assign each actor sides to prepare prior to class.

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.

Please go to MY ACCOUNT to create your One on One Webpage. It's especially important so that the casting director for this workshop can view your webpage! The area to build your webpage is located under "My Account."  Please look for your sides to be posted approximately 1-3 days in advance.

***Class Structure is subject to change.

This seminar or class is for educational purposes only and will not secure or provide opportunity for employment in the field or representation by an agent. One on One is bonded in the State of California: #70978001
