The Actors Door Studio Audition Workshop is an intensive 2 half days workshop, ideal for actors who want to learn and actively exercise their auditioning skills.
To give attendees maximum benefit of the workshop, it is run over 2 consecutive Sundays.
On the first Sunday, attendees will be taken through a theoretical component in which they will learn about the audition process.
DAY 1: THEORY (TOPICS COVERED)
- Audition preparation
- The cold read
- The Self-tape
- Personalising the text
- Connecting with the camera
- Making lasting impressions
DAY 2: PRACTICE/AUDITION SIMULATION
The second component of the workshop is practical and is designed to simulate the audition process. A few days prior to the second Sunday, we will send out short audition sides to attendees. You will choose one of the pieces to prepare for the workshop. This preparation work is aimed at helping you put into practice what you learned the preceding Sunday.
In Day 2, you will have the chance to perform your piece on camera in front of the group, and later workshop your performance under the instruction of your teacher.
After the audition, we will send you your filmed performance which you can use as a showreel.
The workshop is open to all (you do not need to be an Actors Door Studio student to attend).
There are no specific acting requirements for the workshop other than at least basic acting knowledge/experience.
WHY TAKE THE AUDITION WORKSHOP:
An audition or a casting is an essential part to an actor getting a role. During the audition, casting directors and directors test the actor’s skills in acting, as well as their ability to embody the character they are casting for. As a result, a great deal rests on a successful audition.
Auditioning, much like interviewing for a new job, requires preparation, stress management, knowledge of auditioning techniques; all these on top of your acting skills. Whilst acting classes and courses develop your acting abilities and help nurture your talents in performance, they often do not teach crucial skills and techniques required for successful casting.
It is for this specific reason that we have developed the workshop; to get actors audition ready.
