Who else, other than actors, has to interview for so many jobs over the course of a career? In this industry, actors audition far more than they work, and not only do they have to know how to prepare for an execute an audition for any gig (film, TV, commercial, corporate, etc.), they have to know how to deal with rejection in a hyper competitive field.
Students who take this workshop will also want to strongly consider enrolling in our Working Actor Intensive, which will be held on June 14.

In this intensive, students will get to practice in front of the camera multiple times in a positive and supportive environment, working on copy from TV, film, commercial, and corporate auditions. Actors will participate in simulated auditions: transitioning from the lobby, into the casting room, onto slating, into the sides, and learning how to leave the audition with your head held high. We will also go over the do’s and don’ts of our local casting directors.
Taught by founders David S. Hogan and Angela DiMarco, this fun and fast paced intensive will give students a combination of craft and confidence that is needed to book the callback and the job.
