BEHIND THE CASTING COUCH
Nicci Topping talks through the casting process from the perspective of a casting director: what they are looking for, why they chose one actor over another, what you can do to up your chances of a successful casting. You’ll also have the chance to take part in a Q&A and ask those questions you’ve always wanted the lowdown on.
BEHIND THE SCENES
You’re in for a treat! Nicole Barber Lane is one of the UK’s best loved soap actors, and in this workshop you’ll hear from her about the ins-and-outs of a professional, working film/TV set and she’ll give you value packed advice so you can arrive with confidence on your next job.
Nicole will look at the entire process the average actor will go through from audition attitude to booking the job. She’ll talk about industry terminology, hitting marks etc. You’ll look at genuine call-sheets and sides, job description, duties and hierarchy of the crew.
She will go over the different travel situations (details/pick-ups) one might encounter, costume fittings, doing your own stunts, understanding the various kinds of relationships that actors can build whilst meeting and working with new people. Who is the actor’s best friend on the set? She will answer this and many more questions during this workshop.
An actor who is hired for a job is essentially being invited to be part of a “team” and knowing how should fit in on that crew is paramount. Nicole will spill the beans on all this and more.
