We are pleased to welcome back Casting Director Shakyra Dowling CSA who is currently casting a number of both British and European Feature Films including SCARBOROUGH, NAKED NORMANDY and NOCTURNAL.

Following an introduction from Shakyra participants will be paired up and have a chance to read through their scenes. Sides will be sent out shortly before the workshop along with character breakdowns, as she would for a real casting.

Shakyra would like participants to be as familar with text as possible.

Honest feedback will be given in a supportive environment before participants have the change to do a second take. This will be followed by a short tea break and an informal Q&A.
