Laura has worked in casting for over ten years and has worked at many of the most respected casting houses in the UK. Laura works as a Casting Director and Casting Associate with several well-known names. Shortly after starting out she cast a short film that was Oscar nominated. Laura is currently casting Absentia - Series 2 and The Outpost - Series 2.

In this online workshop, Laura will send out prepared scenes for you to self-tape 4/5 days before the class - we will send your Spotlight CV to Laura so that she can tailor the scene to suit you. You will submit two takes of the scene by WeTransfer or Vimeo.

There will then be a live Zoom session where each self-tape will be shown to the whole class and Laura will give her feedback live. There will be time at the end for a Q&A.

The deadline for the selftape is 10.00am on Wednesday 21st October, with the live Zoom feedback and Q&A meeting on Thursday 22nd October, 6-9pm.
