Led by Casting Director Suzy Catliff CDG
Sold Out Join Waiting List
£24.00

Date: May 28th
Time: 10.00

In this online workshop, Suzy will send out prepared scenes for you to self-tape 4 days before the class - we will send your Spotlight CV to Suzy so that she can tailor the scene to suit you. You can submit two takes of the scene by WeTransfer or Vimeo and Suzy will give specific direction for each take. Suzy will record herself reviewing your takes and will give personalised feedback. She will also record herself offering a personalised critique on your Spotlight CV and showreel.

There will also be the opportunity to submit 2 questions and get honest answers - questions arising from the self-taping process or regarding Suzy's experiences of the casting process. Suzy will provide written answers to all the question received from the class, so you will have the opportunity to get answers to questions you may not have thought of. (Please submit 3 questions by email to TAG so that we can pass them on to Suzy and avoid duplications.)

You will each receive your personalised feed back on your takes, Spotlight CV and showreels as well as a group “questions answered” document 3 days after the class date.
