For this live Zoom workshop, 4 days before the workshop, Suzy will send out prepared scenes for you to self-tape.  Prior to this we will have sent your Spotlight CV to Suzy so that she can tailor the scene to suit you. You will then send one take of each scene to Suzy by WeTransfer prior to the workshop. All self-tapes to be sent to mail@actorsguild.co.uk by the deadline of 10.00am on 6th August.

Suzy will prepare her feedback based on your choices in the scene and will also discuss the technical aspects of your self tape and give advice for improvement.

The feedback workshop will happen on Zoom and the workshop will be live. 

Suzy will screen share and put the self-tapes into my iMovie, so you will all be able to watch the scenes as a group and learn from each others self tapes.   

Suzy will then discuss each self tape and give feedback.  Everyone will be able to share experiences, thoughts and ask specific questions. 

At the end there will be a group Q&A.
