We are very pleased to welcome back Emma Sylvester who is working in house at the BBC in it’s continuing drama department and works assisting John Cannon & Stephen Moore on Holby City. 

Casting for Screen aims to demystify the process of auditioning for screen, to simplify and build confidence while honing your audition technique for screen auditions.

In this online workshop, Emma will send out prepared scenes for you to self-tape 4/5 days before the class - we will send your Spotlight CV to Emma 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 Emma 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 Monday 28th June, with the live Zoom feedback and Q&A meeting on Wednesday 30th June, 6-9pm.

All self-tapes to be sent to The Actors Guild: mail@actorsguild.co.uk
