Winnipeg Film Group: ACTING FOR FILM AND TV IN A COVID WORLD WITH REBECCA GIBSON - Zoom Workshop, August 9

COVID has changed how actors work. From the audition process to the on-set experience, everything has changed. In our changing world, there is also a tremendous opportunity for diverse actors to claim roles in the wealth of film and television productions that are emerging through the pandemic.

Back by popular demand, award-winning director/producer/writer/actor Rebecca Gibson brings her vital workshop to the Winnipeg Film Group to help people book roles. As a former casting director, Rebecca has seen all aspects of the casting process, and has participated in thousands of auditions. The one thing that often holds actors back in their goals is weak film and television acting technique. As a highly sought after acting coach (including for the series Burden of Truth), Rebecca helps actors prepare for any situation. As a director who works across the country, Rebecca has brought out the best in highly seasoned actors, and people who had never before set foot on a set. Rebecca is up-to-date on the latest COVID protocols, and will share not only how to get work, but how to work safely.

This class will bring you into the audition process, from prep through call-backs and negotiating your deal, to the on-set experience. It is ideal for directors, producers, and anyone who wants to accelerate their acting career, and their understanding of the film and television industry and working in the new COVID world.

This special online ZOOM workshop takes place Sunday, Aug. 9th, 2020 from 9am-5pm. Cost is $50 for WFG Members, ACTRA Members, self-identifying Black, Indigenous, People of Color, LGBTQ2SI+, female-identifying and people with disabilities and a $100 General fee.
