Are you interested in acting? Do you have some experience on set? Are you waiting for the text or email? This workshop will teach you the ins and outs of proper set etiquette, terminology, and personnel titles, and the difference between a background actor and featured actor. Rejection is real, and you need to deal. Through personal experience, this workshop provides advice on rejection and how to turn rejection into education.

Other components include headshot clothing colour choices, lighting, placement, auditions (photo-cast, self-tape, and in-person), resumes, and casting directors’ four pet peeves of self-tape auditions. And the one mistake you might be making in auditions.

Get ready for this interactive workshop and prepare for the unexpected – such as cold reads, faux auditions, and more.
