New! THE ART OF AUDITIONING: 3 Week Television Technique Class with Rob Decina, Casting Director, Rob Decina Casting - credits include NETWORK PILOTS and Feature Films
Other upcoming events with this guest:
Over the course of three weeks, he'll be working with you on TV audition technique for Guest Star and Series Regular roles. His no-nonsense, honest but supportive approach is designed to maximize your results. Rob's goal is to teach you how to book the job and make the best impression in the room.
In your first class, you'll learn an Audition Technique which teaches you how to make specific choices in an effort to empower yourself in an audition. Rob will share with you specific skills on "how to stand out and book the job." A clear distinction between acting and auditioning will be covered. All actors will leave class with sides.
For your second class, you'll present those sides and an emphasis will be placed on the application of the technique from class #1. Many other audition points will be discussed and worked on including the best way to start and end an audition.
In your third class, you'll go on tape for your callback with final notes emphasizing your progress from the previous class. In addition, co-star auditions will be covered.
Rob's varied background of casting primetime, daytime, film and theater combined with his work as a Director allows him to bring a unique perspective on what it takes to book the job!
