If indie and feature films are what you want to be doing, make sure you’ve trained on-camera. When you are on set, most directors don’t have time to work with you and EXPECT you to be able to deliver the goods in the moment. That’s why when you are in the audition/director’s session, your first take MUST be your best from the get-go. NEVER expect a second chance.
For actors who are transitioning from stage to film and TV and want to get the skills necessary to work in the industry, I would recommend taking From Stage to Screen led by Jeffrey Dreisbach, Casting Director.
This two week online class is designed to work specifically on TV/Film audition technique, how to work in the medium of film/TV as opposed to stage as well as a greater understanding of the industry as a whole.
