Here's your opportunity to work with this TOP NY CD who is one of the most actor friendly CD's in the biz! Meghan has been casting films and television and teaching on-camera classes in New York City for 15 years.
Meghan is casting and producing 2 independent films: a 'coming of age' film titled ANTARCTICA and a thriller titled CENTIGRADE.
In this 4 week class, each week will build on the last and all sessions will be on-camera. The course will start off with cold sides so that Meghan can get a "feel" for your type as well as an opportunity to focus on each actor's individual on-camera habits and how this could affect your audition. From there, she will focus on both prepared sides including feature/indie films as well as television sides.
You will also self-tape and submit to see how well you are coming across to casting directors who you don't know you as an actor.
Week 1- Cold Sides
Week 2- Prepared sides
Weeks 3 & 4- Self Tape Assignment - Learn what can make or break your on-line auditions
*Based off of your training with Meghan, she will suggest scenes best suited for you and your reel!
This is a wonderful opportunity to be coached by an expert in TV and film!
