This event is in the past.

TV Hosting is no longer what it used to be. The role of the "host" is now a challenging combination of reality, entertainment and information. In this new 3 hour intensive, you'll learn the difference between hosting for reality TV as well as hosting for traditional programming.

You'll get an overview of the industry as it stands, including what casting directors are now looking for, the new search for talent from a casting directors perspective, audition styles and what you can do to improve your chances of booking work.

Jamie will help you to build your Hosting and auditioning skills and to define your role as the expert. She'll also cover interview techniques as well as copy critiques on camera. You'll learn how to break old habits, find your rooted self, and still get the words across in a commanding way through lots of on-camera time and coaching!

Always bring a hardcopy of your headshot/resume to class for feedback purposes.
