This event is in the past.
Here's a RARE opportunity to work with a casting director from one of the most prominent film casting offices in town!
Currently, Sig is interested in meeting talent of all types and ethnicities 18+ for current and future projects. His office is known for calling in actors directly - many who have recently BOOKED!
For this one night intensive, Sig would like you to select a scene from his variety of sides that you feel best showcases your strengths as an actor. The event will start off with an informative Q&A, followed by your presentation of the scene with a reader on-camera in a group. Be prepared to take feedback and adjustments.
Please select one scene from the INSTRUCTOR SIDES database (link located in your Actors Connection account upon registration). Please bring in TWO copies of your chosen scene - one for you, and one for your reader (with the reader's lines highlighted).
Always bring a hardcopy of your headshot/resume to class for feedback purposes.
Scenes will be recorded on-camera and made available to you within one week. An email notification will be sent from videos@actorsconnection.
