3 Week Online FILM/TV AUDITION TECHNIQUE with "Emmy and Artios Award Winner" - Judy Henderson, Casting Director, Judy Henderson Casting

Friday, April 9, 2021, 7pm ET / 4pm PT

This event is in the past.

A legend in the business, Judy's casting credits include Showtime's HOMELAND, the new Showtime series CITY ON A HILL as well as tons of feature/indie films, commercials and theater.

In her online 3 week class, each week will build on the last. The course will start off with a week of cold sides so Judy 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. Week 2 you'll be emailed film sides to prepare in advance working with readers, scene partners, blocking and rehearsing your sides, all on camera. The final week will be a final "performance" replicating a final studio "test".

Assigned sides will be emailed 1-3 days in advance from Judy. 

If you've taken Judy's class before, she asks that you wait at least 18 months before taking it again.
