New! 2-Week Online FEATURE FILM/TV Class with Emmy-Award Winner Paul Ruddy CSA, Casting Director, Paul Ruddy Casting

Saturday, June 12, 2021, 4pm ET / 1pm PT

This event is in the past.

Here's your chance to work with an Emmy Award Winner for Casting for EASTSIDERS on Netflix! 

Paul's new 2-week online class will replicate the "real world" television/film audition process and give you insider industry tips to help you book!

Over the course of two weeks, Paul will be working with you on how to bring your best work into your auditions. The goal will be to focus on the work (not the audition) to allow you to always be at your best. Each week will build on the last and you'll work on a variety of sides on-camera.

Paul will assign scenes in advance for you to prepare. Each online class will start off with a Q&A and from there you'll be working with Paul and a reader for notes and adjustments.

For this online class, Paul will select sides for you to prepare based on your headshot and fully completed MY INFO section in your AC account
