    Every module will have an original script written specifically for that module. You will then learn how to break down the script and apply that into your audition. Several scripts each year will be produced into a short film. Check out the films we’ve made on our PORTFOLIO page.

  • Audition Tips

    DON’T WAIT TIL THE LAST MINUTE. Book early and allow yourself enough time to do your audition right. If your audition is due right away, remember it takes time to render the files and send them out.

    BRING A COPY OF YOUR SIDES FOR THE READER. If you’re trying to save the environment like I am, send a copy via Email and I can read it off the iPad.

    TELEPROMPTER. If you have something you need to read off the teleprompter, copy the text into the email way in advance. I can’t put pdf’s into the teleprompter, only text from an email.

    KNOW YOUR PASSWORDS. We’re able to upload to Actor’s Access for you if you need us to. Please have your passwords handy. I also highly recommend subscribing to ShowFax so all your uploads are free.

    BRING TAPING INSTRUCTIONS. We’re very familiar with how local casting wants their files, but even they change from project to project. Play it safe and bring the taping instructions with you.
