Knowing first hand that watching actors in film and television can change lives, Auditioning by Heart continues to strive to do all we can to support the actors' growth; spiritually, personally and professionally. In an effort to do just that, directly after the end of the 3-day Auditioning by Heart Intensive workshop, we have produced an Industry Panel filled with professionals (such as working Agents, Casting Directors, Producers and other Industry professionals) who are dedicated to hearing from, educating and getting to know, you!
We appreciate your professionalism on the day, and look forward to hearing your questions and seeing your smiling face at THE SUNDAY INDUSTRY PANEL.
No resumes will be accepted. You will not be performing for the panel. This is a very special opportunity to hear from the working professionals to learn what some of the common phrases used within our industry actually mean. "Be off book" is short hand for a very important piece of homework. HINT: It ISN'T memorizing your lines. "Don't move off of your mark" is also shorthand for a longer instruction. HINT: It ISN'T stand still and face camera. "Less is more", "Don't use props" and on and on... It takes far too long to write out in the audition breakdowns what these instructions mean, come and find out for yourself what they're trying to tell you.
If you would like to register to participate in one of the " Auditioning By Heart" workshops there are spaces available!
