We cordially invite each of you to join us for this enjoyable, educational and intimate evening of lively discussion.
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.
A ticket to the Sunday Industry Panel ($50 value) is included when you take the 3-day Auditioning by Heart Intensive for no extra charge. “The Sunday Industry Panel” takes place directly after the conclusion of the 3-day "Auditioning by Heart" training on Sunday night. Click Here
A ticket to the Sunday Industry Panel ($50 value) is yours for a reduced fee of $10 for having just finished the one day class during the Summer 2019 session. It’s our way of thanking you for returning again on Sunday after you finished ReActing by Heart on Thursday night. Click Here
Auditioning by Heart Alumni:
A ticket to the Sunday Industry Panel ($50 value) is yours for a reduced fee of $25 because you’ve taken the 3-day Auditioning by Heart Intensive in the past. It’s our way of thanking you for being part of the Auditioning by Heart family.
General Public and Actors:
A ticket to the Sunday Industry Panel is yours for a fee of $50. We’re very happy to meet you and hope you come back in the future to enroll in both the ReActing by Heart class and the 3-day Auditioning by Heart Intensive. They are career changing experiences! We’d love to have you as a future part of the Auditioning by Heart family.
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.
NOTE: There is no guarantee as to which Industry Professionals from the worlds of Casting, Acting and Agenting will be a part of this incredible and enlightening Industry Panel Q&A. However, the evening has always been a highlight for those who have experienced it.
