BRAND NEW CLASS! Join us for our FIRST TIME 3-Night Online Seen Vs. Unseen Intensive with HEAD Casting Director at Castleberry/Murphy Casting, Kendra Castleberry! 

 

This class is for actors age 18+, no minors!

 

This class is limited to 12 actors. 

 

You will be working on scene study, cold-reading and audition techniques. This class will be held online via Zoom. This will be a live, interactive class with a Q&A and the opportunity to perform for and get feedback from Kendra. You will be able to download the recordings of your performances for educational purposes only. 

 

LESSON PLAN: 

This 3-week ZOOM class will focus on how an actor is perceived by casting versus  how they want to be perceived.  And trying to find a bridge between the two. 

 

IN ADVANCE: 

Actors will submit their headshot, resume and demo (if they have one) to Kendra, no  later than 3 days prior to Class 1. 

 

WEEK 1: 

Lecture covering the following topics: 

• My background 

• What is the role of a casting director? 

• Differing qualifications for various projects and roles 

Scenework: Based on the materials submitted by the actor in advance, an assigned  scene will be sent to actors 24-48 hours prior to class.  Actors will read 1-on-1 with  me, but in front of the entire class.  Notes and redirection will be given to every  actor.

 

WEEK 2: 

Lecture covering the following topics: 

• Tracking projects/roles that are right for you 

• Building your personal sides/script library 

• Creating Your Actor Resource Bubble 

Scenework: Actors will prepare a 2-3 page scene of their choice, which highlights  how they’d like to be seen.  All sides must be from projects that have already been  cast and produced/aired and sent to me 24-48 hours prior to class to review. Actors  will read 1-on-1 with me, but in front of the entire class.  Notes and redirection will  be given to every actor. 

Actors will have an opportunity at the end of each class on Weeks 1 and 2 to ask  questions, so as to gain further understanding of the day’s lesson. 

 

WEEK 3: 

Lecture covering the following topics: 

• Enhanced marketing materials (website, press packets) 

• How to use social media to advance your career 

• Building your team 

Following the lecture, actors will be brought in 1-on-1 (in 10 minute blocks) to  discuss how they felt about the scenes they got to do the first two weeks, address  individual concerns, brainstorm solutions to any frustrations and make pro-active  adjustments for the future. 

 

NOTE: It is required that actors who sign up for this class be able to attend all  3 weeks.  Each actor’s takes of their scenes will be taped for their personal  records and review.  No video or audio recordings of any other portion of the  class (lecture, redirection or feedback) are allowed. 

 

DISCLAIMER: 

This workshop is a learning experience.  It is not an audition or employment  opportunity.  As such, when this class is over, I will NOT be taking home, nor be  given access to your headshot, resume, or any of your promotional materials.

 

The three-week online intensive will be held via Zoom on Fridays, May 28th, June 4th & 11th from 5:00PM-7:30PM PST / 8:00PM-10:30PM EST.
