Sunday 25th April 2010

10.30-12.30 am & 1.30-5.00 pm
Shaw Theatre, London NW1


The Directors Guild Trust and FuseLondon are delighted to announce a joint workshop designed to help directors and actors get the most from the audition process across theatre, film and TV. Three experienced casting directors will oversee auditions by participating directors in each genre, using professional actors. There are also some places for observers.

GUEST CASTING AGENTS

Catherine Willis- TV: Catherine has a huge amount of experience casting for TV, including ‘Waking the Dead’, ‘Casualty’, ‘Little Miss Jocelyn’, ‘Coming Up’, ‘Dead Set’, and ‘FM’ and recently 'Criminal Justice'. Catherine currently has 3 more TV projects in post-production. Catherine on IMDB

Manuel Puro- FILM: Manuel worked alongside Jeremy Zimmerman casting many feature films including; ‘The Scorpion King 2’, ‘Land Girls’ and ‘When Saturday Comes’ with Sean Bean. Now as a casting director in his own right he has cast ‘Thick As Thieves’ with Morgan Freeman, ‘Dead Man Running’ with Danny Dyer and currently has a whopping 6 features in Post and Pre-Production. Manuel on IMDB

Ginny Schiller- THEATRE: Ginny has a long list of casting credits, including resident casting director posts at Soho Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre, and the RSC where she cast The Complete Works season. Other companies who have benefited from Ginny’s expertise include: Regent’s Park, ETT, Rose Theatre, Kingston, Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, Oxford Playhouse, Bristol Old Vic, Birmingham Rep, Young Vic and Theatre Clwyd. She also has experience casting TV, Film and Radio. (TO BE CONFIRMED)

THE DAY

The workshop day will be split into two halves. The morning session (10.30 – 12.30 am) is a discussion and Q & A just for the three casting directors, the participating directors and the observers to talk frankly about the audition process.

After lunch (1.30 – 4.30 pm) the actors groups will join us for ‘on your feet’ auditions with pre-prepared scripts.  The afternoon is broken up into three sessions across three spaces in which practise castings are set up and work-shopped. Each audition space will have one casting director specialising in their field; in each session, 5 directors and 4 actors will work for 50mins on a script of that genre, with observers.
 
At the end of each session, the groups swap round, so by the end of the day all the directors will have worked with all 3 casting directors, tried auditions in each genre (theatre, film and TV), and will have worked with all of the actors in the workshop. (Actors will be sent the scripts in advance of the workshop.)

At the end of the day (4.30 – 5 pm) the groups come together for a final Q&A session.

BENEFITS OF THE WORKSHOP

•    Meet and work with 3 experienced casting directors
•    Meet and practise / observe auditioning a group of new professional actors
•    Learn how to get the best from your actors in audition


Places for this workshop are limited and on a “first-come” basis.
