This online class will provide feedback from an experienced casting professional. No more than 20 performers will be participating.
When a new Casting Access Online class is announced, eligible performers RSVP to request a space in the class and are added to the class on a first-come/first-served basis. Confirmed participants will be notified by e-mail.
The date listed for the class is the day enrollment and cancellation close, and your headshots are sent to the casting director. Later that week, participants will receive sides specially selected for them by the participating casting director.
Once you have received your sides, you will have until the deadline to rehearse, record, and upload a video containing your performance of the sides. You will upload the video using your YouTube account and email the video link. Finally, the casting director will review your workshop video and provide notes.
