These topics will be discussed during class:
• The casting process from script to shooting
• How episodic TV auditions vary from auditions for pilots, film or theatre
• The basics of script analysis (who, what, where, when, why?)
• The importance of watching “TV” as homework and how to gain insight from
it for your auditions
• Feeling and conveying confidence in the audition room
• How to interpret confusing direction
• Letting the audition go and moving on to the next
• The role of the casting director
A selection of sides will be sent out to actors 48 hours prior to class.
Actors will work on sides 1-on-1 with Kendra but in front of the entire class.
Thoughtful and specific feedback will be given to each actor and selected sections
run again to incorporate educational notes.
There will also be a time for Q&A, allowing actors to get clarity on anything they saw
in class or get specific answers on topics of their choosing.
This class 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.
