In this class, Amy Gossels will touch on many of the critical things actors can do to vastly improve their on-camera auditions. The class will consist of a talk, during which Amy will share her innovative approach to commercial copy and game changing cold-read technique, followed by audition coaching with each actor and wrap up with a Q&A. While actors will be working with commercial copy at this particular class, Amy’s approach and technique can be applied to elevate ALL on-camera auditions.
Copy will be sent with a ZOOM Invitation the morning of the class. Copy should NOT be memorized.
Copy will be assigned based on actor headshots. If you want to send an updated headshot, it should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for the reader by 5pm EST/2pm PST on Thursday, March 16th. The subject needs to be Casting Access - Amy Gossels.
