So what did you do over the holidays…?
I was honored to be teaching with some extremely talented colleagues collaborating with Astra Films and Kultburo in Moscow, Russia. No, it wasn’t that cold- it was ski time weather- PERFECT! Discussion included casting and auditioning in America, and how to prepare to work in the US. I loved our interaction during our one on one and small group coaching and exercises geared to prepare for feature auditions, the audition room, on-camera technique and how to interview.

My latest Backstage article is up. This month’s tip- Self-taping- read on…
With shorter production, tighter budgets, and more out-of-state shoots, a taped audition may become your first—and sometimes only—connection with casting directors, producers and directors. A self-taped audition may be submitted when you’re out of town, on-set, facing scheduling challenges (you have too many appointments!), or you’re a casting office favorite—but they haven’t seen you play this type of role. The turnaround time for your self-taped audition is quick, with just days to read the script, make your strong specific choices, tape, edit, and send it in. How do you make sure we see and hear you while showing your personality and sharing your best performance and–receive a call-back or booking? When my clients cannot get to my studio to tape and coach their auditions, they self-tape. Click here for your 8 Tips for Self-Taping Your Audition.
