THIS WORKSHOP IS IN TORONTO!
August 17th, 18th, & 19th
Jenny Lewis is one half of the casting team Lewis and Kay Casting. Jenny and Sara Kay have been working together for 8 years. They won the inagural Gemini for casting the MOW Heyay by Gordon Pinsent. Both Jenny and Sara spent years in the business working as assistants and then associates for other casting diretors before branching out on their own. They work mostly on Canadian Projects but cross over into American material as well. Recent credits include The Transporter, Republic of Doyle, Little Mosque on the Prairie, Skins, Breakout Kings, and Defendor to name a few.
This is your chance to make a personal impression with Casting. This format will get you in the room with all the pressure of a real room audition setting. Our format allows you and your reader to spend a total of 20-30 minutes in the room with just Casting, Matthew, and the Camera Person. You gain an unparalleled first-hand sense of how each casting director works and what he/she wants to see in their room. Insight gained would normally take 6-10 auditions with that Casting Director.
Sides are cast in advance of the workshop, and you will be coached by one of Canada’s top coaches to get your best out in front of the people that need to see it.
Day 1: Friday, August 17th 2:30pm-6:30pm
Work with Matthew Harrison in a seminar format: get to the core of audition technique and build confidence in the audition room.
Day 2: Saturday, August 18th, 9am-6pm
Coach your scene with Matthew – get to the heart of the story, emotional truth of both your character and yourself, and put it into action.
Day 3: Sunday, August 19th, 10am-7pm
Showcase your acting chops in a full one-on-one audition setting for the Casting Director in a true to life audition format. Get personal notes and direction in the room. After auditions are concluded, there is and intimate Q & A for the entire group. Finally, Matthew will provide you with ‘the teacher’s translation’ to reinforce your understanding of what you need to work at for your auditions going forward.
