Week 1 : This is an introductory session. Meet Bill, Bill meets you. Get to know each other, gain an invaluable relationship and connection. Then after that stuff that we should all be doing is over with, mine his mind. The guy has a lifetime of experience in the industry inside his skull, use it. Ask the burning questions in your heart and things you’ve always wanted to know, be it on set – in the casting room – expected from directors – how actors need to act – WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND!
Moving on to working on developing character and selling yourself through the audition. Also working as a part of a team for onset purposes. After getting a good idea of the class and who Bill has, he would cast you and send a script (Short, no longer than 1min each) for a self tape.
Week 2, 3 & 4: Deconstructing self tape, discussing character development – what worked and what didn’t work – Then Bill will send you another script for next week (Changing genre each time). This would continue for the 4 weeks, with options to explore table reading, directors notes, scene dissection.
