What does an Actor Head Shot say to a Casting Director?

Listen in to our most recent webinar and find out what a Casting Director is looking for in your head shot.

Who are we? And how can we help you?

Greg Apps, one of Australias most highly sort after and recognised Casting Directors, has devised specific techniques to help you as an actor get the role. He won’t make you a better actor. That’s up to you and your drama teacher. But he will help you get more auditions and turn those dreams into reality.

Why Are We Different?

At The Audition Technique we understand and appreciate the daily struggle that actors have.

Over 20 years of acting and over 35 years of Casting Director experience, we have learned the difficulties of connecting with decision makers and how to be noticed in your auditions.

How do you find the right agent that will understand and represent you as you feel you deserve? How do you get Casting Directors to take notice and ask you to test for that role you KNOW you are right for? How do you ‘pop’ in the audition?

After auditioning over 145,000 actors in his studio and having worked with people such as Tom Cruise, James Cameron, discovered actors as Russell Crowe, Eric Bana, Guy Pearce,  amongst many others, Greg has learned a few skills along the way.

Our members have their say…

“What a valuable and unique insight into the casting process this course has been. I’m sure everyone would agree, seeing the work of fellow actors as they tackle the same issues and/or scenes as yourself is a fascinating and edifying experience.”

– Kristin Holland, Melbourne

“I have learnt SO much over the last six weeks! Thank you Greg for the incredibly informative feedback. I cannot wait to put all this newfound character knowledge into my auditions.”

– Sian Ewers, Sydney

“Ultimately, casting directors spend more time with me in the room and best of all I continue to find unexplored territory through individuality by, as Greg always says: ‘allowing the character to deliver the dialogue.’”

– Stephen Horst, NYC

“I’ve really appreciated receiving the weekly feedback from you Greg. You have a way of giving enlightening insight that is both bold and refreshing. This is one of the most innovative courses I know of so far!”
