Lesson Modules:

How has the digital world changed a Casting Directors day and how can actors insert themselves into his or her world? Learn how a self tape communicates and gives the actor creative control.
Stop thinking like an actor and get into the head of a Casting Director and make a lasting impression. What is the Casting Director judging you on? What makes you stand out? We’ll teach you how to cut through the noise and stand out in decision maker’s minds.
What do you do if the Casting Director knows you but doesn’t get you in for a role you are perfect for? Learn how to encourage these decision makers to give you another opportunity. We’ll show you how to use self tapes to build your character repertoire.
Are movie stars the best actors? If it is not their ability that gets them noticed and keeps them in work then what does? Do they have a magic formula? Discover the best character qualities which help actors make a connection.
Ask Greg Apps, an experienced actor and casting director your burning audition and industry-related questions.
In this lesson we explore the restrictions of the audition space and how you can overcome them. What is compulsory focus and how can you avoid it? Learn how to not deliver the plot and make your audition memorable.
This lesson will show you how to simplify your entire audition without relying on the script. What is your version of the audition character? Greg Apps provides critical insight into capturing this character.
We help you capture those ‘wow’ moments in a bottle and deliver it in an audition. Learn about magic moments and how to avoid conformity in your auditions.
We help mould your motivations within the audition scene as well as exploring natural distractions that help you stand out from the crowd. Learn why the punctuation is less important than other elements within the script.
Greg Apps knows what casting directors are looking for and can teach you how to best present yourself. This lesson we teach you how to build your career playing one character and how to deliver your niche. Learn how to recognise your character traits and to embrace them.
What is the difference between a studio self test and an unscripted selfie? Here we learn about what your character needs to portray and how you get that in front of the Casting Director. We also discuss your agent and what they are selling. How has the digital age affected their day?
It’s time to build your brand. Why does this casting director need to choose you and how do you deliver what they are looking for? We help discover and guide your presentation for the better.
How does status relate to you as an actor? Learn how to substitute your real life relationships and how you relate that to your character. We show you how to deliver a compelling relationship between you and your reader.
Greg advises you to take what you’ve learned so far and helps you make the best audition choices possible.
You have now developed your communications tools for specific times and genres. How do you leverage your new found ability through your agent? If you don’t have an agent, no problem. We can help you with that too. You’re ready to sell yourself.
Casting directors are trained to notice the subtleties. We help you fine tune what you’ve learnt to create a persona decision makers want to see again and again.
This lesson ties all your skills you have learned over the 6 weeks. You now have the skills to explore and build your career in order to move forward. We summarise all our self-taping audition tips, to ensure you’re ready to deliver your best, when the time comes.
