About this Event

What helps the actor prepare well enough, so that they can enter a room or create a self tape that has choices and technical competence, and importantly is different and fresh each time?
How does an actor respond to a casting director when they give adjustments in the callback?
What are you required to do to bring to the set what was done in the audition and callback? AND, remain flexible and creative on set (and emotionally, intellectually open and available)!
These topics and more will be covered by Guest Teacher, Jeffrey Grover. As a seasoned actor, Jeff is well versed in the preparation process, the necessary flexibility of the callback, and the unique curveballs you must adjust to on set.
