The Life of a Day Player
Local market, local casting, more than likely a lot of Day Player opportunities. Preparing for those pesky one and two liners, to co-star roles can be more tricky than you think. What’s expected of you professionally when addressing these parts and how they contribute to the story? What should you expect when you get to set? Learn to be a go-to person in the local market for casting and agents as you build a career from the ground up by using the art of being specific and honest in everyday mundane situations.

Vince Pisani has over 20 years experience as a professional film, television, and stage actor, gaining a reputation as a talented character actor and coach affectionately known as “The Head of the Teddy Bear Mafia.” He has landed recurring roles on such shows as Halt and Catch Fire, The Gifted, Brockmire, SIX, Bigger and Saints and Sinners, as well as appeared on The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Good Behavior, Watchmen, The Act and numerous others. On the big screen he was recently seen in Jumanji 2: The Next Level, TAG, and Office Christmas Party, and will soon appear as a supporting role in The Conjuring 3.

Vince taught ongoing courses in Acting for Film at Creative Studios of Atlanta (5 years), Get Scene Studios (2 and a half years), assisted at Kennesaw State University in the film acting class, and worked as the in-house audition session runner for one of Atlanta’s leading Talent Agencies, Houghton Talent. He has viewed and conducted thousands of auditions and training sessions and currently trains students privately in one on one and small group sessions. He has assisted and session run castings for top commercial and film casting directors in the southeast, and has been the on set acting coach for FOX’s STAR. He’s trained actors of all levels from beginners to series regulars and leads in motion pictures.

As a teacher, he provides a unique knowledge and perspective of actor, agency-rep, and session runner. His students learn a very practical approach to the craft and business of acting.
