(Youth + Adults)
About This Course.
Hollywood Superstar, Teresa Palmer joins forces with leading Casting Director,
Angela Heesom to present this rare and limited training experience!
This 2.5-Day Workshop will deliver a unique insight into the machinations of Hollywood, hearing and learning from Teresa about her incredible journey from an Adelaide teen hoping for that one big break, to actually getting it and then being thrust into the core of an international film career and the steps she took along the way.
It all starts with the ‘Audition’, even for Teresa. The Audition is the gateway to getting that role, and being noticed by Casting Directors, Producers and Directors. And this amazing Workshop will teach you how to impress from the start and do your best audition ever.
You’ll also learn from Teresa about the skills required to work in Lead roles on major film sets, often playing against super stars, the likes of Adam Sandler, Nicholas Cage, John Malkovich. She’ll take you through her own testing process and
how she prepares for each role, and how to control your nerves and have confidence in yourself for any part you want to play, big or small.
In tandem with Teresa, you’ll get the low down from Angela on how Casting Directors work, how choices are made about who to audition, what she looks out for in the room or in a self-tape, and how Actors can totally stand-out in any Audition. And she won’t hold back either, telling you some of the regular pitfalls actors sometimes make, although often they are never even aware of. She’ll share with you examples of the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to screentests and what the successful actors actually did to land the role!
These are all vital tools for any Actor to know.
We’ll be working in a safe, intimate & fun environment, demystifying the auditioning process, and giving all students personalised and honest feedback and adjustments when taping their own scenes.
