Greg Apps is the founder and Director of The Audition Technique. His experience spans over 50 years working initially in front of the camera then moving to behind the camera in the early 80’s when he became the Director of Casting for the ABC. After about 3 years working for the government network, he soon realised that his entrepreneurial spirit was that much greater than the Aunty could provide for. he started Liz Mullinar Casting in Melbourne (Victoria) being the first casting consultancy in the state and then opened his doors as Prototype Casting a couple of years later.

It was here that Robyn his partner, whilst continuing her acting career, came on board as a business partner.

Together they moved to Fox Studios Sydney where Greg has cast some of the most successful films and television series Australia has seen.

Is your goal to be a better actor?

Or a more successful actor?

Acting training has not changed for …. well, for generations. Traditional drama coaching is based in theatre. And yes, that produces many fine actors.
But for screen there are other elements that are required. Which is why I created The Audition Technique.

In over 38 years of casting, I have seen some truly memorable performances in my audition room. Yes, five mesmerising auditions.

One was Eric Bana in his audition for Chopper “..a star making performance” NY Times.

One was Hugo Weaving for “The Interview” “Weaving has never done such complex, subtle, powerful work” Urbancinefile.com.au

And the other three unforgettable actor auditions ….. did not get the part.

I have seen so many great actors, deliver fabulous work. And their performance was not enhanced by editing, music or other film processes.

They were an audition. One shot. The actor on screen on their own for the entire length of the scene. That is the true test of actor’s ability.

Ability is not the key to creating and delivering a memorable character.

Trust your inner instinct to deliver a memorable audition.

But a majority of actors (and alas drama teachers), do not appreciate that to succeed on screen you do not need technique. You need individuality.

Which is what The Audition Technique is all about. On screen, rules must be broken. On stage, they must be obeyed.

The thinking and mind set required to be an in demand screen actor is not known by many. We would like to share it with you.
