Problems Faced By Actors

Becoming a celebrated actor is an arduous journey. The attraction has drawn in many, yet one of the initial barriers has stopped multiple dead in their tracks…. Auditions.

Desire and passion are great and powerful things, but they mean nothing if an aspiring actor can’t break through the barrier of auditions. Unfortunately, a lot of people fall into the trap of routine when it comes to auditions, becoming stagnant in delivery and technique. The Audition Technique, spearheaded by former actor and long-time casting director Greg Apps are here to guide you past this hurdle and teach you how to self tape for success.

Your main problem as an actor is not being seen by decision makers. The people who can make a difference to your career.

One of the biggest problems facing actors is their inability to connect with casting directors, the decision makers. They go through multiple clones of your character in a day, so making your interpretation stand out is a must. Online acting classes from Greg Apps and The Audition Technique can make that happen.

How do we fix these problems?
