  • Stop thinking like an actor and get into the head of a Casting Director and make a lasting impression. What is the Casting Director judging you on? What makes you stand out? We’ll teach you how to cut through the noise and stand out in decision maker’s minds.

  • What do you do if the Casting Director knows you but doesn’t get you in for a role you are perfect for? Learn how to encourage these decision makers to give you another opportunity. We’ll show you how to use self tapes to build your character repertoire.

     

  • Are movie stars the best actors? If it is not their ability that gets them noticed and keeps them in work then what does? Do they have a magic formula? Discover the best character qualities which help actors make a connection.

Our Testimonials:

"I recently had a one on one with Greg and I was surprised at how perceptive he was. He doesn't miss much. He was generous with his time and knowledge and upfront with honest advice about my headshots, resume and showreel. I also thought his advice about my potential niche in this industry was spot on and aligned with my own thinking. I reckoned I would have had to travel to Mt Olympus for an audience with the gods to get this sort of feedback. Got it instead, direct with Greg, via online video. Terrific value."
- Don Smith
"Few days ago I did a 1:1 session with Greg to find out how to develop further as an actor. Not only as an artist, but also from the marketing point of view. I am exited about the easy-to-do tipps and advices Greg gave me and which I started to follow already. So I do recommend this 1:1 sessions deep from my heart to every actor. A real highly efficient "AHA experience""
- Herbert Forthuber
"I would definitely recommend Greg App's 6-Week Self Taping Workshop to any actor who feels a little stuck or limited by auditions/self tapes. Greg really helped me take ownership of my tapes, freeing me up and making me feel more confident about bringing my whole self to my work. He gives personalised, specific and accurate feedback to you each week, along with video lessons and webinars, all of which I found super helpful! 5/5 😀👍"
