For years there is an actor
pilgrimage in January.
Actors from all over the US and in fact, all over the world, move to LA in the hope of snaring a regular role in a pilot.
But, do you need to be in LA? To get these opportunities?
Casting Directors now audition ALL OVER THE WORLD, so opportunities are not restricted to actors in town.
Here’s a free Mini Video Series
by Casting Director Greg Apps!
Join us to find out how to manage your Pilot Season
opportunities from thousands of miles away!
What you will get from this free video series…
What you’ll be watching is a recording of a webinar I did early January, which is divided into
4 episodes which talks about The Audition Pipeline.
Each episode is delivered to your inbox daily.
Episode 1: The Network
Being a GOOD actor is every actor’s goal.
But does that get you Pilot Season Opportunities?
Put simply, being good is not good enough.
You have to be right.
Episode 2: The Series Creator
I think the most powerful person in the casting process is The Series Creator.
They’re the person with the concept.
They’re the person that has the vision.
They’re the person that is looking to develop something that is like no other.
When they created the series, they actually cast the network.
Episode 3: The Casting Director
In this episode, we will be talking about the Casting Director.
It’s imperative that you have an objective view about you, your opportunity, and where you fit.
Because that’s what I’m paid to do as a casting director. I’m paid to be objective about the actors that are submitted.
With more than 38 years of auditioning actors in the audition room, I’ll tell you my role, as a Casting Director, in The Audition Pipeline.
Episode 4: You and the Delivery of your individuality
One of these pictures delivers his brand. And the other makes the Casting Director stop. And think. Think about Neil Patrick Harris.
How do you deliver your individuality?
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.
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”
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!
Greg Apps offers generous insights into alternative ways to approach an audition, this is a rare opportunity for performers to hear what captures the attention of a Director, Casting Director, Producer and reconsider their own technique. Insightful, helpful and well worth watching on a weekly basis.
The personal, constructive feedback Greg gives is straight to the point and full of simple ways to not only improve your work, but how to use the work created in the course to progress your career.
Greg breaks down barriers between actors and casting directors, generating more confidence in the audition room with greater results
For actors living in remote areas who don’t have access to training and auditions, it is a great opportunity for them to learn auditioning and marketing techniques
I find Greg’s lessons and critiques in the workshops to be clear and applicable. It’s great to have someone open up the mysterious and misunderstood world of casting with such generosity
This way of working makes auditioning a creative effort. Also, Greg´s cheerful manners and charm make the six weeks a complete joy.
The self taping course is without doubt one of the best courses I have done to date. I finished the six weeks not only with a new skill set, but with a sense of purpose and focus with respect to my acting. Highly recommended.
