Aside from working at Thomas/O’Neill Casting, Ty also works at other L.A. based casting offices that cast pilots and series regulars for The Disney Channel and other kid friendly networks!

A short list of Ty’s casting credits include: Nickelodeon’s SCHOOL OF ROCK and the Disney Channel’s hit shows, LIV AND MADDIE, CRASH & BERNSTEIN, KC UNDERCOVER, SUPER AWESOME KATY, as well as the Nick Creative Lab (a series of shorts to develop new talent for a major children’s network).

Ty will be teaching 3 sessions, sign up for 1 or more!

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP...At Young Actor's House, Ty is looking forward to teaching actors how to rock auditions in person and make sure their self tapes stand out from the crowd!
  • Each child will come to class with a scene memorized in advance. Ty will post sides on a link a few days prior to the class, and Lauren will decide which students do which scenes.
  • Ty is going to show the actors how to make sure they stand out while submitting a self tape and/or auditioning in person. Ty watches hundreds of tapes, and has cast many series regulars from the initial audition being a self tape.
  • He is going to show everyone a sneak peak of what casting looks likes from the casting director’s point of view. This will help actors of all ages audition differently from this point forward. Parents will be asked to attend the first half hour of each class, so they too can understand the process and see what works best.
  • Ty will work with each actor on making sure they understand how to connect with the reader in the scene. If they are connected, then this will translate, and the viewer will pay attention.
  • Each class will be two hours. The first half hour the parents will attend, and then the remaining time will be an intensive on camera class with Ty learning how to make your audition in person and/or self-tape from home much better!
*This workshop is a learning experience. It is not an audition or employment opportunity. When the workshop is over, the casting director teaching this workshop will not be taking home nor be given access to your headshot, resume or any other of your promotional materials.

 

OUR FAVORITE GROUNDLING'S INSTRUCTOR

GUY STEVENSON 

IS COMING BACK TO YAH!  

SATURDAY, MAY 20, 2017 


CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE GROUNDLINGS!

Improvisation is one of the fundamental skills actors need for thinking on their feet and making their works seem real and not rehearsed, and is crucial for auditioning when things are changed at the last minute. Students are introduced to the fundamentals of improvisation through the use of games and exercises in a fast-paced, challenging and fun environment. They will also be encouraged to let their own "Comedic Voice" come through the characters that they will be playing.
