episodic vs. pilot season...mysteries unraveled!

SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 2018 
5:00PM-7:30PM

ALL AGES

For this event, Ty will share his experience in television, delving into the world of episodic and pilot casting. This will be a conversation about:

  • the business side of acting 
  • preparing and researching for roles
  • audition techniques
  • finding confidence and making choices
  • work ethics
  • keeping busy
  • creating original content 
  • maintaining relationships
  • what to expect and how to prepare for episodic and pilot season 
  • pitfalls to avoid 
  • what to do after booking a job
  • and of course, questions are welcomed and encouraged!

Scene work will consist of ONE PREPARED scene with a reader to help better train for real world conditions.  All work will be done in a supportive, classroom setting with other actors as the audience so that everyone can participate and learn from any adjustments or feedback.  You will receive customized notes and feedback, and then run selected sections again to incorporate the educational instruction.

*You may purchase video recording of entire personal session for $20.  Copy will be emailed within 24 hours of workshop. This is an excellent tool for both student and parent.  Students are able to play back the feedback and watch the redirects for fuller understanding.  Parents become a "fly on the wall" and are able to see their child in action.*
