The New Approach: Casting Director Series
Four Week Intensive With TV/Film Casting Director Nan Dutton
Thursdays @ 7:30p
November 8th, 15th, 29th & December 13th
Acting is about making strong choices – and bringing your whole self to the role. “Show them your (guts)!” is what Nan Dutton says (actually, Nan used a different word, but the philosophy is still the same). Actors need to know exactly what it takes to deliver a performance for network television and film – and with her 30+ years of casting experience, Nan has an innate sense of how to bring that out of the actors she sees. In this 4-week course, Casting Director Nan Dutton will guide you through how to compete in this arena – and how to bring the very best to every audition and performance you do. The four weeks will look something like this:
•You will provide your headshot ahead of time, and Nan will “call you in” for an audition for a specific role, based off of the look in your headshot. Not only will this week be an exercise in auditioning, but also a wake-up call for just what your headshot may represent to the casting directors you’re sending it to.
•The second week will be about the art of the audition. You will prepare material given to you in advance, and bring it in to work on with Nan.
•This week will all be about performing cold – how you handle material when it’s handed to you or switched at the last minute (which Nan says she does do sometimes).
•There will be a two-week hiatus in between the third and the last week, so that you can prepare a scene with a partner from class – and bring it in to perform. Nan will have gotten to know you by now, so it’ll give her a chance to see you perform in material she’s unfamiliar with – and give feedback based on what she’s seen you do in the past 3 weeks.
This will be a demanding course – and Nan expects A LOT from the actors that she works with. It is geared towards actors who are serious about a career in acting, and who are actively working on their career in classes, seminars, and performances of various kinds.
