The Equity Foundation is pleased to present an opportunity to join one of Australia’s leading casting directors - Allison Meadows, Senior Casting Director, Mullinars (Sydney) - for a full day working on your casting skills. Twenty Equity financial members will work intensively with Allison. Each attendee will have a quick read through, then record a take and then review the footage and discuss the performance. All participants will be able to observe this process. The delegates will be asked to bring their own audition piece to work on with the casting director. Everyone is asked to bring a scene from television or film rather than theatre. If you don’t have a script handy there are many websites that have tv/film scripts that you can access…A few of them include: http://www.dailyscript.com/tv.html and http://www.dailyscript.com/movie.html
