This is a workshop geared towards the experienced actor who would like some assistance on what’s required by casting agents when submitting a self test. Nicholas Coghlan, actor and teacher will work through all the technical requirements and processes involved in putting down one's own test.
Successful applicants can bring their own laptop/camera/phone so they can be guided through all the steps from recording to sending their test off. If you don’t have any devices to record then you can observe the process.
