Straight from the US, Ted's famous Power Point presentation is extremely beneficial for anyone to attend who is serious about a career in the modern acting landscape. The presentation is an interactive event (hosted by Ted and his trusty laptop and projector) which deconstructs the audition scenario, provides expert advice on how to prepare yourself to do your best work in the audition room and gives attendees an unparalleled insight in to the 'business' that surrounds the casting process. Attendees will also benefit from Ted's script analysis techniques which are demonstrated live, en masse with the whole group. The event culminates with Ted working hands-on, with scripts, with a selected number of volunteers. This live section illustrates many of the principles outlined in the presentation and is a fast-paced examination of audition technique.
Our very grateful thanks to the Howard Fine Studio Australia for being able to host this workshop.
