Synopsis

This is chance for up to six actors to work with Mullinars Casting Director Allison Meadows and Casting Associate Kizzie Morgan in a television and film style screentest workshop conducted via zoom. The six successful will receive a two-hander scene chosen specifically for them and given approximately three days to prepare. The zoom session will be conducted exactly the same way Mullinars have been working throughout the lockdown where Allison and Kizzie manage the zoom and record the screentest. Kizzie will be the reader and Allison will give notes after an initial run of the scene and then allow the actor time to perform a second take. If time permits, Allison will provide feedback after the second take. The goal of this workshop is to demystify zoom screentests and help members feel confident if invited to audition via zoom, whether it’s because of lockdown or because they are being considered for an interstate project. This is not designed as an acting lesson. Please note: There will be other actors observing (auditing) this class.  Unsuccessful applicants will be sent a Zoom link to observe this class. Those who apply to participate do not need to apply to audit as you will be sent the Zoom link automatically. 12pm is Australian Eastern Daylight Time.
