Equity Foundation & The Stunt Guild of New Zealand present: A one day self-test workshop for stunt performers with the legendary David Van Horn! Prepare for an action role that has some lines and learn how to manage props in a self tape setting. You will gain camera-ready skills crucial for auditioning remotely and learn how to give a sense of your physical prowess effectively on screen. Additionally the workshop will cover technical aspects such as equipment setup, lighting, and sound quality to ensure professional-grade self-tapes. Places are limited and priority will be given to stunt performers who are Equity New Zealand members (but all are welcome). If you are not yet an Equity NZ member, just put "000" in the application form when it asks for your number.
