During our February Selftape Dojo session, it was suggested we have a Zoom Audition workshop to practice the challenge of auditions and recalls online. So, our first session of Zoom Audition Technique will be Sunday evening the 25th of April from 6pm to 9pm.
The format: each participant will be emailed the script 3 days before the Zoom session. Everyone will be assigned a time slot for their ‘audition’ between 6pm and 7:20pm on Sunday the 25th of April. The ‘audition’ will consist of a brief chat and then a read – all of which will be recorded. I will be acting like a casting director during each of these. At 7:30pm all participants will join the Zoom meeting to watch all videos and comment. Even though I’m acting as the casting director for the ‘auditions’, the comment section of the event will be an opportunity for everyone to share information and tips.
There is no fee for the event, but enrolment is limited to 10 participants because of time constraints. To register, click on the ‘Event Registration’ tab in the ‘Members Only’ section of the AAUK website or login and click here.
Any questions please ask me at selftape@AmericanActorsUK.com

Hope to see you there,

Pippa Winslow
