The Acting Workshop

CASTING DIRECTOR BRINGS ACTING OPPORTUNITY TO LEEDS WITH FREE WORKSHOPS

Act4.tv are offering the opportunity for Yorkshire actors to be seen by Casting Director Michael Jackson, with a special offer of FREE taster workshops at their Leeds studio. In January there will be 3 days of casting sessions where actors can book a place to audition in front of one of the UK’s top Casting Directors. Casting Directors are always looking for new faces and this offer provides a rare completely FREE opportunity for actors to enhance their career and gain valuable insight from an experienced industry professional. Actors wanting to take advantage of these special casting workshops should book their place as soon as possible as numbers will be limited.

The founder of Act4.tv is Casting Director Michael Jackson, from the northern powerhouse Beverley Keogh Casting – one of the UK’s most successful and highly respected Casting Houses (Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley, The Syndicate, Accused, and Shameless).

To celebrate the Leeds opening of their latest studio, Act4.tv is keen to source local talent and to provide Yorkshire based actors with the opportunities so often reserved for those based in London.

“I’ve been a Casting Director for a 20+ years and I am still amazed that Drama Schools and some Agents send actors out completely unprepared and uneducated about the business of audition. Auditions are a separate beast and they’re getting harder to come by, so every effort has to be made to ensure that the actor makes the best of any given opportunity.” Michael Jackson

“We originally set up the school specifically to teach students how best to succeed in the skill of auditioning. This skill is essential in obtaining roles of any size for Drama and Commercial projects. The role will always go to the prepared actor, rather than one who tends to fly by the seat of their pants, and our courses are designed to give students insight into how to go through the audition process, develop their skill in extracting information from the text and be the very best they can be when the opportunity does knock.” Michael Jackson.

Workshop dates: Thursdays 15th, 22nd, 29th January 2015
Times: 11am – 4pm
Venue: Act4.tv studio, Unit 3, Bowling Green Terrace (off Jack
Lane), Leeds, LS11 9SP
