Breaking Away From the Pack
We got this amazing opportunity,Breaking Away From the Pack, sent to us so that we can share it with everyone! Brian Levy brings to you an active discussion of the industry, who’s who, love-fear and loathing of the audition process, photo & resume, wardrobe, make up, hair, preparation, scripts, what directors/producers say-expect and want to see in audition…and much more. Before the lunch break participants will be given the first of two on-camera opportunities. The first with a short set of sides given at the audition. After the lunch break participants will present the sides they have been sent prior to the workshop. They will get re-direct and opportunity for multiple takes. Brian uses both long form and commercial sides, all from projects he has casted. ALL sides are gender and age appropriate. Questions, comments and observations from participants are welcomed and encouraged throughout this workshop. This workshop is directed towards adult talent. Ages 14 and up are able to register for this workshop.

Breaking Away From the Pack Audition Technique Workshop Brian Levy CDC,CSA
Casting director Brian Levy is pleased to present the first of the summer series of his popular, informative and highly acclaimed audition technique workshop Breaking Away From the Pack. This is NOT an acting workshop; this workshop teaches actors how to become smarter, better informed actors acquiring the skill set to prepare for and compete effectively in audition. Many actors fail in audition, all too often for reasons that have little to do with ability and everything to do with not understanding the audition process and how to prepare effectively. The basics are the same whether it is for a commercial or long form audition.
You spend time, effort and resources getting to your auditions. That effort should be rewarded with a more satisfying audition experience. This practical, well-paced and informative workshop is beneficial to any actor struggling with the audition process.
Brian is a working casting director based in Toronto and is a graduate of the acclaimed Vancouver Playhouse Acting School. He is on the faculty of Seneca College’s Acting for Film and Television program and is on the executive committee of the Casting Directors Society of Canada was well as being a member of the Casting Society of America. www.brianlevycasting.ca
