6 Week Audition Workshop Course:

THE COURSE:
Throughout the 6 week course, our aim is to work on a variety of the different audition experiences that actors encounter during the casting process. I want to give actors confidence and help with their skill set to succeed during their auditions.

WEEK ONE
Small roles – During the first week, actors will be given 2 scenes in which they will read for the small roles. The objective will be to get actors used to delivering their lines in a way that fits the purpose of the scene and not over emphasise or draw much attention during the scene.

WEEK TWO
Supporting lead / lead roles - This week we will focus on lead or supporting lead roles. Actors will be given a scene with more dialogue and an arc. This will be an opportunity for actors to show me what they’re capable of and receive feedback to iron out any bad audition habits.

WEEK THREE
Recall – Following on from week two, actors will be given a recall scene for the same role that we worked on during week two. The additional scene will be provided, and more context given around the scenes and project. This will give actors more material to work with and we will engage in discussion regarding character and script as well as putting the new scene on tape.

WEEK FOUR
Chemistry reads – This week will be chemistry reads. Actors will work in pairs and read a scene together. This week will show actors how chemistry reads work and give them an opportunity to work collaboratively with another actor during the workshop.

WEEK FIVE
Zoom auditions – This week we will look at auditions via Zoom. Since the pandemic this has become the norm and this week will allow actors the opportunity to work on an online platform, receive direction and discuss with myself how to come across as well as possible whilst not physically being in the room with the casting team or the director.

WEEK SIX
Feedback & CV - I will provide individual feedback to each actor who has participated in the course. This will be an opportunity to ask me any questions they may have and allow us to talk through their CV.

Yvonne has been working in casting since 2019. She started her casting journey at Julie Harkin Casting as a Casting Assistant and was promoted to Associate in 2021. Her credits whilst at Julie Harkin's office include THE DOLL FACTORY (Paramount+UK), THE BAGMAN (Lionsgate), HEART OF STONE (Netflix), THE TOXIC AVENGER (Legendary Entertainment), THE SERPENT QUEEN (Starz!) and I MAY DESTROY YOU (HBO/BBC). Yvonne loves meeting and working with actors. Yvonne strives to encourage diversity and inclusion in all aspects and to make sure all actors are given an equal opportunity no matter what their background. Yvonne's work as a writer, actor and director has given her a great eye for noticing talent and this is what has led her into Casting. Yvonne Lawlor (She/her). Casting Associate. CDG.
