AUDITION TECHNIQUE WORKSHOP

WITH MELISSA A. SMITH (CDC)

TIMMINS, ON

 

With a burgeoning film industry in Timmins, ON, more productions are looking at the city as a potential film location. Producers are also looking to hire local actors who understand the expectations of auditioning and working on a professional film set. 

 

In 2015, Melissa A. Smith cast Two Lovers & A Bear in Timmins. Over 17 local performers were cast in speaking roles and various extras had an opportunity to work on the set. After getting their start on Two Lovers & A Bear, many of the performers have gone on to book roles in other Northern Ontario filmed series & feature films.

 

Melissa A. Smith (CDC) is a Toronto-based Casting Director and was named Playback Magazine's Top 5 To Watch for 2016. Melissa's credits include Letterkenny (CraveTV), What Would Sal Do (HBO Canada), Indian Horse (Screen Siren Films/Steve Campenelli), Cardinal Seasons 1-3 (CTV), Away From Everywhere (Quiet Revolution Pictures/Morag Loves Company/Justin Simms), His Master's Voice (Quiet Revolution Pictures) and more. Melissa has been hiring Northern actors for film & television for the past 5 years.

 

This workshop will provide participants with valuable insight into the industry & audition process in Northern Ontario, with specific feedback from Melissa. Actors will gain useful auditioning techniques and learn how to overcome nerves and impress casting directors with confidence, preparation & technique. The business aspect will also be discussed in details, including headshots, resumes, demo reels, agents, crew positions, on set etiquette and more.
