Cold Reading For Self-Tests and Auditions

Payment plans available

Cold Reading is now an essential skill for Australian Actors to have – MEAA and CGA guidelines for self-tapes have recently changed to allow actors to hold the script during their test. Learn how to use this rule change to your advantage.

In this one-day in-person workshop you will receive my expert techniques to:

  • Give a great audition and self-test within a fast turnaround time.
  • Stay connected to your reader even with a script in hand.
  • Use cold-read techniques to help you work efficiently.
  • My quick and effective script analysis method.
  • Create multiple versions of the scene to give the director options.
  • Harness and present your personality in order to be remembered in the audition room.

As a working Casting Director I know first-hand that we often have very fast turnarounds – sometimes needing to show clients Actors within 24 hours – that means you’ll have even less time than that!

Many Actors worry that reading off a page is going to confine them artistically – but learn these dynamic techniques and you will harness a sense of freedom and play in your audition or self-test.
