All actors in the course will receive a scene prior to the course and be expected to be lines down. Actors will run these scenes in front of a camera with Stevie guiding them as a Casting director. Actors will do a few takes of the scene exploring the guidance and advice Stevie hands out. Actors will receive a copy of their scene to view after the workshop.
Time will also be spent with a Q and A for actors to ask all those questions they’ve been dying to ask a casting director. Stevie is a WEALTH of knowledge whose perspective working for one of Australia’s top casting agencies will be extremely valuable.
Please note this course is NOT a guarantee that you will audition or be considered by McGregor casting for any future work opportunities.
This course will be a valuable experience to work with and get inside the head of one of Australia’s top casting directors. We at SAC hope all Sydney actors take advantage of this valuable opportunity to work one on one with Stevie.
