FAQs for Inside the Casting Studio - Live events

HOW THE LIVE EVENTS WORK:

We have always loved sharing our knowledge about the business with actors and love talking to other people in the business. These are our people!!! Our guests have a vast wealth of knowledge and sound advice that everyone benefits from. You are lucky to have found us.

 

Our classes always start with a Q& A with a moderator, generally Megan Foley  and/or Chuck Marra. Our guests will tell you first a bit about themselves  and how they got into the business. We find that most of our guests are super friendly and helpful and love to answers questions, so bring it on!!! 

Topics may include but are limited to Headshots, Resumes, Reels. the changing climate of the business, Union or non union or Fi-core. what they have learned in their years. These Q&A sessions will often be recorded ( with the guests permission) to used on our podcast.

Please bring a notebook and pen to take notes and if you are given scenes in advance, please be prepared and bring 2 copies of your scene. We will do many "cold read"  scenes but may do the occassional commercial or monologue (going old school)  too so be ready! Please read the class description of any specific notes.

Our classes are fairly short, so plan to stay the entire time. You never know what you will learn by watching others or hear advice that was meant for you. In extreme emergencies we will let you go early but only if it is arranged prior to class.

PAYMENT POLICY

All sales are final. If you cancel 48 hours prior to the start of the workshop, you will receive a credit for the full amount which you can use towards any other workshop. If you cancel with less than  48 hour notice, you will not receive credit unless your spot  in a SOLD OUT workshop is filled. 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING/PREPARE FOR CLASS?

Bring your headshot and resume and a link to your reel. You will get them all back at the end of the session.

Bring a notebook and pen to take notes.

You may bring water or coffee but not food please.

Cellphones off during class.

If your insructor gives you sides in advance (Uncommon) please bring two copies of the sides and be prepared.

It never hurts to have a monologue prepared  or a spare scene you like, just in case.

IF WE HAVE TO CANCEL

Because we are hiring working professionals to come in and share their time and expertise with you, sometimes things come up in their office which mean we have to  bring in an associate, cancel or reshcedule. In the  unlikely event that that does happen,a refund will not be given HOWEVER you will be given a credit for the amount paid for, which an be used for any  available upcoming event. Credits are issued from our office and NOT from paypal.

WILL THE GUEST TAKE MY HEADHOTS/RESUMES/REELS?

NO THE WILL NOT. Please note: workshops are a learning experience. It is not an audition or an employment opportunity. When the workshop is over, the casting director/casting associate/casting assistant (whichever is applicable) teaching said workshop will not be taking home nor be given access to your headshot, resume, or any other of your promotional materials.

However, when you perform, the guest will view your headshot and resume- they will provide feedback, take notes, and give constructive criticism. After you perform, they will return your materials.
