Free Development Event
Maximum Participants: 5 (for clinic sessions), Unticketed Q&A
This session is an opportunity for emerging artists to find out more about the crucial and creative world of casting! Casting Directors play a vital role in connecting performers and projects of all shapes and sizes. We want to give developing actors an insight into the nitty gritty of the casting process, and advice on how to engage with it more effectively.
Nicola Reynolds is a Cardiff-based, welsh Casting Director. She is also a Writer, Director and Performer for stage and screen.
The first hour of the session will be a Q+A with Nicola. In which she will be giving participants an insight into her role as a Casting Director. She will also be providing general advice on how to work alongside Casting Directors, drawing upon her own experience as a Writer, Director and Performer. The Q+A will be unticketed and open to all!
After this, Nicola will be hosting half hour one-on-one slots, which can be booked in advance (for free, of course!), and can be used in whatever way the participant desires. You could ask for:
- Bespoke advice on how to make yourself more “cast-able”
- Audition advice/tips
- Feedback on a monologue/audition piece
- More information on Cardiff’s theatre industry
This is your opportunity to personally engage with a seasoned and experienced industry professional. Use it how you will! We highly recommend that those who book one-on-one slots try to be present at the Q+A, so that they can make the most of their personal time with Nicola!
