Screen tests: practice makes perfect

You may feel unsure when you receive a scene for one of your next auditions. Without knowing what the casting director wants, you struggle to take one direction more than another. That’s not unreasonable, after all: isn’t the actor supposed to be led by a director? But you have to make a clear choice, from which the casting director will decide (or not) to work with you on one or more projects.
This web conference will give you the keys to understanding how to prepare your screen tests and arrive fully composed, relaxed and confident.
