Workshop (Calgary): The Casting Package – Casting Director Mike Migliara

Casting Director Mike Migliara is coming to Calgary for his successful & unique audition workshop called “The Casting Package” on July 5th, 2012. Pasted below is a short promo video you can watch to to see more about it:

Workshop Summary: It’s unlike any workshop designed whereby the students will actively take the seat of the casting director, and cast themselves in a mock film. This is crucial so that they get to see first hand their unique assets, and start finding answers to the right questions!

The students will be split in groups. Students in one group will be the casting directors, while the others will audition for them. Then these groups will switch positions; allowing every student to cast and every student to audition. Finally, Mike Migliara will choose 2 winners of “Best Auditioner” and the winners will receive a gift certificate!! The workshop will also have a Q & A session with Special Guest Speakers Jim Donovan, (an Award Winning and Genie Nominated Director) and Gemini Award Winning Actor Tim Rozon.

Furthermore, as the students audition in front of Mike Migliara and each other, the students will be taught aspects of how to audition properly, scene analysis, taking direction, the do’s & don’ts for auditioning, rules for the waiting room and so much more- hence:
