This 7-day intensive workshop will focus on improving your American English and gives you a unique opportunity to work with France’s and UK's leading casting directors Debbie Mc-Williams & Nathalie Cheron.
Professional actors looking to brush up on their skills & learn invaluable techniques to be fully prepared for auditions. 16 dedicated actors will be provided with the tools to improve voice & accent and acting abilities through voice and audition training.
Learn the vocal gymnastics needed to obtain and keep an authentic American accent. By the end of this intensive course, you will experience the productive outcome of an in-depth analysis of an audition text. After 4 DAYS OF VOICE COACHING you will find your strengths and improve your weak spots through these key points:
Learn to map out your audition preparation, decipher the dialogue, investigate the words and expressions you are struggling with, and get valuable tools for working on your own.
Explore the many places from where your voice can be heard. Where to place the voice in your body for this specific character?
Learn to reduce your accent, no matter where you come from, and sound more fluent in American English. You will work on pronunciation - vowels, consonants, the “th” and other sounds, rhythm and linking, and intonation.
You will question: why does the character say this, and therefore how? You will explore the character’s culture, objectives and the subtext of the scene, and Peggy will help you to better understand how to express it.
SOUND & STYLE
Find the sound & style of your character. By merging the sound & style with your emotional work, you will be able to give a natural performance.
Paris Film Academy invites you to get feedback from professionals with many years of experiences in the industry, working with top-level talent on award-winning films and TV series.
CASTING & FEEDBACK
The last 2 DAYS will consist of castings and feedback. By using the tools learned from Peggy you will do a casting for either Debbie McWilliams or Nathalie Cheron and keep on learning! The two days will include:
You will get a one-on-one coaching with one of these very experienced ladies, followed by a critique. You will do several takes in your session with the casting director and learn right there on the spot.
OBSERVING & LEARNING
You will observe your teammates’ one-on-one coaching and experience how different casting situations can be and develop a greater understanding of the process.
The last day of Casting Training will end with a Cocktail Party to celebrate all the hard and great work of the week.
