Cold Read Workshop with Casting Director Toni Cobb-Brock in Houston
TITAS Presents and the AT&T Performing Arts Center will be hosting two specialized seminars designed to help guide actors and dancers through every phase of their working career, from the beginning, to the peaks, into golden performing years and retirement. One evening is designed specifically for dancers, the other for film/TV and stage actors, technicians and creatives, though all are welcome to attend both. These are free to members. Entertainment industry professionals, union and non-union performing artists of all kinds are welcome.
SAG-AFTRA members now have the opportunity to capture some screen time of their own at the SAG Awards Viewing Parties hosted by the Houston-Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth Locals. This will be part of the Texas Member Reel that is shared with producers and casting directors throughout the year. The Member Reel slide show includes member headshots with credits and professional contact information.
In this new form of SAG-AFTRA Foundation Casting Access Online, actors will get a unique opportunity to perform and video chat with a specified casting director. Registered actors will prepare their own scene for the class then participate in a Q&A and reading with the casting director. Actors will perform one by one via video chat then receive feedback on their performances. Scene readers will be selected from the class.
