SAG-AFTRA Conservatory and KMRC Present "Virtual Auditions: The New Casting Frontier presented by Sharon Garrison"
Start: 04/17/2012 - 1:00am
End: 04/17/2012 - 4:00am

A trend has emerged in the regional casting process, including Chicago and virtually every market: virtual auditions. More efficiently than ever before, casting directors can now seek out the best possible talent for their casting projects in markets far beyond the perimeters that restrained them in the past.
 
Many casting directors are already proclaiming that videotaped auditions (at least for the first round of a casting project) are the new normal for casting. This development presents unlimited opportunities for actors who live and work outside of the Los Angeles and New York areas to be seen, respected and BOOKED on jobs previously out of their reach.
 
Dallas-based actor Sharon Garrison has put herself on tape and has videotaped auditions for more than 100 actors. Casting directors around the country often request her, and her tapings have yielded her a recurring role on the popular Lifetime show, Drop Dead Diva.
 
Sharon has put together an informational seminar sharing what she’s learned about this process. Her goal is to empower actors to feel confident and have fun as they create their own virtual auditions. She’ll introduce the nuts and bolts of successful video auditions, from the basic tools of taping through scene preparation, and include hints about lighting, sound, makeup, hair, movement, wardrobe and more, culminating in submission via the Internet.
 
When: 6–9 p.m., Monday, April 16

Where: KMRC, One East Erie, Suite 660, Chicago IL 60611
