Things worth knowing
Whad does a casting look like?
During a casting a director will conduct a short interview with you; they will ask you about your interests and information from the questionnaire filled in before entry to the studio. Next, a producer will take a photo of your face and silhouette. Then you will be asked to improvise a few scenes in front of the camera which will enable us to get to know your character and stage personality. The director will judge your acting skills and will give you some useful tips for the future.
