Self-Tape Review: Richard Sacher

It’s time for another Self Tape evaluation! If you’ve been listening or watching the podios for any amount of time, you know that giving honest feedback about your video submissions is really making an impact.

Flipping the Script

One technique that I love to use in class is asking the actor in a scene to play the other part. What usually happens is that the actor has no time to think about their choices and jumps in to accomplish the task. The result? The Scene comes alive, is truthful, real, and conversational. On this episode of Casting, Actors Cast. Let's flip the script and find out more about playing the other part whether It’s...

Does Your Training Schools' Reputation Matter?

In response to a listener’s question, Jeffrey takes on the pros and cons of a training schools' reputation as a measure of the actor’s ability and talent.

Air Date: 11/18/2021 Learning Your Words   As a young actor, I never really had a problem remembering my words. My brain  naturally made connections with the script that felt effortless and usually just made sense. It  wasn’t until later that I realized I needed to put more effort into the process.
