Casting Directors Workshops

The next event in our series of Casting Director Workshops will be with Janis Jaffa CDG at The Actors Centre (Rehearsal Room) from 6pm to 9pm on Tuesday 25 April.

Casting for over twenty years, Janis has worked on a wide range of projects including feature films, TV drama, fringe theatre and short films. From comedy (Meet the Magoons for Wark Clements) to series drama (four years on The Bill for Talkback Thames), short films (The Road Home - short listed for an Oscar nomination, The Backseat – currently a festival darling) to fringe theatre (The Finborough, Kings Head) and feature films (most recently Before the First Snow – currently in development).

Janis has just completed casting on the short film Toothfairy, which is just about to start the festival rounds, and a major campaign for X Box. She is shortly embarking on a research and development theatre project, funded by the Arts Council.

The cost for this event will be £10 which covers the cost of the room. The CD fees will be covered by AAUK. Casting Wokshops at the Actors Guild are £32 and you need to be a member.

Janis would like you to come with a short monologue or scene (no more than 2 minutes) that you are comfortable with and best reflects your castability. Please make sure you bring an extra copy for Janis to refer to during the workshop. If you are doing a scene you will also need to bring a copy for someone to read in for you
