Animation Audition Technique with Animation Casting Director Sara Sherman – Recorded Workshop



Casting Directors receive anywhere from 200-500 auditions for one role. The performance you give when auditioning for a role is different from the performance you give once you book the role. Your main goal in an audition is to show the casting director the different places you can take this character. Sara will help you find that variation and ways to help your auditions stand out from the pack and get noticed.

Here’s what this 3-hr Workshop focuses on:

  • Finding Your Funny – Sara will help you find funny and new ways to deliver lines.
  • Changing Things Up – You will learn to avoid giving a one-note performance
  • Adding Physicality – Learn to visualize what is happening in the scene and how that impacts your voice.

Join us for this incredible workshop and take your Animation Auditions to the next level!
