Course Overview
The HubStudio is very proud to have Daisy Hicks, the celebrated casting director back to coach for The HubStudio. This is an exclusive opportunity to learn more about the casting process direct from a successful casting director who is known for being friendly, supportive and approachable.

Actors will be required to prepare a two hander scene for the workshop, no longer than 90 seconds/two pages in length. There is no need to film anything beforehand. We will treat the scenes as though it is a zoom audition, so folks should have a set-up prepared where they can be comfortable to watch everyone’s scenes, but then be able to have their device in a position where they will be able to perform their scene. Another class member will read opposite them. 

Daisy will provide notes and feedback on the scenes, they will then self-tape their scene again, and we will revisit it in the next class, discussing application of notes as well as self-tape technique. Amongst this, we will discuss audition & self-tape techniques & tips.

Course Outline

Over the course, Daisy will focus on: 
  • Exploring self-tape techniques, the application of notes & feedback and script analysis. 
  • Exploring different preparation techniques for auditions. 
  • What the casting process entails across various mediums. 
  • Helpful hot tips & tricks to help inform your presence in the casting room.
