Class Description

Week 1: CASTING – Each of the students will film an audition, they will be watched back together. Hayley will give her honest thoughts on each performance and why she would or wouldn’t give them a call back. Students will then do an in the room call back. Week 2: REHEARSALS – Hayley will work through what a rehearsal session looks like with her. Pair by pair, she will teach them about character work and script work that they should be doing before they arrive for rehearsals. We will see the impact this has on their performance at the start versus the end of the session. Week 3 – REHEARSALS / TABLE READ – Rehearsals continued, students will then do a table read of a full episode. Hayley will discuss her expectation of them and also do’s and don’ts at this point in pre-production/ production. Week 4: ON SET – Do’s and dont’s on set. Students will then film their scenes self-tape style.
