Rick Laxton

Workshop 1 January 27th 11am

8 Students aged 6 – 10 years old.

Rick will give a 60min workshop on audition techniques that are tailed for the younger student.   The workshop will include an icebreaker game to give the children confidence and open them up to creativity, followed by a talk about the industry and a mock audition including feedback.   At the end of the workshop the children will have a deeper knowledge of the process of the auditions and have less fear and more confidence moving forward.

Filmed Auditions

The students will be split into pairs to shoot “filmed auditions” that can be used on spotlight.   Scripts will be given to the students from Rick in the days before the workshop and the children will learn their lines for the filming.  Each pair will be given a 20 min slot to rehearse and shoot their scene, which will be directed by Rick Laxton.   Andrea will edit the footage and each student will be given a file that can be put on Spotlight.
