Audition Workshop With Emma Sylvester
Emma will be giving her advice on Self Tapes, Zoom & live auditions with an interactive workshop. Actors will need to submit a scene prior to the workshop, and Emma will select scenes to give live feedback on during the workshop. Please note, not all scenes will be shown or will receive feedback. Actors will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the workshop, and gain valuable advice for future auditions. There will be a maximum of 25 actors per workshop. Workshop held via Zoom.
Emma began her career in casting doing favours for her friends, casting independent short films, music videos and corporate gigs, an actor herself at the time she found herself getting immersed in the work and launching a new career path which combined her love for actors and her training as one.
She went on to cast short film ‘The Snow Maze’ with RSA films (Ridley Scott Associates) which has since won best UK short at the London Film Festival, and went on to assist renowned casting director Carolyn McLeod on a series of independent feature films and projects for Netflix. Emma also assisted Casting Director Nancy Bishop in 2018’s NBC pilot season.
Emma is now working in-house at the BBC in its continuing drama department and works assisting John Cannon and Stephen Moore on Holby City. Additional work at the BBC includes ‘Father Brown’, ‘Shakespeare & Hathaway’, and as a Casting Director for BBC ‘Doctors’.
