1-on-1 with a Casting Director

What is it?

A 3-hour masterclass with casting director Faye Timby (The Witcher) to receive direct feedback on your audition skills. 

What's it about?

Actors will prepare and perform a short scene from a script. Faye will then discuss the scene with you and put you on tape in a mock audition format, providing direction and feedback where needed and working on the scene until both parties are happy. All participants will be encouraged to read in with one another. All of Faye’s workshops are run in a relaxed, supportive and positive environment, allowing you to share and learn from everyone within the group as well as from Faye’s feedback. At the end, there will be a short Q&A where actors will be invited to ask any questions they might have about the casting process. 

Who is this for?

This masterclass is open to young people aged 16 – 26 who are Park Up members. Park Up is free to join – click here to find out more. No previous experience is necessary!


What do I need to bring/prepare?

Your scene, questions and yourself.

Faye worked as an agent for three years before moving into casting. She began working for Nadine Rennie, Laura Dickens and Annelie Powell.
