Description

In Conversation with Joshua Bitton, US Actor and Acting Teacher and Nicole da Silva with Hamish Michael in the interview chair.

“I’ve been lucky to work with a lot of brilliant Aussie actors. The biggest issue they face seems to be the graduated pace of LA auditions, and the near complete lack of process in the rooms.”

Pilot season is a quick person's game. Auditions come quickly and audition rooms move at a breakneck pace. One to two takes if an actor is lucky

This is an opportunity to discuss the US pilot season and what Australian actors need to know when they go to LA for pilot season. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions.

Registration Essential:
