The Winnipeg Film Group & Gimli Film Festival proudly present:
Acting Technique for Adult Film and Television Actors w/ Rebecca Gibson
Saturday September 29 | WFG Black Lodge | 9am – 5pm
$75 WFG Members & ACTRA Members | $100 Non – Members
Back by popular demand, award-winning director/producer/writer/actor Rebecca Gibson’s workshops help people book roles. As a former casting director, Rebecca has seen all aspects of the casting process, and has participated in thousands of auditions. The one thing that often holds actors back in their goals is weak film and television acting technique. As a highly sought after acting coach (including for the series Burden of Truth), Rebecca helps actors prepare for any situation. As a director who works across the country, Rebecca has brought out the best in highly seasoned actors, and people who had never before set foot on a set.
This class will bring you into the audition process, from prep through callbacks and negotiating your deal, to the on-set experience. It is ideal for directors, producers, and anyone who wants to accelerate their acting career, and their understanding of the film and television industry
Additional Note: One participant in each class will earn their tuition back through their in-class work. Just like an actual audition process, someone will be rewarded for their technique.
