What’s the best kind of class? One that is both informative and entertaining! As part of the series of workshops through the SC Film Commission, Richard Futch presented a seminar on auditioning today. While the target audience was the actors in the room, it was also very helpful for our students since Richard gave them tips on what to look for in their futures as directors and producers. With his dry wit and tell-it-like-it-is honesty, he had the room hanging on his every word.
At the end of the class, he had several volunteers audition in front of the camera (and the entire class – Jocelyn’s worst nightmare!). Then he played the footage back and gave them tips and pointers. It was a great learning experience for all of us.
