Los Angeles Workshop

“Are you screen testing well?”  This is a question that Al Pacino asked Les Chantery when they worked together, several years ago.

For Les, this question propelled him on a quest to understand, what were the common factors (other than talent) in all successful screen tests, that either got the actor the job or the attention of the casting director.

Les teaches an essential skill that all actors must master – How to show up when it matters most – in the screen test. He teaches actors what is crucial to know about performances that ‘Pop’ within the restraint of the mid-shot frame.

This 3-day workshop will equip actors with the most advanced and effective audition skills and techniques. Covering crucial aspects of the audition process, from script analysis and preparation, to being in front of a casting director.  The art of self-taping is also covered, allowing actors to create dynamic screen tests on their own.
