Tue June 7, 7:00 PM
You can be the best actor in town, but if you don't have the right scene, no one else will know it!


The number one constructive criticism by Casting Directors, after a workshop, is that many actors choose scenes that are not right for them. At The Casting Network, we've been working with actors and scenes since 1989, and we know what works. We can help you pick your best scene and hone it for success.


In addition to being regular readers at The Casting Network, Aubrey Manning and Ben Zelevansky are working actors who have experienced first-hand the value of casting director workshops. Sign up for their FREE Scene Workout, and you'll have a chance to pick their brains on everything from your scene choice to your headshots to your performance to your workshop strategy...and anything else you can think of!


Aubrey will guide you with your drama scenes, while Ben will handle comedy. To see them in action, check out Aubrey's reel and Ben's reel!

A TCN Excluseive! $45 for THE FIRST 5 TO SIGN UP then $65
Sat June 11, 11:00 AM
The video game industry is one of the fastest growing segments of entertainment and far out-grosses the film industry in earnings.


What sets video game voicing apart from animation is that you don't need wacky voices, you need GOOD ACTING.


In this fun workshop, take your acting skills and apply them to the high stakes scenarios of the video game world.


Randall Ryan, owner of Austin based HamsterBall Studios, has been a favorite casting and voice director in the world of video games for 15 years. He's in town for E3 and has agreed to give us an exclusive workshop on what it takes to voice video games.


"I met Randall through a VO workshop and was able to throw my hat in the ring for some VO gigs. I've subsequently voiced video games such as Activision's "Titanic", and "Leisure Suit Larry: The Reboot", plus interactive educational games. Randall is a super nice person and a terrific voice director" - TCN member, Gillian Brashear


Randall casts and voice directs 15 + games per year, each one having multiple, sometimes dozens of roles. He calls on actors from all over the country to submit auditions for not only games, but broadcast commercials, educational software and many other platforms of voice work.


Randall's casting and directing video game credits include Lord of the Rings Online, World of Warcraft, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Transformers: Ultima Prime, The Walking Dead, the Deer Hunter series, World Series of Poker, mobile gaming, children's games, sports titles, and shooters. Randall and HamsterBall also continue to do advertising and interactive projects, and are currently voicing the national broadcast and social media campaigns for LendingTree and Dev Bootcamp.


Important notes: This workshop is great for both union and non-union actors. Prior VO experience is not necessary, nor do you need to have a VO demo reel to benefit from this workshop.


Format: You will get voice over copy ahead of time then come prepared to have fun!
