The Tape That Booked It!

Join Us For:
Jennifer Buster’s Casting Workshop

This In-Person Workshop is truly one of a kind and not to be missed. Casting Director Jennifer Buster, 20+ years of casting experience in LA and other markets, will be sharing with us some of the actual tapes that booked roles in her latest projects. If you are wondering why you’re not booking as much as you’d like or getting the callbacks you crave, this workshop will be an absolute eye opener. You will get to see what most actors will never have the opportunity to witness, the actual tapes that booked the roles of various projects from Hallmark to independent films to TV shows. They might even be some of the roles you auditioned for. Come see for yourself the kind of work that lands the role. It will change the way you approach your auditions forever.

A handful of attendees will get to perform and be coached by Jennifer on the scenes from the booking tapes, before they are shown. This rare opportunity will help the actors coached and those watching see the casting process in action, get into the mind of the casting director, and learn what it takes to truly be bookable in an audition.

Whether you are selected to perform or not you will be blown away by what you will learn. Watching the coaching process and then seeing the actual tape of the actor that booked the role will completely change the way you look at auditioning.

*If selected coaching participants will pay an additional $49.
