On Camera

Audition Skills!


Teen/Adult Classes



July 10, 2010 Saturday





Instructor: Casting Director / TV Director, Sally Forcier


This workshop is designed to introduce and refresh your ON CAMERA AUDITION skills.

We all know the frustration of auditioning and rarely getting the job. 

With some simply tips and tricks you can increase your booking ratio.

This affordable workshop will take you behind the "curtain" and understand, from a Casting directors perspective why you havent been booking and how you can turn that around.


Whether you have had some training or not, this workshop takes each talent to the next level and keeps them fresh and ready to audition!  We cover all the different types of auditions you will encounter for commercial, film and print.


Don't let too much time pass with out training by a professional.  As a casting director, I see talent just not prepared and I find it a shame. Remember, you just never know when the phone will ring for the next national commercial!!!


Sally Forcier, Casting Director, focuses on training how to have fun with the audition process, come out of your shell and know what types of auditions to expect so your confidence is the best it can be.

Teleprompter & Ear Prompter



Date :






Instructor: Sally Forcier


This class will help you understand how to work with the teleprompter for industrial / educational videos or long monologue/scene auditions.  We will have hands on training inside a studio with a teleprompter with heavy dialogue. You will learn to work through the read in a conversational manner.


This class is designed for the actor who has had some experience or training and is ready to take it to the next level.



Read what other students have said about this class:

"Sally's teleprompter/ear prompter class was so worthwhile and practical. Because she's a talent herself, a casting director, teacher, and producer/director, she has extraordinarily valuable perspective and gives it quickly, generously. A perfect class."  

Linda Fischer, Bay area Actor


"Dear Sally,
Wow! I am blown away by how much I learned in your Introduction to Teleprompter/ Earprompter Workshop. I came into the class thinking I would not be able to do very well since I didn't even have a clue what a teleprompter looked like or what was meant by an earprompter. You were organized and always ready to answer our questions and concerns.
You gently took us from being quite lost, to having a good understanding of not only how this process works, but how to do it. I was especially impressed with the way you started out with the simplest of scripts so we could concentrate more on working with the teleprompter. As we got more comfortable, you gave us longer copy to play with. The increase in the degree of challenge was perfect. On top of that, actually being able to operate the equipment ourselves, gave us some hard to find, behind-the-scene experience.
When it came to working with the earprompter, you gave us great direction and tips ahead of time, that I found to be priceless. Watching ourselves in the playbacks was really good too. I highly recommend this class AND, I recommend you as instructor hands down.
with warm regards,
Joei Heart, Sacramento Actor
