"Voice & Casting Director Mark Estdale teams up with US actor/director Laurence Bouvard (TBC) to give a no-holds-barred, hands-on practical workshop on getting the best from actors. For both actor and director, connection is the key that unlocks engaging, truthful and believable performances. This session will unpack the actors tool box from Stanislavsky to Method and Meisner – and share the keys that help dialogue stand out. Using practical exercises and examples from a selection of recent titles, Estdale will get under the skin of how to get savvy with improving performances."
