You’ve done your time at acting school.
You’ve had some success at castings.
You may have even broken into Czech films.
And now you’re ready for more.

How do I take the next step?

You need to be confident that you can act in English. Prepare yourself for working in England or America before you leave home!

Starting in April/May 2010, Brian Caspe, an experienced American actor and acting teacher, together with Vivid Casting will be offering an exclusive course to help Czech actors get comfortable working in English. The course will be focused mostly on on-camera work with a lot of emphasis on listening, speaking and interacting in English. We will work primarily with film texts and getting performances that are built for the screen — not for the stage. Not only will your feel more comfortable picking up any text in English and going to an audition, you will have the tools you need to make get the job.

Why should I sign up?

  • Work on your English: spoken and reading comprehension, listening and understanding, accent and phrasing
  • Learn about the acting business beyond the Czech Republic: agencies and casting directors, promo materials
  • Work intensively on screen acting technique: get performances that are built for the screen — not for the stage
