What an incredible opportunity! In this 2-day intensive workshop you will learn from not one but two top industry professionals from one of London’s top video game production companies, Liquid Violet. Katie Young, Studio Head and Hannah McCarthy, Casting Director are hands-on and cast thousands of voice actors for their productions. 


It’s a day in the life of a casting director where you’ll learn tricks and tips, terminology, dos and don’ts, efforts, showreels and much more.

 A true, insiders look at a Casting Director’s process on receiving a new client brief, what they’re looking for when they cast (what to include and what not to include in your demo/showreel, how to improve your chances of being ‘seen’). Next up, auditions. What do casting directors look for in an audition, the different types, all the way through call backs.


Alfred Hitchcock once said that 90% of successful movie making is in the casting, and this ethos is at the heart of what Liquid Violet is all about. 


Day 1 will be held at Liquid Violet studios where 16 actors will be able to work on characters in the booth and learn tips and strategies to help them bring out their best.


Day 2 will be held at Old Diorama where actors will continue working on their characters and get to ask questions and learn from each others performances.
