ADVACNCED CASTING WORKSHOP January 19-25 10am-2pm 35 St Roch Paris 75001


This 6-day workshop is your opportunity to gain the skills and confidence to win film-acting roles. Perfecting objectives & choices actors are encouraged to create original and personal activities. Actors can shine when they have The Key to their character and attract Casting Directors who want to discover your unique talent. Actors learn from practice how to raise the stakes and pick up the cues.

Your Objective (the centerpiece) should stimulate your Choices. From your Choices actors physically create Organic Activities.  Do you know the film’s tone and style? Is it a genre film?  Actors need to be specific and personal to offer a unique voice and bring the script to life. Auditioning “sides” when you don’t know the script can be like searching for a needle in a haystack; it’s common for actors to work without a script. Using The Character Tree, actors create 3-dimensional individuals while transporting themselves into the role making it uniquely yours.

Here actors meet the moments by keeping your work fresh and being fully present. What you bring in reflects how you’re received so bring in joy, conviction, and ease. Meditate and focus and leave your baggage behind by keeping it simple. Charlie Chaplin said, “Simplicity is no simple thing.” Here actors find the simple truth.


Charles directed MELISSA LEO (THE FIGHTER 2011 Academy Award Best Supporting. Actress Laura Linney (THE SAVAGES, LOVE ACTUALLY), Michael Imperioli (SOPRANOS), Calista Flockhart (ALLY McBEAL) Charles has invited many casting directors to his workshop from New York and London and recently hosted Debbie McWilliams who is currently casting JAMES BOND 24.
