Brave Studios is the only place where you can experience a workshop with Rosie that lasts a full day with a small number of students. Rosie provides our students with individual feedback and specific training in Auditioning skills appropriate to any type of audition. You will experience a screentest complete with personalised feedback (unlike you’d ever receive at a real screen-test) and you will get the opportunity to workshop a scene with Rosie and see how you progress throughout the day.
Our auditioning course is a unique opportunity to gain an insiders perspective on the casting process which will help students to better understand how the industry works and what needs to be done to have the best possible chance at success.
