Longtime casting pros Valerie Adami and Bob Kale will go over best practices for a virtual audition, with advice for making the most of the technology you have available. They will also offer a more detailed look at the essentials of making a good impression, from getting a headshot that really sells you to formatting your resume professionally ... and way beyond basics to selecting audition material that works for you, shaping it effectively, dressing the part plus a taste of how to take your audition to the next level.
