This morning I attended a Hosting Intensive with Casting Director Kat Raphael. The Workshop was AIA Actors Studio.
In the workshop Kat covered the basics of hosting: the responsibilities of a host, finding your expertise, and incorporating this expertise into promoting yourself. We were also given time to to prepare a 30 second pitch for ourselves explaining what we felt our brand represents, and what we uniquely brought to the table. Last we worked on camera in a mock casting session. Afterwards Kat gave us notes about our pitches.
