I'm an extremely social person. And when I stay in my home studio most of the time, I really need to breathe in the air of real life. And I did just that the other day when I hosted a very successful Casting Boot Camp in Copenhagen, Denmark.
For a long time I have had an idea of passing on some experience of mine to tomorrow's talents. A glimpse of everything I've learned from a whole decade as a radio and TV host, combined with my current life as a full-time voie over artist. So when my American partner, Darion Taylor, who runs Tailor Talent Reels in Los Angeles, asked if we should use the time wisely while he’s in Denmark, it made such good sense to do a boot camp, which brings together the best of his and my world.
Together with the actress and film director Julie Ølgaard, we did a smashing Boot Camp for actors who want to be sharper at nailing the important castings. And why is that so important… ?! Well, in short, if you can not perform in a casting, the show stops just like that. No call backs, no jobs. The casting itself is the final destination for many aspiring talents, and that has to be changed.
And I must say, we used the six hours boot camp wisely. We tore them through the whole shewaine, and out came a bunch of very well-armed and confident “campers”, who very soon will start getting more call backs. Otherwise you must call me Curt!
My part, of course, was to make them aware of the potential of their voices, stuff them with tricks and tricks, and throw them into deep water with voice over, character acting, narration, and commercial speaking.
We are currently planning more Casting Boot Camps in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Online, and if Covid-XNUMX does not stop the whole show for a while, we will announce new dates very soon!
