Casting director Marci Liroff has a passion for teaching as well as casting. From "Blade Runner" and “ET” to "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" from “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “Footloose” to “Mr. Popper's Penguins" Marci Liroff has long been one of the busiest casting directors in Hollywood. Having worked for over 30 years with the industry's top producers, directors and actors, her extensive knowledge of the casting process is invaluable for anyone looking to make the most of their audition opportunities.
After working for over thirty years as a Casting Director with some of the best directors and producers in our business, I have gained an extensive knowledge of what it takes to get the job.
For the last several years, in addition to my ongoing casting work, I have been coaching actors to help them prepare for auditions.
Many times while working on a project I see actors come in who are so ill-prepared for their audition, I want to take them aside and educate them. Talent and looks can get you only so far; in this day and age of dwindling scripted projects, the dedicated actor needs to be trained in the art of showing up prepared, present and ready to work.
I teach actors what they need to know before, during and after their auditions. I use my skills as a Casting Director to prepare them to win the part…before they even enter the room. Your audition should not feel like a visit to the doctor! It is your time to show us what you've got. I will help you feel more in your body than you've ever felt before.
In an intimate, one-on-one setting, I map out each actor’s personal path for success. With kids and newer actors who are just starting out, I teach them what they can expect in an audition. With seasoned professionals, I tailor each lesson to suit an individual’s needs and experience, with exercises that may range from running lines to breaking down the character to find its inner life.
In addition to private coaching in person, I have started doing private coaching thru SKYPE! This works really well if you need private coaching and you're out of town, if you need to self-tape for an upcoming audition, you're on location, or just can't quite get yourself over to me in person!
I look forward to working with you!
