ACTSIA looks like it has another big year coming up for local screen creatives! Kicking off with a Business of Screen Acting workshop with none other than Anousha Zarkesh. Anousha, a casting director, has had her hand in some of the country’s most well known productions such as Cleverman, Tomorrow When The War Began and Jasper Jones to name but a few.

With over 25 years experience in the industry, Anousha has worked in many a genre from documentary through to political satire. No doubt a wealth of experience waiting to be tapped into and with only a few hours in the capital I’d suggest you prepare your questions asap. It’s quite rare that we get to hear the screen casting side of things so, I for one, will definitely be looking into getting a place because if blog writing fails I’ll always have film acting.

Workshop spots are $130 each ($110.50 for ACTSIA members) with the workshop running 12pm-5pm Saturday 6 May. Head over to the ACTSIA website for more info.
