Ace Your Acting Audition
Mini-Worksho, Q&A and Book Signing with Casting Director, Producer and Teacher Liz Ortiz-Macke

Join us for a mini-workshop, Q&A and book signing. Written by Casting Director, Producer and teacher Liz Ortiz-Mackes, "Ace Your Acting Audition" is a practical guide on learning and mastering the auditioning process. The book provides a series of simple yet effective steps actors can take to make every aspect of auditioning work to their advantage.

In her years of casting for theatre, film, TV, commercials, industrials and digital media – having seen many instances of the good, the bad and the ugly of auditioning – Liz has developed a thorough understanding of what directors, producers, writers and casting directors are after. In this book as she has done in her popular workshops for organizations such as the Screen Actors Guild Foundation, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the New York Film Academy, Liz demystifies auditioning with humor, great show biz stories and tell-it-like-it-is honesty. Now actors of all types, at every level can learn to recognize and avoid the pitfalls of self-sabotage, make strong original auditioning choices and handle pre and post audition anxiety constructively. Ace Your Acting Audition shows you how, plus much more.

Liz Ortiz-Mackes has worked behind the scenes in the entertainment field since 1990. As the owner of Casting Solutions in New York City, Liz is an avid supporter of diversity in casting, Having been a Sag and Equity franchised agent on both coasts, Director of Special Events at the Dramatists Guild and Director of Artists Files On-Line at the Non-Traditional Casting Project, she has always empathized with and admired actors for what they do and what they go through. Part of the special understanding and insight Liz brings to all she does is based on her experience as a theatre director, having directed in New York, Los Angeles, Boston and New Hampshire. In addition to casting, Liz enjoys giving workshops around the country and overseas and has also branched out into producing, where she is involved with several film and television projects in production and development.
