No matter what level of actor you are, master your audition technique and enhance your career with the help of Amy Gossels, head casting director and owner of Amy Gossels Casting, in this transformative virtual seminar presented by the Woodstock Film Festival.

  • Open to all levels and ages of actors and aspiring actors.
  • Reserve now as space is limited! 

This masterclass will touch on the critical things actors can do to vastly improve their on-camera auditions. It will consist of an in-depth talk by Casting Director Amy Gossels followed by on-camera work with a few of the actors in attendance and finish up with a Q&A. Amy will coach and adjust several actors who volunteer through their auditions (using copy provided at the session), demonstrating how her innovative approach and technique will quickly and markedly elevate ALL of your on-camera auditions. She will also share key industry insight into the casting process to help actors increase their work opportunities.

Amy’s teaching style is highly specific, transformative, results-oriented and perfectly tailored for both seasoned and aspiring actors.


After graduating with honors from Brown and graduate work from the Rhode Island School of Design, Amy Gossels began working as a producer and casting director in

New York and launched her company, Amy Gossels Casting, which has maintained its reputation as one NYC’s most highly respected casting offices for more than two decades. During Amy’s 25 years in the industry, she has been the casting director,

and in many cases a producer, for 100+ film and television productions (IMDb) and

has cast more than 1500 commercials (including many CLIO winners). Amy has also established herself as one of the most sought after on-camera technique teachers, coaches and speakers, with regular engagements at prestigious organizations including The SAG-AFTRA Conservatory, SAG-AFTRA Foundation, Atlantic Theater School, The Brown University Club, AMDA and Fordham University.
