Marci Liroff
Marci has well over three decades of experience casting for the heavy hitters of American cinema, and it shows. I've taken a number of helpful auditioning courses with some great instructors, keeping up with industry standards the best they can. But Marci's the first instructor I've been to who actually sets those standards. Her classes are selective in who they enroll, which as an experienced actor, I appreciated. You're getting the inside scoop from a major industry pro, rather than the elementary basics in those courses aimed at beginners. It's a completely different level. It also means you'll be watching more enjoyable performances from your classmates, thank god. Marci has a keen sense for what works and what doesn't in a performance and knows exactly how to communicate it. She also has an almost supernatural ability of knowing when an actor is struggling for a line before they've even realized it themselves. She gives constructive and to-the-point criticism, but only when necessary. Her sharp eye for a good performance tells her when to leave well enough alone, which is something I've rarely seen in any class. I'd recommend her course for anyone serious about the business of acting.


Do you feel like you leave your auditions wishing you’d done better and others are getting your opportunities?

Do you want a better understanding of the business as a whole so that you can be more empowered with knowledge?

Don’t you want more than the simplistic re-direct that you get from the CD workshops in town?

I will provide you with an insider’s view into the competitive world of auditioning from the point of view of directors, producers, studio executives and casting directors.

From my over 40 years as a casting director, producer and acting coach I will explore:

  • Break down the character and scriptMarcicasting
  • Audition Technique
  • Online opportunities
  • Mindset
  • On-camera technique
  • Reconnect with the artist within you
  • How to make the audition room YOUR room
  • Special Industry Guest Speakers

Each week I will dissect one audition scene and take each of you through the audition process — from initial pre-read through callback to final callback/test on camera.

In addition to sharing my personal insights, I will have industry guest speakers participate in classes two and three. Guest speakers through the years have been:

  • Director Mark Waters (Freaky Friday, Mean Girls)
  • Actor Amy Landecker (Transparent)
  • Actor Willie Garson (White Collar, Sex and the City)
  • Agent Brandy Gold (TalentWorks)
  • Producer/Writer Al Gough (Into The Badlands, Shannara Chronicles)
  • Director Norman Buckley (Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters, Gossip Girl)
  • Actor James Morrison (24)
  • Actor William Mapother (Another Earth, In The Bedroom)
  • Actor and director Melanie Mayron
  • Agent Mimi Mayer/Angel City Talent
  • Actor Romy Rosemont (Glee)
  • Manager Kristin Konig (MGMT Entertainment)
  • Producer Craig Perry (American Pie movies)
  • Producer/writer Dan Berendsen (Baby Daddy)
  • Actor Peter Mackenzie (Blackish, Trumbo)
  • Actor Sean Patrick Thomas
  • … name a few!

“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.” – Marci Liroff

Wow... wonderful digestible golden nuggets of info. It felt very much like meeting a caring friend for coffee and getting insider tips.  I have  always read in acting books that the CD is on the actor's side, they called you in for a reason, they want you to do well.  You discussed this and now I feel 100% fantastic.  I just need to be prepared, be good, and walk away.  I can control being prepared, being good and I can also control walking away. You pointed out so many reasons that things could not feel right in the room (lost financing, producer's son in the hospital, etc.)  We shouldn't try to read anything into things out of our control.  I don't know why but just hearing that made me feel so much better.

I also loved the tips on eco casting.  I have booked many roles (or got called in) from self taping but I always send my audition off a bit worried.  You cleared up every question I had.  Now I will send those auditions off with an air of confidence.
