Carn's Theatre Passion interview Micheal Moor

You will have recently seen my articles on Red Door Productions and Casting Limited. With the announcement of their 3 day intensive course, I wanted to find out more from agent and owner Michael Moor. Below are his answers to my questions to do just that.

Tell me about your vision for your 3 day intensive course Michael?

Having sat on audition panels for over 25 years – I have seen too many very talented young people make obvious and often silly mistakes at audition. The aim, vision and inspiration for my Audition Busters workshop is to shed light on the drama school audition format, process and etiquette. And in short to enable the student to focus and be mentally prepared for the audition process.

How will it benefit its candidates – what can they expect?

My 3 day workshop will cover the key elements of a drama school audition:

  1. The application and personal statement.
  2. Audition materials and the presentation/performance of songs, monologues and movement/dance.
  3. The final interview process.

I expect the candidates to gain a clear understanding of the task ahead of them so that they are not phased by the real thing!

Audition Busters – will essentially be running ‘mock’ auditions and offering valuable experience and constructive feedback. The students on the course will be expected to do some preparation in advance of the course and to take notes and keep a journal during the course. Finally I expect the students to reflect on what they have learnt over the 3 days.

What’s the one piece of advice you would give your younger self if you had your time again?

I would tell myself to have patience with myself and with others – it takes time and ‘life experience’ to develop as both a human being and an artist.

In your capacity of MD of RDPC what one single piece of advice would you give for people looking for an agent?

I would say that it is important to develop a professional and working relationship with your agent. You need to be able to speak to them and trust them both professionally and artistically.

In all your years in your previous career, is there someone who stands out which is currently setting the world alight or is one for us to watch?

To be honest I am proud of all my ex students – not just the high flyers. I am most proud of the ones who overcame difficulties and personal issues for succeed – often against the odds.

Fun questions

If you could go back in time when would you go back to and why?

Actually, I would like to do it all again!

If you could have a super power what would you choose and why?

I would definitely like to fly!

You are holding a dinner party choose three famous guests dead or alive to attend?

I would like to invite Muhammad Ali, Bob Dylan, Meryl Streep.

Thank you for your time Michael, fascinating to learn more on your Audition Busters workshop. I believe this will be invaluable to people looking to hone their audition skills and be successful. Who knows where this will take candidates in their careers!
