Participants will be tutored in audition and camera technique, acting and business skills, script and character work, as well as working with directors on scenes for their showreels.
Disabled actors are invited to apply for the intensive three-day workshop, which will be followed by the opportunity to build their contacts and showcase their talents to professionals across the industry. The showcase event is designed to encourage all who work with the BBC to draw on the widest possible talent pool.
To apply for the training programme, disabled actors are invited to submit a self-taped audition not exceeding two minutes in length. The training, run by ThinkBigger, will be held from 2-4 October 2017.
