Performers have the unique opportunity to work with Award-Winning L.A. Casting Director, Lisa London on on-camera acting and auditioning skills.

It’s no secret that the past few years have been challenging for the industry, but Lisa and her office, London/Stroud Casting have remained busy including casting 7 films in 2020. Recent 2021 projects include: NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE which filmed in Knoxville, Tennessee, STRONG FATHERS, STRONG DAUGHTERS which filmed in Los Angeles, and they are consulting for a film company, PARADOX PICTURES. 

The film, OLD HENRY starring Timothy Blake Nelson which was cast in 2020, premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2021 and has been getting amazing reviews, even Cher tweeted about the film. CANYON DEL MUERTO starring Tom Felton, Abigail Lawrie, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd and Abigail Breslin filmed in New Mexico and BASEMENT which filmed in NYC are both getting released in 2022.

Lisa and her partner, Catherine Stroud cast actors from all over the USA, and even the world for these different movies. 

Currently she has over 15 projects in pre- and post production.

Focus of Lisa’s On-Camera Camp:
• Perform a mock audition for Lisa and learn how to prepare for auditions
• Actors are paired up with “co-stars” and will dissect and analyze their scenes
• Gain invaluable feedback and training from Lisa London throughout the week
• Lisa directs all actors’ scenes

Lisa also uses improvisation, an important skill to have both on-set and in auditions. She will run fun exercises that keep actors’ minds sharp, focused and keep the creative juices flowing.

To round out our students’ education, campers also work with one of ACANY’s Teaching Artists, a bonafide on-camera actor, taking specialized workshops!
