About the workshop
Don’t miss a rare chance to hone your craft with one of Vancouver’s busiest actors and an in-demand acting coach.

FTM has partnered with ACTRA MB to bring you “Advanced On-Camera” with Aaron Craven.
He will start each day with a Q and A discussion covering the business and craft of acting, the audition process and practical tips for working on set.  Each day will also feature an extensive warm up, utilizing improvisational exercises to develop presence in the audition room. Actors will then work on-camera auditions each day, from modern Film/TV audition sides, which will be distributed in advance of the workshop.

Known as a busy actor and generous coach, Aaron runs workshops that challenge the actor to dig deeper with their choices and elevate their craft to a “booking” level.  He focuses on drawing out performances that are truthful, personal and clear and his practical approach to acting gives you the confidence and clarity to give your best performance in the audition room and on the set.

 “I love Aaron’s honest, straightforward approach. His passion & knowledge for the craft are contagious & his coaching skills are so beneficial. I was truly impressed with the level of talent. I would highly recommend his training to any actor ”.  – Jackie Lind, Casting Director
