Pros & Cons

Pros
Ramani is absolutely lovely! Very welcoming and friendly towards actors. I did a two week workshop with her at Ace. The first week we did self-chosen scenes audition style with a reader. She brought us in two at a time, so it wasn't daunting. Everyone did their scene twice. First, as is, and the second time with her redirects. The second week we did assigned scenes that she sent out the day before. Much like the previous week we ran the scene twice with our assigned partner. The only difference with the scenes was that we didn't have any context or character breakdown for them. Hence, the first run through we performed the scenes with our own choices, before receiving context of the show/characters. Then we were able to use the information to inform our second run though. This is my first workshop I've done in a while, and it was great to have such a warm environment to work and play in. She's working on numerous shows and projects at the moment which leads me to give her even more Kuddos to taking time out of her busy schedule to do workshops. Thank you Ramani!!

Pros & Cons

Pros
Ramani was wonderful during the Q&A - I saw her at ACE on 01/09. She took everyone's questions and answered them to the best of her ability. She was really informative about April Webster's office and how it runs. She also gave some wonderful insight in to the Canadian tv show casting process and gave really great detailed responses.
Cons
Her notes on performance are brief - she gave me an adjustment to add an emotion and change up how I did the scene and seemed happy with what I did. Like many of the other casting directors (Jamie Castro) she is kind of hard to read as to how you did overall. She seemed to like both my performances quite a bit but time will tell and we'll see if she calls me in. FYI, both her shows, The Strain and Bates Motel are in their last seasons BUT she said she had a couple pilots coming up.
