Gordon Anderson began his career in the theatre, training at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama to be an actor before changing course to become a Director. He went on to direct for many of the leading UK theatre and opera companies, including the Royal Court Theatre, The National Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company, Scottish Opera and English Touring Opera before starting to direct TV.
His TV credits include: Granchester (ITV), The Mallorca Files (BBC), Endeavour (ITV), Lovesick (Netflix), Fresh Meat (Ch4), Shameless (Ch4), The Inbetweeners (E4) (BAFTA nominated) and The Catherine Tate Show (BBC)
During this session Gordon will use a selection of sides to explore the choices you make when preparing for a TV or Film casting, offering his unique Director's perspective on the casting process and paying particular attention to Self Tapes, which he finds himself increasingly casting from. He will offer feedback, redirection and advice to help you maximise your time in a casting before ending the session with an informal Q&A.
