Senior 12-17yrs: 12.30-2.00pm  

3.  ANNUAL REFRESHER WORKSHOPS & & PHOTO UPDATES:  The main purpose of these refreshers is to retain a connection between ACTOR & AGENT. brush up on audition techniques and most importantly for us to see where our actors have travelled to in their creative development since we last worked with them.  

Liz BF will be taking these workshops.  One of our biggest challenges is to stay up to date with our actors skills & development so we can keep putting them forward for opportunities that are right for them e.g. a child or teen who's more hesitant & unsure at 6yrs or 12yrs, can be presenting a completely different picture a year later.  Their developing and growing is so rapid and we need to keep pace with it.  

There are 4 each year for 5yrs and over.  An LBF actor can go to as many of these refreshers as they choose to.    Just email Liz on liz@lbfkidstalent.co.nz to book in.  

Professional headshots to update Actor's Bios are taken at this workshop by photographer Caro Ducobu.
