Kevin made his transition into TV directing, after spending 20 YEARS as a camera operator.

Today he regularly directs ITV's Coronation Street & Emmerdale.

After recently shooting an episode of Corrie with Kev, I wanted to bring him onto the site to reverse engineer the entire process.

In this 2 HOUR member-only mastermind, we play out my audition tape for the show, compare it to the final scene we shot on-set, Kev explains EXACTLY what he needs from an actor, in order to give them a job - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!

During the broadcast, we discuss:

  • Kev's 40 year career in TV - and the wide variety of jobs he's done.
  • How Kev became a camera operator in the mid-90's.
  • His transition to directing 'Coronation Street' and 'Emmerdale' in 2019.
  • The casting team at 'Coronation Street' - and how to get on their radar.
  • The recent episode of 'Corrie' Kev and I shot.
  • My audition tape - and why Kev decided to give me the job.
