SIX WEEK INTENSIVE

See dates below

Goal: To empower the actor and help them relieve the fear and anxiety they have towards auditioning, while also training them to be competent, and to own their audition scenes.

Week ONE — Assessing the source of your specific auditioning fears

 What we'll cover:

  • How to avoid getting psyched out or intimidated
  • How to avoid choking under pressure
  • How to perform your best when it counts the most
  • BONUS: The Biggest Mental Mistake made by actors in the audition room

The student will also receive a handout that specifically breaks down and clarifies the types of Fears and Anxieties an actor might be confronted with, AND how to overcome them before the audition. This Manual is theirs to keep for reference.

WEEK TWO  Introduction to Script analysis for film and television auditions

 What we'll cover:

  • How to prepare/what to do when you've been given the scene the night before.

The actor, need's to posses a technique that is simple and to the point. He/she needs a structured way of working that becomes second nature and is NOT in your head.

Weeks THREE & FOUR  Intense film and television mock auditions

Beginning in week three, every student works in every class. Each actor will receive direct feedback from their taped audition.

 What we'll cover:

    •    The student will arrive for a mock on-camera audition. Class will be treated just like the real world, where the teacher will become the casting director. The scene will be given in advance, exclusively from film or television. Critiques will be given at the end of each class.

Week FIVE  introduction to cold reading

 What we'll cover:

  • The actors will be introduced to a technique used only when it's a cold read, i.e. you've been given a scene by a casting director, and you only have 5 min to prepare.

Week 6  The Business of Auditioning, The Real world vs Theory

 What we'll cover:

  • What the Casting Director is really looking for.
  • Students will hear pre-recorded audio comments from casting directors, regarding not only the business, but there pet-peeve's with actors.
  • There will be a Q & A session.

Since actors are in diferent stages in there careers, and I want to inform you as best as I can,  I encourage you to bring a lot of questions.
