“First you have to know how to book the job. Then you can work your craft.” – Dustin Hoffman

 

Most actors don’t realize that acting and auditioning are two completely different skill sets. There is certainly crossover, and being a professionally trained actor will definitely improve your chances of booking work as an actor, but auditioning is its own craft with specific techniques actors can use to increase their skills, confidence and callback and booking rates. 

 

In this 6-week audition intensive, you will learn a cold reading technique taught by the top audition coaches in Hollywood. You will learn the art of two-person auditions and the keys to staying grounded and present with your script while keeping the truthful life and connection with your partner. You will learn the keys to choosing and performing a monologue that showcases your strengths and range as an actor. You will also learn the art of the slate – an often underestimated and misunderstood, yet critical skill for an on camera audition. You will also learn the do’s and don’ts of auditioning and you will explore your mindset around auditioning and the unknown barriers you may be creating for yourself in your auditions. 

 

This class is open to actors (ages 16+) at any stage of their careers. All audition practice will be filmed on HD video camera with immediate playback for feedback and individualized coaching. At the end of the 6-week class, students will receive all of their video footage from each class. Class size is kept small to ensure individualized attention for each student.
