IN LIFE, YOU DON'T GET A  SECOND  CHANCE

TO  MAKE  A  GOOD  FIRST  IMPRESSION.

SKILL SETS WE WORK ONTOGETHER

The following topics are what you will be working on in front of the camera,

then reviewing your acting choices every class to become, as I repeatedly say:

"A self-directed actor who can also skillfully comprehend

and adapt to redirects instantly."


TOOLS FOR YOUR AUDITIONS:



Slating Techniques and Interviews,

because 60% of 1st callbacks result

from simply how you enter

the room and say 'Hello'.

Cold Reading & Listening

(They must be practiced together)

Because 60% of 2nd call backs 

are judged by the skilled

cold reading technique

and acting choices you make.

Reactions On Camera...

because they are as important as dialogue To any viewer.

Running Lines with a Scene Partner

...while ....cold reading and listening! 

Making intuitive acting choices 


Basic camera knowledge:

What is my frame?...Where is my look? etc

YOUR On-set behavior  - [Do's and don'ts]

Learning some basics about how to evaluate your work.

ACTING ON CAMERA

MY COACHING PHILOSOPHY

PRACTICE YOUR AUDITIONING

PROCESS ON CAMERA

From the moment you walk in the door, be in it to win it or don't bother to show up.

So we practice the process; we tape the process and stay 100% present throughout the process. Then, together,  you and I watch the  replay and evaluate your performance.  Then, I'll transfer it to your thumb drive and later, after you step away from your work, you watch it again.
