The footage is uploaded and you will receive a link each week.
FOOTAGE FOR YOUR REEL
What you really need...
Do not be fooled. No matter what level of actor you are, you will always needs more footage of a better performance for your reel.
Some actors believe that their acting reels can ONLY be moments from a film or tv.
Therefore, if don't book say... Law & Order, you'll never have any footage to use.
THIS IS NOT TRUE!
If all you have... Is an incredible audition recording of a great performance,
YOU CAN STILL USE IT!
It could get you into an audition. Or a Manager or an Agent.
At the end of this course you will also be filmed performing a coached
"TAPED AUDITION SCENE"
Something you can use.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
THE VERY FIRST CLASS.
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO BRING YOUR OWN MONOLOGUE TO PERFORM!
A half page or less. Choose something age appropirate and that also speaks to you.
Something you believe you could've been cast in! You will get to work one-on-one with your Director to find the nuances, subtext and the truth in your performance.
We highly recommend that you stay away from any blockbuster or iconic scenes!
There are also plenty of places online to download monologues free of charge that suit you. Put in the work.
Then the next 7 weeks will follow our personalized curriculum as you see yourself come to life on the big screen and two live cameras. Just like on set, actors are also given small lavalier microphones to wear on your lapels to record your audio.
We will provide all of the script content for you. You will then start being paired up with fellow actors to explore your emotional range and connection to the characters while learning to listen along with every techinque under the sun to get you there!
The final class will schedule one-on-one time to film your coached audition scene tape.
