TO JOIN IN PERSON CLASSES, PLEASE
WEEK ONE - AUDITIONING AND THE BIZ
Most students wanting to work professionally or work more are not halted because of their talent. They simply don't understand the business and what they're up against. In week one we cover who's hiring, what for and how you can catch their eye.
WEEK TWO - COMMERCIAL ACTING
There is a reason why most celebrities start in commercial acting, that's where the money is! While we all want to work in film and television, everyone starts in commercials. It helps most to know how that works and what brands want. This is the start for 90% of professional actors and models.
WEEK THREE - TELEPROMPTER
A teleprompter is a tool every professional needs to learn to do WELL. The professionals that get most jobs, do this skill very well. It takes practice and skills at home, long before auditioning or being on set.
- There are two types of acting, breaking yourself down to find something hidden or layering to get to someone else.
