Typical Workshop Format
Each actor should bring a picture and resume.
If you don’t have one – bring a snapshot and staple to it a prepared, typed resume using the examples in Acting Is Everything: An Actor’s Guidebook for a Successful Career in Los Angeles. These will be given to Mary Friday night and they will help me pick your audition scenes for Sunday. Bring a VHS video tape with your name boldly labeled on the binding of the tape to all of the classes. You may also bring and use an audio tape recorder if you wish.
Saturday Morning 10AM to 12:30PM
Meet – prepare a 2 minute introduction of yourself and then 30 seconds of what you hope to get out of the seminar. This is part of your auditioning technique so have an upbeat, interesting, fast introduction “as if” you are meeting a casting director or agent. I will comment on your presentation of yourself.
Relaxation – acting with no guard, being open, vulnerable with no defenses.
Emotion Exercise – Glad, mad, sad, glad.
Personalizing Exercise – “Who are you talking to?”
Lunch 12:30 to 1:30
Saturday Afternoon 1:00PM to approximately 6:00PM
Pass out Sunday’s Scripts. Most of you will have partners so you can rehearse together if you wish but you will each individually be shot on camera as if it were an audition, your partner will read off camera.
Day-Player roles on camera During these scenes I will help each actor give a better performance or give them a direction to take it a different way. Most of you will be doing it at least twice. There is much to be learned by watching and hearing the direction of the other actors.
Time Permitting. we will start reviewing your pictures and resumes.
