Monday, November 25, 2019, 6:30pm
Here's your opportunity to work with this TOP NY CD who is one of the most actor friendly CD's in the biz!
In this 4 week class, each week will build on the last and all sessions will be on-camera. The course will start off with cold sides so that Meghan can get a "feel" for your type as well as an opportunity to focus on each actor's individual on-camera habits and how this could affect your audition. From there, she will focus on both prepared sides including feature/indie films as well as television sides.
You will also self-tape and submit to see how well you are coming across to casting directors who you don't know you as an actor.
Week 1- Cold Sides
Week 2- Prepared sides
Weeks 3 & 4- Self Tape Assignment - Learn what can make or break your on-line auditions
*Based off of your training with Meghan, she will suggest scenes best suited for you and your reel!
Assignments will be emailed 1-3 days in advance from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring in TWO copies of your sides - one for you, and one for your reader to EACH CLASS (with the reader's lines highlighted).
Always bring a hardcopy of your headshot/resume to class for feedback purposes.
Scenes will be recorded on-camera and made available to you within one week. An email notification will be sent from email@example.com when the clips are available to view and download from your AC account. Videos are for educational purposes only and are NOT to be posted on YouTube, Facebook, or any other public viewing site. Please note: Occasionally technical issues do occur, as a result video clips are a courtesy, not a guarantee.
