Tuesday, January 15, 2019, 6:30pm

This event is in the past.

** This is an intermediate to advanced class.** Actors need previous musical theatre audition and performance experience.

In today's digital world, it is important to have video footage of your musical theatre clips. Take your 32 bars outside of the audition room and online where you can submit a professional audition clip to casting directors, agents and managers.

In this 3-week class, you'll have the opportunity to work with Bloc NYC Legit Agent JIM DALY to create new footage to develop and showcase your musical theatre demo reel.

In the first class, you'll learn the basics of auditioning on camera: where to look, what to wear, important notes on acting and singing for the camera in the audition process. All performers will present selections from their book, where Jim will narrow down to a suggested 2 song selections for production per actor. He may also suggest a new song to work on between weeks 1 and 2. Week two will be another open class of rehearsals, perfecting your 2 song selections. Week three will be private one-on-one coaching and filming. We film your 2 songs with 4K video, professional lighting and sound. Audio mixing is done in post-production for the perfect balance.

You will have the same professional accompanist throughout your 3-week class and filming for consistency.

Limited to 8 actors. ** This is an intermediate to advanced class.** Actors need previous musical theatre audition and performance experience.


"Where to begin! Thank you so much for the whole experience. Initially I came with an end goal of having a reel that would give me presence in a very digitally forward and changing game. But I've left with so much more; an insight into the things like using your type cast in a way that shows your strengths in a over crowded market. The specificity of intention needed to communicate a song in a musical as well as how that translates on camera." -Wreh-asha Walton
