Picking up where Acting 101 left off, you'll work with the incredible Pete Jensen over the course of 6 weeks on a hands-on, working methodology of bringing text to life.
In six weeks, each actor will work on 1-2 scenes and 1-2 monologues from contemporary TV, film, and theater, helping you build your confidence in preparing for auditions and booked roles. You will sharpen your ability to break down scripts quickly and efficiently, and make choices that create vivid, compelling behavior. All aspects of script and character analysis will be covered, and attention will also be paid to finding the types of roles you want to pursue, the actor-director relationship, psychological gestures, and spontaneity.
These techniques will help you prepare for roles and auditions, and find your authenticity as an actor.
