Work with acting coach, film/TV/voice over actress, and senior staff member Jane Dashow and learn what it takes to audition for the camera! * AGR Junior Exclusive: Ages 12 - 25 Only! *
Every audition for film and TV is put on tape. Why? Because the casting director in the room isn't the only person deciding whether or not you're gonna get the job. Directors, producers, writers, and anyone else with a say in the matter will be looking at you on tape and deciding whether or not you have what it takes to be in their project. So your look and talent better come across as great on-screen as it does in person.
Dates: Sundays, March 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st, 2013
Capacity: Limited to 8 actors only!
Location: AGR, 15 West 28th Street, 9th Floor, NYC 10001
Pilot Season is HERE and more projects than ever before are casting and filming in NYC! If you want to compete with the best of them for major roles, then this is the class for you.
Just some of what we will cover:
* what casting directors are looking for in auditions
* understanding the differences between acting for the stage and acting for the camera
* what it means to "fill" the frame
* how to keep calm under pressure
* understanding your scene to maximize the performance
* how to make bold, confident choices that stand out
* learning how to cold read
* what to do (and not to do) in the audition room
* how to approach callbacks
Every week, students will be assigned SERIES REGULAR roles, so it's very important to be as prepared as possible, which includes knowing your lines, being familiar with your scenes, and coming in ready to make adjustments.
In the second half of every class, you will work with Jane and one of AGR's best readers in our professional camera studio, fully equipped with lighting, microphones, blue screen backdrop, and HD camera. Everyone will get to watch each other's work and hear Jane's feedback from our main studio on a flatscreen television monitor. Each student will get his or her work emailed to them in the form of a High Definition Quicktime Movie to review and learn from after the class. You can also use these videos for your Actor's Green Screen account.
