Words of Wisdom from John Ort:

I have to believe you no matter what you do. Don’t think about too big or too small on camera. I just have to believe you. It shouldn’t feel like anyone’s acting.

Our Format
Tonight is the night to learn from John Ort. The evening begins with a Q/A with John. Next, each actor will get to work on camera with John and receive feedback. Each actor, one at a time, will go into our studio to work on camera with John on pre-selected sides and be supported by one of our outstanding readers. The rest of the class will get to watch and listen on a television monitor in the main room. Each actor's work will be emailed to them in the form of a High Definition Quicktime Movie after the class to review as they wish. This class is slotted for a 3 hour period meaning that class CAN last 3 hours but if all questions are answered and each student has been seen by the CD, class may possibly end before the 3 hours is finished.
