Power B*tch with Jessica Blank 

SOLD OUT

More and more great roles are being written for women, especially on TV.  The range we can play is expanding: we get to be military captains, political leaders, detectives, deans and CEOs; women who hold power in their families, their communities, and their workplaces. But as a coach, director and on-camera teacher, I've noticed that a lot of actresses have trouble stepping fully into these roles--and it's not because of any flaw in their acting or lack of access to their own personal power. It's because in the world of auditioning--especially as women--we're taught to make sure people like us.  And there's still a lot of voices out there that say if we fully express our power, people might not like us so much. So when we get asked to play high-status women, we unconsciously inhibit our own power, not wanting to be seen as a "bitch"--which gets in the way of fully playing the scene. This class will help you change the narrative and come into your full potential as a POWER B*TCH

Status and Power - A Specialty On-Camera Class with Jessica Blank

SOLD OUT!

The vast majority of TV storytelling is about power in one form or another. Whether a show takes place against the backdrop of a workplace, or in a hierarchical system such as the military, the government, a law firm, or a police department, status and power are the invisible forces shaping much of the way your character relates to other characters. As a TV actor, part of your job is to know how to read sides for power relationships and how to craft your choices so that they reflect the real-life power dynamics inherent to the story you're being asked to tell.  The intricacies of power relationships-- and your character's "status" relative to the other players in the scene--should inform your choices and be part of the reality of the scene. And where your character sits on the "status" spectrum affects your choices about moments and actions, where the scene lives in your body, even your breath and eye contact.  In this class, we'll work on-camera with TV sides to learn to read scenes for power relationships, discover how those relationships affect your choices, and learn how small physical adjustments can affect your "status" in the scene.  We will also discuss how status and power fit into your individual "type"--as an actor, you'll always need to be able to play both sides of the coin, but part of your "type" does have to do with whether you're more likely to frequently get called in for higher- or lower- status characters.
