APRIL 2017 NEW ON-CAMERA AUDITION INTENSIVES! These essential on-camera intensives will help you bring your unique voice into each and every audition. Whether you are new to auditioning or a veteran actor, we will help you overcome obstacles in order to make the casting room a safe space where you can feel confident and empowered. In order to delve deeply into all types of genres, some workshops will focus on Comedy and others on Drama.
AUDITIONING FOR COMEDIES with Eric Hunicutt Focus specifically on comedy scenes and sides across a wide spectrum of comedic styles - including multi cam, single cam, network & cable TV, and film. Explore the use of improvisation in and out of the "room:" when it's appropriate and when it isn't, how to "have fun with it" and riff with a reader, as well as other tools and techniques for getting loose and staying loose before during and after the audition.
Dates: Six Wednesdays, April 5th - May 10th Time: 7pm - 11pm Rate: $495
THE ENSEMBLE: Embodiment through Scene Study with Jamie Wollrab Posture, Openness, Alignment, Gesture, Voice, Body Language, Tonality, and Choice, this is where the actor's power comes into play. Because only 10% of communication is verbal, the rest of our gifts lie in our physical and emotional instrument. To be fully free on stage or in front of the camera, one has to go well beyond the text and breathe life into each character from head to toe. In his years of teaching Voice and Movement, Jamie has found that often an actor is communicating unconscious habits that are impeding them from tapping into the deep truth of characters. Physical tension, lack of voice integration, shallowness of breath, nervous ticks often hold actors back from experiencing their full potential. This eight-week workshop will immerse the actor in relaxation, vocal, breath and body exercises. It is designed to help augment the actors current techniques and open them to endless possibilities. Go big or go home! In this advanced workshop actors will: - Work on scenes by the Great American Playwrights - Spend one month working on a scene - Begin to unearth habitual patterns and learn techniques to connect more deeply to the truth of the character - Experiment with Non-Linear Movement, Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais, Linklater, Fitzmaurice and Laban work to name a few
Dates: Sundays, July 10th - September 4th *no class on August 7th* Time: 5pm - 9pm Rate: $600 *Students must be 18 or older. Instructor approval for workshop is required.*
VOICE AND MOVEMENT
with Jamie Wollrab This is a drop-in class. The voice and body are essential tools for the actor that are often overlooked. This 90 minute class is designed to open up and free these instruments through relaxation, breaking through habitual tension and body patterns and deepening the understanding of one's inner life and outer behavior. The person is revealed through the voice and body; we will explore our inner life through imagination, Alexander Technique, Feldenkreis, yoga, Laban, breath work and optimal body alignment. The goal is to surrender to the true self so we can work with ease and authenticity - on stage or in front of the camera. WHEN
$35 per class *Please RSVP to Jamie Wollrab at email@example.com by the Thursday before the class you would like to attend.
