RICHMOND MINI WEEKEND!

September 17-18

FOUR CLASSES TO CHOOSE FROM!

SATURDAY 9AM -1 PM:  THE BASICS OF BUSINESS 

So many films and television shows are eyeing our beautiful Richmond, but how do you get started or how do you get noticed?

Open to anyone at any level of acting, ages 15 and older.

Highlights of the workshop include:

  • "So you want to be an actor..."
  • Background Work
  • SAG/ AFTRA
  • "How Do I Get an Agent?"
  • Headshot and Resume Evaluation
  • Branding Yourself with Social Media
  • Brief discussion of Self-taping Auditions
  • Auditioning in the Room and Other Things That Get You Deal
  • How to Be a Working Actor Outside of LA and NY

SATURDAY 2 PM - 6 PM: COLD READING TECH

In this afternoon class, we go deeper with "sides" (scenes from the script) given out in advance.  Every audition is different.  Some are improved.  Some are scripted.  Some are pages of dialogue and some are just one line.  Each experience in class will be different for each actor.

  • "Attacking the material" - Script evaluation.  What do they want?!
  • Self tape audition evaluation (material provided in advance.  Taping to happen prior to class.)
  • Cold reading from script (provided the day before).

SUNDAY 9 AM - 1 PM: CREATING YOUR OWN CONTENT

The fastest way to get yourself noticed is to create your own content!  Whether it's a webseries, a short film, or an independent feature, we will break down from concept to distribution for to effectively create your own content, cheaply, quickly and effectively.

Each participant will be asked to bring an "idea" to the workshop to pitch.  It does not necessarily have to be an idea you expect to produce.  

SUNDAY 2 PM - 6 PM: ALL ABOUT TEENS!

This workshop is open to anyone 11 years old - 17 years old.  We will explore audition prep work, work some scene study, discuss the audition process and on set ettiquette.  This class is meant to be a "work out," some come ready to work!

EACH INDIVIDUAL CLASS IS $75 OR $100 FOR TWO CLASSES OR $150 FOR THREE.
