SUN
Film Auditioning w/John S Davies
12:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Actors treat auditions as necessary evils—painful experiences they are required to go through in order to do what they love. But what if you thought of it this way: An audition is the first creative step in the development of a role. Which you probably won't get to play. But leave that to the gods. If you audition well and bravely, you will be noticed and asked to audition even more. Thus you'll get very good at it. Thus you'll get cast more often. Because the odds will be in your favor.
John S. Davies can teach you to audition well, If you really want to learn. Unusually for an actor, he works both on-stage and on-camera. He has auditioned hundreds of times for films, television, theater, commercials, industrials, musicals, you name it. And he gets cast.

TUE
Voice Over I w/Bob Michaels
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

This class is widely known as the VO-101 of our area. The class is wildly popular, having even brought in students from other states who seek to learn the art of VO from one of the most skilled and prolific performers in our area. Many talent agents also send their people to train with Bob. The reason is simple. Bob is one of the most detail oriented, technique-centric instructors that you could ever hope to meet. His brand of training grew from his intense dissatisfaction in his own educational experience. In most forms of VO training, the instructor gives the student a script, and then expects them to study it and perform it without any explanation of what they should be trying to achieve or how to achieve it. Bob's training is all about that missing information.
In VO-1, you will spend five weeks learning the most important facets of the art and business of voice-over, such as VO Style, Voice Culture, Relationships of Sound and Meaning, Script Analysis, Script Forms, Practice/Improvement Techniques, Studio Survival, Home Studio Info, Demos, Agents, Auditions, Marketing, and much, much more. There is copy reading in four of the five sessions, and students must download and review their sound recordings as a homework assignment each week

Class fee $300
