What's Included

Think of the first moment you get an audition: The emotions, The inspiration, the excitement-the thoughts of all that could be! Well, if you’re anything like me, then you also know how quickly all this positivity can evaporate and be replaced by fear, anxiety and tension. In my experience, most of us actors love performing, but dread auditions. The reason why: we don’t prepare to succeed; we prepare to avoid failing. This is not our fault it is a failure of the system. Most of us have been taught that in order to succeed, you have to get it RIGHT. But the wonderful reality of acting is that there is no RIGHT. There is only the truth. If you want to work consistently then you have to be consistent (when auditioning and when you’re working), and the only way to be consistent is by finding and developing a system that works for you. In my class you will learn how to incorporate what you already know into a step by step system that asks questions, digests meaning, and attacks material without judgment. In developing your own process, you will find the consistency and freedom you need to do inspiring work every time and rediscover the joy of discovery. This class is not about MY system for doing your best work, it's about finding YOURS both on camera and in life.
