Do you ever feel like your TV/ Film audition is coming up, but you're not sure how to prepare? You want to be able to put your best foot forward and make a lasting impression with the casting director.

In the Free On-Camera Audition workshop, we will break down scenes from current TV material in order for you to see what it takes to create a compelling performance that will captivate those watching. We'll give you sides before the workshop so that we can show you how to prep, and break down the scene material together.

We'll spend the time helping you identify your character traits and motivations along with the mechanical aspects of storytelling- so that when it comes to audition time, all of these aspects will be on display for a compelling performance. As with any other skill set in life, practice makes progress! In this workshop, we're providing an environment where you can work on your skills and get feedback to continue improving your craft.

The next Free On-Camera Audition workshop is on Monday, May 17th at 2:00 pm. Reserve your seat by visiting www.eventbrite.com/e/annie-grindlay-studio-zoom-free-workshop-tickets-153720097951

Hosted by Annie Grindlay and Carla Rosati. See you there!

It's not always easy to make it as an actor. When you're trying to audition for a role, the competition can be intense, and your skillset is put under a microscope. This Free audit class will give actors the tools they need to succeed in both their auditions and beyond.

The Auditioning and Business Mindset class will teach you about your professional brand- who are you? What do people know about you from a first impression? Why should they hire YOU over someone else? You'll learn what business habits you need to create each week to stay ahead and consistent.

Additionally, the class teaches TV/ Film audition technique as an essential skill that actors need to know how to do. We'll go over drama and comedy scenes, how to play a role in the auditions you take on, as well as some tips for prepping and executing your best performance.

Sign up for the Free Auditioning and Business Mindset Audit Class taught via Zoom on Sunday, May 16th at 3:30 pm by visiting www.eventbrite.com/e/ag-studio-auditioning-and-business-mindset-online-audit-05-16-21-tickets-153708170275.
Actors at every level are welcomed in the class. See you there!

Listening. It may seem simple in acting. But many have a difficult time reacting to what’s being said to them instead of what their next line will be.

Try this exercise...Ask another student or friend to read sides with you. Decide not to read through the scenes beforehand. You may read the premise. Begin the conversation with your line. Then pause and listen to the other characters' lines. Wait until they are fully done speaking. Take in what they just said. Then go down to the page to retrieve your next line. Repeat these steps.

You will notice your sense of urgency to look down instead of actively listening. After practicing this exercise a few times, you will begin to calm down enough to want to listen to the other person. The conversation will become interesting and intriguing. You will notice little stated and unstated experiences throughout the dialogue that you wouldn't be able to pick up on.

This exercise will help you learn to really listen and accept what’s happening in the story in the present moment. Pretty powerful!

Our focus is helping you create a honest and compelling performance that captivates those watching your audition. It’s not enough to work on the lines; you still have to prep the unstated experiences (pauses) and physical life. It takes all 3 components to bring the scene to life and become believable on screen.

We invite you to the next Free On-Camera Audition Workshop on Monday, April 19th at 2:00 pm. We will provide sides before the workshop to prepare to then breakdown the material together for you to visibly see how to strengthen your auditions. You will be amazed at discovering the array of details to add to your performances.

We must always remember that our job is to be the storyteller. To bring the writer's words to life through our imagination, our visions, and carefully carved moments that come from asking WHY!

As a young actor, your mentality is of utmost importance. If you walk into that room trying to book a series, you miss being able to share your craft in the present moment. The work becomes product-oriented, forced, and planned.

You book a series if you allow who you are living in the story to dance freely in the room, experiencing every delicious moment as they arrive! For this reason, the studio decided to create a Young Adult Class specifically for those who are 18TPY. I discovered that there is a real need for this type of class in L.A., as there are plenty of kids classes and adult classes but not much for the ‘in-betweens’.

Under the guidance of our teacher, Patrick Cohen, you will learn to craft dynamic moments to create a snapshot of a full and interesting character’s life in the audition. We will work to develop a deeper understanding of how to really storytell for an audition, and how to navigate moment to moment when actually performing for casting.

If you are interested in the Young Adult Class, message our studio director, Melissa at [email protected].

“Patrick has cultivated an environment where actors can trust themselves to explore the work with openness and curiosity, knowing that each individual brings something unique to every role.

After every class I feel more and more excited and inspired to pursue my passion, witnessing incredible growth and refinement in my audition technique. I now feel I have the tools and the confidence to set myself apart in the audition room.

Thank you, Patrick, for your infinite wisdom and encouragement. I couldn't recommend this class enough!”

Hi there, I’m an old friend of Annie’s and am hoping to get in touch. Can you let her know? She can contact me here on Facebook or [email protected]. Cheers and many thanks!
Thanks to Annie I have booked 2 short films and now have IMDB credit. She instills confidence and technique. Taking her classes were the best decision.
