It's so easy to get so focused on the audition.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're so focused that we forget to connect and say "hi" when we walk into the casting room.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's no wonder...because they can be scary rooms.😬🙄 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, when you're prepared, ready and the character is really living in your body it makes it easier to say "hi!".😎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's your trick to saying hi?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Auditioning and Business Mindset

The Young Adult Audition Intensive teaches young actors how to audition in front of casting directors, agents, and producers with the goal of landing roles that they're passionate about!

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.
Contact us to join.

Doesn't getting your big break start with the right audition? It's time to prepare before the heat🔥 of episodic season.

Let me help you create a performance that is honest and compelling so you can stand out from all the other actors looking for their chance.

You'll leave this Audition Workshop having mastered some critical skills:
1. How to use the stated aka the lines to bring the story to life.
2. How to become unique, stand out, and embrace your creativity with the unstated aka pauses.
3. How to not feel restricted and use movement with your body in the physical life.

Finally, I deal with mentality. I help actors shift their focus from ‘booking the Job” to fully experiencing the story that they have the opportunity to create. This is especially crucial when you get to the “network level”. With so much on the line, if your mentality is not in check, you will be caught playing toward a result, not truly allowing the experience to affect you.

I don't know if anyone has ever told you this, but there is a future of yourself looking back at your past self in the mirror. When that day comes and you see all your hard work on yourself reflected back, it will be an amazing feeling knowing that you did not give up when things got tough; instead, you made sure everything was done so proudly.

The mind is a wondrous place. We can see the world in different ways depending on what we believe and choose to think about it, or how deeply we want to understand something.

To practice conceptual thinking means you are connecting disparate ideas together for deeper understanding of an idea so that other new thoughts may be created as well. You then thread these thoughts similar to putting a puzzle together in order to have a logical point of view of what’s happening within the story. This philosophy only allows a certain depth.

When we have conversations, there's a certain awareness that comes forth. Memories are brought up from underneath what you're conveying to one another and this makes your point-of-view believable on screen as the "I".

How we accomplish this is by asking “Why”? Answer these questions when prepping.

Why am I saying this as “the character”? Why would I communicate in this way?

Could there be a past memory underneath these words as to why I’m reacting this way? Why did I choose this unstated experience versus another?

Why am I talking with this person?

Why am I in this particular environment in the story?

Why do I have this need? Desire? Passion? Job? Family Situation? Partner?

The why will allow you to plug into the emotions of you as the character instead of playing a conceptual idea of the character. Can you see the difference in this mindset?

As an audience member, I'm fascinated by your ability as an artist who has these memories along with words which makes me believe anything you're saying on screen. You truly became the “I” within the character.
