Description: This class focuses on professional audition preparation for the camera. Actors build auditioning skills through an innovative approach to cold reading and split focus techniques. Marking a script accurately for group thoughts allows the actor to scoop and hold correctly for camera auditions and is essential for effective cold reading.  Film and television monologues/scenes are developed in a systematic method for auditions. Detailed script analysis allows actors to attack film and television scripts through character development and interaction, using obstacles and objectives, as well as beat changes. Call back auditions are prepared by using a variety of improvisation techniques such as internal dialogue, literal and emotional subtext, psychodrama, and emotional recall.
