This workshop is private coaching in a class setting and will include improvisational warm-ups, acting exercises and cold readings (sides distributed at the beginning of class). Rather than treating cold readings as a "gimmick" to getting a job, attendees will tackle them as we do scene study, as professionally skilled actors. We will find who the characters are, what they need and how they feel - gaining a true understanding of who you're playing. Utilizing objectives, actions and emotions, attendees will develop a simple approach to the scripted material.
Class Size: 10 – 12.
RSVP: Please RSVP to the SAG-AFTRA Francisco-Northern California Local by email to Vicki Balich email@example.com. Please include your name, phone number and union membership I.D. number.
Participants will be randomly selected from those who respond, with preference being given to those who have not attended Conservatory events in the past year.
As a courtesy to members on the waiting list, if you have reserved a space in this workshop and cannot attend, please cancel your reservation by Friday, May 20. Failure to do so may result in the inability to attend future workshops.
We appreciate your enthusiasm to participate in conservatory classes. However, anyone who shows up without receiving written confirmation will not be granted access to the class. If you arrive late, it is up to the discretion of the teacher as to whether or not you will be admitted.
