Workshops

Portland Acting Workshops – These Will Also Appear on the Calendar

The Audition Intensive

Date: TBD | 11-4PM – $100 | 12 participants

Most directors and casting directors will tell you that they actually HATE the auditioning process. They hate putting actors under such pressure, they hate trying to judge if a person is right for a role in such a short amount of time, and they are well aware that some of the world’s most talented actors just don’t audition well.

But they’ll also tell you that it’s the best way we have. They have to see if you have the talent, if you look and sound the part, if you can take direction, if you’ll mesh with the rest of the company/cast. And so we audition. As an actor, I’ve had my fair share of auditions over the years. At first, I beat myself up. Then, I upped my preparation. Finally, I let it go. In my opinion, that’s the sweet spot. When you’ve done your work and can audition with confidence, then you know that everything that happens after that, is completely out of your control.

The Audition Intensive is all about technique and preparation. This Audition bootcamp will work on slating, making strong choices in the room, cold reading, call-backs and letting go!

*Each participant will be filmed, reviewed and given copies of all videos created in class.
