"Stan’s a great teacher - what I’ve learned in his classes about auditioning for the camera and acting techniques is priceless." M. TolliverThis 4 week workshop goes virtual and just like the studio version, replicates the actual audition experience and is designed to teach and solidify those skills that will consistently result in successful readings: making specific character choices, expanding emotional range, playing precise objectives, engaging the actor’s imagination, and learning solid, dependable technique. "Loved, loved, loved your class... you are an insightful, generous coach...you gave me huge insights into where I might fit in, my type, how I’d be seen and where I should concentrate my next growth efforts…." D. BarnesStan’s style provides clear, effective instruction with no gimmicks, and he is particularly adept at focusing on each actor’s unique personality, casting type, strengths and weaknesses. Roles are tailored accordingly and will give each actor the ability to stretch in challenging directions. Actors will be paired prior to class with film and tv sides emailed in advance. Recordings of your work will be available. Course of 4 classes. Friday July 24th-August 14th. 11am-1:30pm.
