This 8-week course offers students the opportunity to develop their on-camera acting skills, specifically focusing on crafting a self-tape audition. Actors will be assigned audition sides from TV and Film screenplays, then work with those texts to build fundamental script analysis skills, learn how to bring themselves to a role, and practice crafting an arc for the scene. Through in-class taping and some outside preparation, students will gain a practical toolset that they can carry into their own auditions including blocking for the camera, prop usage, and visual storytelling. Upon completion, each actor will have access to their in-class tapes that they can then use for their own promotional materials. 

This class is intended for beginner and intermediate actors and will require some outside work. 


This class is offered as part of The Actor's Conservatory Studio Program

Dates: June 4 - July 23, 2024 (8 classes)

Time: Tuesdays, 6:30pm-8:30pm

Location: In-person at The Tiffany Center 1410 SW Morrison St., Suite 501

Cost: $200

Whether you're looking to improve your audition skills, turn in that perfect self-tape, or hone your craft in a one-on-one setting, a private session can help propel your work to the next level. I'm now offering the chance to work with me for monologue coaching, self-tape coaching, and technique coaching. These sessions can be booked as singular or recurring appointments. Students will have the opportunity to film their progress and use the footage for their reels.
