Course Descriptions

THURSDAY

11:00am – ORIENTATION
“Ask Alan Anything about Acting”. Former CESD talent agent Alan Nusbaum offers inside tips on getting the best talent agent and/or manager, how to find paying auditions, plus much more.

2:00 pm – IMPROVISATION TECHNIQUE
The act of creating without planning. Learn the art of spontaneous performance without specific or scripted preparation. A great method to develop writing skills, and feel free and confident in auditions.

4:15 pm – VOICE AND BREATHWORK

7:30 pm – MAKING MONEY IN VOICE-OVERS
How to make money as a voiceover actor and work anywhere in the world.


FRIDAY

11:00am – ACTORS DIAGNOSTIC
Actors will be asked to make an honest assessment of their acting strengths and weaknesses, whether vocal, physical or emotional and reveal their inhibitions along w/their most passionate aspirations as artists. This exploration will lead to material being assigned, designed to challenge them in those specific areas, and by working directly on their “issues”, turn their liabilities into assets, or at least go a long way toward removing the fear or lack of confidence, overcoming these obstacles, and breaking through to expand their skill set, improve their technique and grow in their craft.

Commercial Casting Director Vicki Goggin will be offering tips and feedback as you shoot your TV commercial screentest for the talent agents and managers.
