This course will increase your confidence with all aspects of screen work and with self-taping scenes for auditions. We’ll also work on a monologue that you film yourself during the course. We’ll review that together, and it could provide you with a scene to send out to casting directors or agents if you wish. These days, actors are expected to be very self-reliant. Most auditions start as self-tapes. And working on TV series often means engaging with multiple directors and with little or no rehearsal. This course will offer guidance, tips and exercises to enable your charisma to shine through in any role you play. All sessions are recorded and students expected to watch any filming done of themselves each evening. Also, during the course, to self-film a monologue, and work on a scene as instructed.
