Taped Audition Series
A MUST class for any actor based in the Southeast as 90% of all auditions are done by tape. The taped audition has become a special skill that is VITAL for every actor to master. This 8 month series focuses on all the little items actors have to achieve to present a “WOW” taped audition. Did you know casting directors say that less than 50% of taped auditions sent to them are acceptable and worth a look? If your tape isn’t professional-not only in video quality but acting quality, AND FIT ALL THEIR PARAMETERS—they just delete it. Don’t let that happen to you. This series teaches actors all the skills necessary to ensure casting watches your tape—and considers it! After 8 months of weekly practice—how can you not be a pro? If you are a serious actor, you SHOULD take this class.
After the first month, Actors will tape every week in class. Each month, a new element will be introduced.

Month 2: Mastering Eyelines
Month 3: What you DON'T say Gets you Booked!
Month 4: Speech Patterns/Identifying your Habits

Month 7: Researching Cont & Showcase Prep
Month 8: Casting Directors of the Southeast/Making Creative Choices that work
***This class for those who have already taken Basic & Working or equivalent elsewhere. Equivalent = knowing how to break down a script, understanding objectives, goals, tactics, moment before/after, love in the scene etc. The actor should already know and do this when they get a script as we expect actors at this level for the Taped Audition Series. We work only on acting skill for the TAPED AUDITION. If you don't know what these terms mean, then you need to take our Working Actor Series first.
