Next Class - This Sunday

This Sunday begins my 7 week On Camera Acting Class.
This class is being co-taught by my partner in the studio, Brooke Totman and me. As always, if you are curious and not ready to commit, you are welcome to audit the first class, and see what it is all about. Do not, however, show up without getting confirmation from me.

**On Camera One (with Ted and Brooke) 
7 weeks - Limited to 10 Actors 
Dates: July 14th - August 25th 
Time: Sundays 10am - 1pm 
The total cost is $275.

Beginning with improv and easing into scripted scene work, this is a relaxed, fun approach to getting comfortable in front of the camera. The objective of the class is to establish the foundations of a process that emphasizes simply listening and talking - being "in your skin" - as opposed to in your head. This is a great transitional class for theatre actors and an excellent foundational class for new actors. All work is filmed, reviewed and discussed - time permitting.

A 100 dollar deposit holds a spot. Refunded only up to 48 hours before the first class. The balance ($175) is due by the second class, after which there is no refund. Venmo and Paypal work. Venmo (free) via: 323-819-9622. Paypal address: twrooney@pacbell.net (Choose Friends or Family to avoid surcharge). To register or for questions contact me at: acted@att.net

**On Camera Acting II (with Ted Rooney)
7 weeks Limited to 10 actors
Dates: June 18th to July 30th
Time: Tuesdays 6:30 - 9:30pm
The total cost is $285

The class is especially tailored to actors who have already been through the OC I class.
Though this is not a requirement, actors need to have the fundamental abilities that OC I covers.
If I don’t know an actors work, I will need to see something on tape or in person.

Moving beyond "being in your skin" and finding simplicity on camera, here the focus is on
rehearsal process, the "headspace" of the character, script analysis, and auditioning.
Actors are expected to up the ante, as we get into the hard work of acting.
Know that this class will require more outside time than OC I.
All work is filmed and (time permitting) viewed and discussed.

DISCOUNT - OC Camera Acting I

Hey All. My Sunday Morning On Camera I acting class with Brooke starts in a couple day (May 19th), and there are two ways you can squeeze in. One is to take this limited discount I am offering. I am knocking 50 bucks off the already low price to the first two that respond to this notice. The other way is to take one of the three audit spots available for the first class. This means you get to sit in and participate in the first class for free. This is a great way to see what this whole On Camera thing is all about. After class, If there is a spot available, you have the opportunity to join for the rest of the 7 weeks.

This particular 7 week course is the very same program I designed with a better looking teacher ;-)

Any questions about any of this, drop me a note with your number, and I be glad to chat with you about things.

Advanced Acting Classes

There is still room in my On Cmaera I class (see previous post) that starts Tuesday the 30th. My daytime scene study class is also beginning next week. My rarely taught Character class starts a couple weeks aftewards.

Ted

**Monthly Ongoing Advanced Scene Study
5 weeks this month
Limited to 8 actors
Dates: April 30th - May 28th
Time: Tuesdays 10am - 1pm
The total cost is $150 (5 classes June will be 120, as there are only 4 classes)
If space is available, an actor can drop in on one class for 35 bucks.

The class is especially tailored to actors who have already been through the OC I and II classes,
but it is open to anyone who would be considered an advanced on camera actor.
If I don’t know an actors work, I will need to see something on tape or in person before they join.

As soon as you sign up, we will work to find a script for you.
You can partner with someone in class, if you like, or go it alone.
If alone, someone else in the class will serve as your “informed reader”.
It is really up to you what to work on. You could work on an “out there” character to stretch yourself,
or something right up your alley to get more comfortable in your realm of castability - comedy or drama…
The hope for the script is that it is something you have not viewed…at least not recently.
As most of you know, I have lots of options to throw your way, if you let me know what you have in mind working on.
Actors are expected to bring in their work "camera ready."
That means off book, loosely staged, and raring to go - unless the actor wants to work in “audition format."
All work is filmed. Each actor receives their weekly video files.
Time permitting, the work is viewed and discussed

The full payment of $150 reserves your spot.
Venmo and Paypal work. Venmo (free) via: 323-819-9622.
Paypal address: twrooney@pacbell.net (Choose Friends or Family to avoid surcharge).
---------------------------------------------

**On Camera Acting III (Character Work) - 6 weeks
Dates: May 13th - June 17th
Time: Mondays 6:30 - 9:30pm
The total cost is $210

This class is for either advanced actors or actors who have been through OC I and OC II.
It was designed to be a continuation of those two classes.
Moving beyond yourself in the given circumstances - the bread and butter of an on camera actor -
the focus here is on stretching the actor’s sphere of comfort to include previously foreign behavior.
Whether it is with an different voice, personality, or movement,
character work is “owning” those differences. Bringing life to them.
It is stepping into the skin of someone who walks and talks unlike yourself.
Techniques in accomplishing this are discussed and practiced.
With my assistance, each actor decides how much they want to stretch and with what kind of material.
All work is filmed and (time permitting) viewed and discussed.

A 100 dollar deposit registers you.
The balance ($110) is due by the second class.
Venmo and Paypal work. Venmo via: 323-819-9622.
