Fall Classes

Hey All. Here are my next classes. I may add an OC I daytime class. If you would prefer that, let me know. OC I on Wednesday night should fill up fast, so if you are seriously interested, you should get your deposit in right away.

Also, for advanced actors, I have yet to settle on a time for my next scene study class. But, I plan on having one :-)

Cheers.

Ted

**On Camera Acting I - 7 weeks (Limited to 12 actors).
Dates: September 13th - October 25th
Time: Wednesdays 6:30pm - 9:30pm
The total cost is $345 (I have one $200 scholarship of a student cannot afford the class) 
A $100 dollar deposit holds a spot. Refunded only up to 48 hours before the first class. 
The balance ($245) is due by the second class, after which there is no refund.
Mailing address for check (preferred) payments, below. Venmo works, too: 323-819-9622. 
For Paypal, ask for my account address. Choose Friends or Family to avoid surcharge
Square payments (3% surcharge) are also accepted.

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.

——————————————————————————————————

**On Camera Acting II - 7 weeks (Limited to 10 actors)
Dates: September 12th - October 26th
Time: Tuesdays 6:30 - 9:30pm
The total cost is $305
A $100 dollar deposit holds a spot. The balance ($205) is due by the second class.
Mailing address for check payments, below. Venmo works, too: 323-819-9622. 
Paypal payments accepted (My Paypal address:
twrooney@pacbell.net. Choose Friends or Family to avoid surcharge). 

Moving beyond "being in your skin" and finding simplicity on camera, here the focus is on script analysis, 
the "headspace" of the character, rehearsal process and auditioning. Actors are expected to up the ante, 
as we get into the hard work of acting. Know that this one will require more of your time outside of class. 
The class is especially tailored to actors who have already been through the Foundational I class, 
though that is not a requirement.


All work is filmed and (time permitting) viewed and discussed.

Summer On Camera I Class

Hey all. I will only be teaching one class this Summer, and it is On Camera I. It will be a Saturday morning class. Email me if you are interested.

Below is the information on the class.

Current Scene Study Classes

Hey Guys. Here is my offering for advanced scene study. On Tuesday mornings starting in May, I would like to offer a 4 week class that meets every other week and a 3 week class that does the same. Sound confusing? The idea is to give actors two weeks to pick and prepare a scene. Of course, if you committed to both segments, for you it would be an 7 week scene study class. But I have sensed that this is a little too much for many, so I am offering the option to sign up for a class that meets every other week. If this is still unclear, take a look at the breakdown below ;-)

Best.

Ted

4 Weeks - Scene Study (Limited to 8 actors)
Dates: Tuesdays - every other week May 2nd through June 13th
Time: 10am - 1pm
Cost: 120 bucks. Deposit of 30 dollars holds your spot. Refunded at more than 48 hours in advance of the first class

     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 and loosely staged - unless the actor wants to work in “audition format”. Still, the expectation is that the material is camera ready.
     All work is filmed. Each actor receives their weekly video files. Time permitting, the work is viewed and discussed.
     The requirement for this class is that you have either been through my On Camera Acting I and II classes, 
or you are very comfortable with on camera work and are proficient in on camera acting preparation and script analysis.

Spring On Camera Classes

Hello All. This is my next round of classes. For the OC I classes, I realize that filling up a daytime class might be bit slower. I know the evening class will fill up right away. So, if you can manage either, I encourage you to sign up for the daytime class. I will also be offering an Advanced Scene Study class this round, for which I will be sending out a separate notice.

I wanted to also say that since my OC I and II classes are progressive (one class builds on another) I would prefer that actors do not miss any classes. So, I would prefer to fill the class with actors who can commit to being there. 

One more thing to note this round is that we will be taking a week off in line with PPS spring break the last week of March. So the time period will actually be 8 weeks.

Best.

Thursday the 16th Actorcise

Hey All.

There will be an Actorcise this Thursday the 16th of February from 11am to 1pm.

As always, don't just show up. 
Please email me if you are planning on coming, and wait for confirmation: acted@att.net
I will send you details the night before. Make sure you take my phone number for last minute communication.

I wanna allow more time for each actor, so I have limited Actorcise to 10 people. 
Therefore, I when you sign up, I need you to be committed to showing up. If you are not sure you can make it, please hold off signing up until you are. I will keep a waiting list for last minute cancelations. But if you have signed up and have to drop out last minute, if your spot is not filled by someone on the waiting list, you are on the honor system for payment. You can then send a check or pay via Paypal or Venmo. However, I will certainly try my best to fill your spot :-)

Cheers. Ted 323-819-9622
