OC I Class Start October 29th!

This class is a great introduction to acting for the camera. For theatre folks, it is a great help in transitioning to the camera. For beginners, it is a great start to acting in general. I have had many complete non-actors walk out of this seven week endeavor as, what I would call, a capable actor. Most of us already have the tools that are needed to be a good actor. And I don’t mean special talent. I mean all that makes you who you are. It is often more about us getting out of the way of ourselves - what we already are able to do. My earnest goal for each person in class is that they grow from where they are. If you are just curious, this is the place for you. If you have never acted but you feel you have the passion, this is a safe place to explore that passion. If you just wanna take a class that stretches you and helps you get to know yourself better, this class is for you. If you want a class that will benefit you in your workplace environment with being a more authentic and a better communicator, this class is for you.

And if you are still unsure, come to the first class this Monday (Oct 29th) and audit - no obligation. If you like it at that point, you can still join, if there are spots left.

Cheers.
Ted

Actorcise Tuesday Daytime

It has been quite a while. But, I will be hosting an Actorcise, Tuesday October 16th, at 11am at the studio. (Actorcise is a cold reading workshop. Each actor gets to work on two scenes.)

As always, don't just show up. 
Please email me if you are planning on coming, and wait for confirmation on Monday: acted@att.net
Make sure you take my phone number for last minute communication (provided after you sign up).

I wanna allow time for each actor, so I have limited Actorcise to 10 people. 
Therefore, 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 sure. If you have signed up and have to drop out last minute, and your spot is not filled by someone on the waiting list, you are on the honor system for payment. However, we will certainly try our best to fill your spot ;-)

Come workout!

Ted

ON Camera II Monday Nights

I still have one spot in my OC II for experienced actors.

**On Camera Acting II
7 weeks Limited to 10 actors
Dates: September 10th - October 22nd
Time: Mondays 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.

A 100 dollar deposit holds a spot. The balance ($145) is due by the second class.
Venmo and Paypal work. Venmo (free) via: 323-819-9622.
Paypal address: twrooney@pacbell.net (Choose Friends or Family to avoid surcharge).
Credit Card Square payments (add 3% surcharge) are also accepted.
