Auditioning consistently well is the key to becoming a working actor. Since there is nothing like practice---aside from learning the techniques that will enable them to be consistent---students will be practicing auditioning and interviewing in each class. However, getting work as an actor involves more than just auditioning, so students will also be learning and practicing the tools needed to get them those auditions. We will be looking at: career objectives and strategy, knowing who you are and what your selling points are, pictures and resumes and reels, networking, keeping up with contacts, getting an agent, appearance, etc.
This class was very successful this last fall. If you would like to hear what students experienced, I could steer you toward one of them.
A note: All classes will take a close look at “under five” auditions--due to the current need in Portland for actors capable of “nailing” the smaller roles in TV and film.
