Focus is on the self-recorded audition - these types of auditions and will be crucial for film and television for the foreseeable future.

Of course, this class is not simply about the dos and don’ts of recording your audition, but emphasizes creating job-getting performances - delivering an audition package that grabs attention immediately, maintains impact, and contains surprises throughout. Along with organic work, Winning the Audition delivers numerous approaches and a few “tricks” to make sure that you stand out from the pack.

Topics covered include script analysis, emotional preparation, using the reader, effective framing and focus points, scenic transitions and structure, risking and confidence, the slate, frame size, vulnerability, the invisible partner, etc. During the second term (spring) we will also cover the callback - both Zoom and in person, featuring adjustments for maximum impact.

Each week (beginning in week three) you will be given a selection of sides to shoot and share with your online class. You will get weekly feedback and notes to keep you moving forward, gaining the confidence and knowledge needed to nail it when it counts.

1st 8 weeks: $440.; 2nd 8 weeks: $400.

N.B. All courses progress in a logical and consecutive sequence. Furthermore, students are frequently turned away once the maximum number of participants has been reached. For these reasons, students who begin the session agree to complete the entire session and are, therefore, financially responsible for that session.


"Thank you for the privilege of being in the room with the benefit of your wealth of knowledge, experience, discernment and creativity. I have been hungry for a good teacher for decades and having found one I can respect and learn from every time I'm in the room, I feel truly blessed. Thanks for allowing me to occupy space in the room in which you are charging the ions!!!”
