Film/TV Classes

**All of our weekly students, whether enrolled in Scene Study or Film/TV Audition Technique, are required to participate in The Creative Lab course. You can either complete it as a prerequisite before starting your acting course or concurrently with your first month of classes.

Our Film/TV classes immerse you in a physical practice curated to help you hone your individual point-of-view in all your auditions and on-set performances. The personal and imaginative analysis tools learned in the Creative Lab will help to stimulate your imagination, and develop your authentic voice in your overall work. We don’t adhere to reductive formulas that have been widely adopted by many studios. Instead, we foster personal and imaginative analysis tools enabling you to breathe life into characters in a way that’s distinctly yours. Our aim is not for your work to just blend in; it should stand out!

A 2x-a-month class designed to help students level-up their self-tapes in the virtual age of casting. Students will be assigned audition material from currently-casting TV and film projects, tasked with submitting a self-tape before each class. During our sessions, we will review tapes, addressing what is effective or not—both in terms of performance and the technical aspects of recording—and rework the scenes. Additionally, we share & analyze tapes that booked jobs and look at what sets them apart.
