Self-Tape Reel Intensive

This is a four-week course that takes students from step 1 up to the finished product: a self-tape reel that showcases your talent and personality. We begin with a process of not only narrowing down your "type," but finding a marriage between your natural essence and the kind of roles/genres that excite you. Then we search for the audition pieces that really allow you to shine, maximizing your essence and your casting potential. Finally, each of your pieces will be coached and taped with Scene Study and Audition Technique Instructor Patrick Mcgowan.

Dates: 8/4, 8/11 & 8/18 plus 1 hour studio time
