Advanced On-Camera Audition Intensive
Sundays starting Jan 6th through Feb 3rd
Kids (ages 8-12) 10am-11:30
Instructor: Ashley Skomurski
Building on the foundations learned in the initial on-camera audition intensive class, students will work on advancing and refining their on-camera audition skills. The class will cover advanced techniques for improv, commercial, voice-over and film/television auditions. Using current scripts, young actors will get extensive hands-on practice through mock on-camera auditioning in an actual studio setting. Class size is limited, so students receive significant one-on-one coaching. A link with each week's work will be sent to parents so they can track their child's progress. During our last class, students will do a live audition for parents.
*Students must have participated in a prior on-camera audition class or have approval from the instructor to participate*
On-Camera Auditioning for Kids
(One Day Workshop)
Kids (Ages 8-12) Sat Jan 26th 10am- 12pm
Instructor: Ashley Skomurski
Whether your child is just starting to peak an interest in acting or they have been at it for years, the art of the audition is a vital component to being a great actor! Casting Director Ashley Skomurski has run hundreds of auditions and has years of experience teaching children the art of auditioning to get them closer to booking the job! This one-day workshop will focus on all aspects of auditioning for the camera. Starting with the basics of audition room etiquette, the class will move through slating, delivering a read, taking direction and making adjustments. Kids will practice with commercial, television and film copy that is age appropriate and inline with what they might actually audition. After the class, parents will receive a link with the videos of what each young actor worked on that day. At the end of the workshop, the students will provide a brief presentation of their favorite audition piece, as well as a Q & A for parents with Ashley.
