Actors work each week with scripted material from film or
television. They are expected to prepare the material in full-
this means script analysis ready, completely off book and
appropriately wardrobed as you would be if you had booked
the job and were on set. The class mirrors the work environment
of the set, thus allowing the actor to meet and overcome on-camera
challenges. Fundamental and advanced skills for acting with the camera are addressed- blocking, types of coverage, levels of performance and working with direction. The goal is to give students an opportunity to grow their knowledge
of film craft while manifesting performances that are filmatic and fluid.
Students block, tape and record their scenes and are given copies of their work.
ACTING FOR FILM - On Camera
Material is picked for each student by Alice in order to focus on areas
that are particularly challenging for the individual student. Scenes are
selected from our extensive library from theater, film and television.
The goal of this class is to allow the student to grow and explore every
aspect of craft. Elements covered include: script analysis, story structure
and conflict, proper and effective rehearsal practices, character
development, media specific vocal use, power and subtlety of
performance, and provocative story telling. This is a professional class
and students are required to put in rehearsal time with partners. Work brought into class is expected to reflect detailed attention to and knowledge of the following (where appropriate): the source of the material, the genre, the style of the writer/s, wardrobe, props, dialect, and knowledge of the entire story- not just the scene.
AUDITION & SELF-TAPE CLASS - On Camera
This is the most effective and sought after audition class in
Los Angeles. One of the greatest challenges you will face in the
audition is to stay centered in your own process and your own
choices. More often than not, you lose your focus in the waiting
room or give your power away during the audition. This class
will teach you how to: prepare for an audition by making strong,
personal, effective choices with the material; remain in your own
process before the audition; and take your most skilled and present
self into the room. This is NOT a technique class. This is you versus you. Alice will teach you to get out of your own way so you can take your best into the room. Alice has coached many successful actors with this approach. The true
goal of a great audition is more than booking the job. Once you expand your prospective about the audition you will move with greater aptitude toward success. Class covers taped auditions, cold readings, call backs, chemistry reads, and self tapings. Material is selected from multiple genres with roles
appropriate for your casting.
Each class meets once a week (Four times a month). Students starting mid month will be prorated. Tuition is on a month to month basis and will be due the first class of the month.
