  • Truthful Storytelling – Aspiring Actor, Working Actor, Teen

    LIVE PERFORMANCE CLASS

    Actors—it is not about you. Once you realize your sole purpose is to convey an intended message, a hidden confidence emerges. This class shifts your focus onto the most important element in the room—the STORY. Whether you are at a commercial audition, hosting, performing in a play, or starring in a movie, you need to be a professional storyteller. This class packs your metaphorical actors tool kit with skills needed to help you become the BEST storyteller YOU can be.

    In this class you will learn the importance of Energy, Clarity, Objectives, Choices, Listening, and being TRUTHFUL. Each of you will leave with a deeper understanding of these skills by welcoming you into the world of TRUTHFUL STORYTELLING.

  • Truthful Storytelling In Action Aspiring Actor, Working Actor, Teen

    SELF TAPE CLASS

    Record (and submit) yourself performing a 60 second monologue and be amazed at how slight adjustments transform your monologue into a slice of life—a glimpse into the world of the character, not just a vocalized script. People are drawn to authenticity. We will implement skills taught in Truthful Storytelling by getting you out of your own way allowing for honest connections to the piece and your audience (even if your audience is a casting director). Simply by being YOU! You demonstrated a unique talent, and now we simply focus that talent to become a vessel for characters. Who are you going to become for sixty seconds? I can’t wait to see! Previous enrollment in TRUTHFUL STORYTELLING is not required but may be suggested.
