Some of the Topics Covered:
How to overcome Audition anxiety/nerves
On camera Auditioning for film & television
The number one thing a Casting Director is looking for
Do you get so uptight or tense before and audition that you can't think straight?
Are you not trusting yourself, scared/worried that you might forget your lines?
Do you become so tense to perform your scene because you worry about embarrassing yourself?
Do you care too much about the approval or validation of the casting director?
IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THAT WAY.
MANY ACTORS EXPERIENCE FEELINGS OF AUDITION ANXIETY. AUDITION ANXIETY IS THE NUMBER ONE OBSTACLE TO A RELAXED, EFFORTLESS, CONFIDENT READ, A QUALITY THAT YOU MUST HAVE TO LOCK IN ON YOUR READER AND ENTER THE FUN ZONE!
Yes it is possible and I will show you in this one day master intensive how you can have this.
Let's work together on implementing and applying a powerful pre-game mental strategy, so you can affect the reader, causing them to have an experience and allowing your truth to play full out, unapologetically. In one day, you can have total clarity and relief on how to overcome the mental game that is stopping you from booking the room every time.
The Mental blueprint: A SOLID UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO WIN THE MENTAL GAME OF AUDITIONING AND BOOK THE JOB AND THE ROOM. Herman bases his teachings on, psychology, sports psychology and years of experience and interviews with top actors, casting directors and directors, as well as his own personal experience out in the trenches.
Script Analysis: HOW TO ATTACK TV & FILM SCRIPT LIKE A STREET FIGHTER. WE GO FOR THE JUGULAR. THERE'S NO TIME TO INDULGE IN WEEKS OF SCRIPT BREAKDOWN. LEARN THE FAST, LASER SHARP WAY THE PROS DO IT.
YOU WILL EXECUTE YOUR CHOICES WITHOUT DOUB for your Mock Audition, scenes will be provided - every actor works.
A FREE HANDOUT OF "THE GAME BOOK", which covers even more in depth what you will learn on this day. No need to take notes in this class. We give them to you to take home so you can focus.
Hear from the Casting Director's and Director's mouth what their pet peeves are, and what they REALLY want from you in the room. Pre-recorded audio.
Q: How is this different from other Audition Classes?
A: We are being respectful of your time and money, so we address only the indispensable, primary needs that you must have out in the real world when you are auditioning for film and TV. There is NO FLUFF in this Master Class. We hit hard, pull down the barriers and show you how to:
Own every audition in your own way
Understand and own what is applicable in a real world situation
Arrive with the correct mindset to approach an audition like a street fight - your life is on the line and you are there to AFFECT THE READER.
Learn how to quickly assess your sides and make choices. NO overthinking/must get out of your head
Learn how to EXECUTE that assessment
NO FILLERS, NO FLUFF
The Class will watch a video that shows how fear affects performance in any field AND how it is the origin of giving a Bad Audition - Auditions are 90% mental!
Applying what we get from The Manual and video, we will transition to the reader/actor contact exercise. It's not enough to just understand all of this intellectually. We must get on our feet and experience - simulate - the bodily sensations, nerves, breathing, avoidance, etc that come up when you are in front of the casting director, or reader. This is called AFFECTING THE READER - your only job. THIS work is where you really begin to see your own true potential as an auditioning actor. Your RAW God-given talent starts to shows up, Because an actor's best work is only expressed when he or she believes they are safe in the room, while connected to the reader.
BONUS: Hear prerecorded audio comments from casting directors regarding not only the business, but their "pet peeves" with actors.
