The industry showcase combines an audition technique class with a mock audition in front of local talent agents. Actors will perform scenes in pairs and receive feedback on their work. To prepare for the showcase, John and his team will select scenes for actors based on their character types to allow performers the opportunity to showcase their talent. John’s team in Los Angeles will work hard to make sure all actors are comfortable with their scenes and prepared to succeed.

 

 

AUDITION TECHNIQUE: MASTER THE AUDITION
SATURDAY, AUGUST 1ST
ADULT:  4:00pm-7:00pm EST
YOUTH: 9:00am-12:00pm EST
NOTE: This course includes the SHOWCASE plus INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE PREPARATION TIME the week before the workshop with JOHN D’AQUINO via ZOOM.Working actors are continually working their craft from the audition to the performance. Having a strong audition technique not only increases call-backs, but sends a message that you are professional and reliable. Directors want to know that an actor can deliver under the pressures of working on set.  This course reinforces essential auditioning skills from the way you enter the room and slate to your ability to deliver commanding performances for the camera. Repetition of the audition process from script analysis, to character breakdowns, the moment before, to the unfolding moment will increase your opportunities for re-directs in the room as well as callbacks.

This Course Includes:
– How to successfully break down a script
– How to exit and enter the room confidently 
– How to create authentic characters that fit the genre of the script
– How to craft the strongest choices 
– Mastering the Slate
– Embracing the Nerves
– Incorporating John’s Magic Rectangle and Active Interrogation Technique
– Identifying Expectations, objectives and conflicts and most importantly… taking ACTION
