COMING IN APRIL!
INTERMEDIATE HABER FILM/TV AUDITION INTENSIVE!
6:30-10:30PM, MONDAYS & WEDNESDAYS, APRIL 5-28
with DELLA COLE
This Intensive course is designed for trained actors who have some audition experience.
As professional actors, we often audition and work on projects that don’t necessarily challenge the full spectrum of our talents. You may be comfortable with industrials, commercials, and voice-over but fall apart when you audition for a film. With the increase of film and television in production in Georgia, now more than ever, Atlanta talent needs to be ready for Hollywood auditions.
In this Intermediate Intensive, actors work with film and television scripts, learning how to nail the audition in a limited amount of time. The focus is on the nuts and bolts of breaking down a scene, including relationship, intention, history, opening and closing beats, core and masking. Using the skills you learn will greatly improve your audition skills. This valuable cold-reading technique works.
D E T A I L S
8 classes – April 5 – 28
6:30-10:30PM, Mondays & Wednesdays, April 5th, 7th, 12th, 14th, 19th, 21st, 26th, and 28th
$350 (may be paid in 2 installments of $175)
Required: On-Camera Acting II, working actor, agent representation, or Instructor approval
Katie Cofield wrote about the last Intermediate Intensive, which Della taught:
Of all the wonderful things I learned in this class, the most important, seemingly obvious, trick was. . . how to hold the page! It’s such a wonderful image, thinking of bridging the gap between yourself and the other person in the conversation using the page!
I thoroughly enjoyed Della’s comments on our work. So many teachers give you “That was nice” or “That could have been better”. And that’s not helpful. Della’s specificity of critique is great and so constructive!
The creating of the relationship and remembering that it’s the most important thing really works for me, and it was so much more fun to act when I was really connected to the other person in the scene. It made everything fall into place and forced me into just relating honestly at all moments. It made all of my creation of history actually mean something, and made my need in the scene even more important when I was fully locked in to the relationship.
I really liked it when the class doubled up and we had two classes a week. I felt like more was sinking in each class because we had the opportunity to practice with greater frequency in a shorter amount of time.
This class was SUCH a gift! I had several auditions during the weeks of class, and I could tell such a difference- my confidence that I really knew what to do had skyrocketed! For me, it was also such a relief to remember to trust myself and just play. Thank you!!!
