Part-Time Audition

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Our Auditioning for Film & Television classes aim to equip students with the tools they need to be successful in any number of auditioning situations. Whether in-person with Casting Directors, Producers and/or Directors, or through the taped submission process, actors need to maximize their effectiveness with every audition opportunity. This includes learning skills specific to on-camera auditioning and implementing these techniques to be successful in the room. Text analysis, character creation, emotional connection, and technical acting-for-camera skill development…at Vancouver Acting School, we want to ensure you are comfortable with every aspect when you get that big audition! Students will prepare and present scenes on camera each night in a simulated audition process, receiving personalized feedback and support.

“Daniel Bacon brings a relaxed and refreshing approach to the art of
auditioning. His calm demeanour and his years of experience on set and as a
reader, help to simplify the audition process and “demystify” the room. I
find all of my clients who have trained with him are grounded with a clear
vision and have strong, interesting choices.”

Current Session:
April 12th – June 28th – SOLD OUT

Upcoming Sessions:
January 2023 – Dates TBA
Tuesday Evenings – 6:00pm – 9:00pm with Johannah Newmarch 

Cost:
3 EQUAL INSTALMENTS of $219.99

Course Description:
Much like going to the gym once a week is the minimum one must do to not lose basic fitness, in my personal professional experience, auditioning once a week is essential to staying primed and “room” ready. Consistently simulating the “hot seat” of the audition room with challenging auditions, done in the safe space of a nurturing class, will markedly improve your confidence and focus in real world auditions. Or take your already strong audition game to the next level by tackling more demanding meatier leading roles. Come work, come play! I’d love to support you in deepening your ownership of “the room” whatever that means for you.

Topics Covered:
In this class you will learn and implement:

  • Being present: Genuinely connecting with and listening to your reader.
  • Stillness: Smoothing out our physical tics so we are calm and watchable on camera.
  • Blocking an audition: using simple clear movements and eyelines to most effectively bring an audition to life.
  • Bringing consistency and discipline to your script analysis. (The thing most actors tend to be weakest at.)
  • Begin the life long task of creating a working relationship with your inner critic.

I can’t begin to express how much Johannah has done for my acting career since I started studying under her. On a professional level she has helped me open myself up to my own reality, which has allowed me to really reach new heights in how I express myself and relate to the characters that I am playing. For me, as for many actors, it started with taking down so many walls and barriers that inhibited me from being able to be free as a performer. Every single time I step out of her class I felt like I am a better actor than before I walked in. On a personal level, Johannah has always been available to share her vast experience in the industry which has given me so much direction and understanding as to where my career is heading and why. In my opinion there are teachers, and then there are mentors. This city has many acting teachers, but actors will have an extremely difficult time finding a mentor that is not only a passionate and excellent instructor, but cares so deeply about her students and their careers. We are all very fortunate to study under Johannah and I personally owe all of my early success in this industry to what she has taught me.

–  Jayce Barreiro (Actor)
