After navigating their website for a while, I couldn't find their Saturday class option anywhere. Did you hear about that class from them or something?
Megan and Chuck have two sites-a real one and an outdated one.
Here's the real deal:
Truth, do you recommend Megan & Chuck's Intensive in addition to HISYC and Killian's class or in lieu of?
If you're new or just don't know jack about the business side of acting, then at least level one of Mike's (HISYC) class is a great place to start.
After that, Megan or Killian. Or if you can afford it, both.
If you want to be a better actor overall, Megan's class is great for BOTH theatrical and commercial. Killian gives you a more simulated audition experience.
I was looking over the HISYC website and noticed a home-study course(DVD/CD) being sold by Mike Pointer. Is this a sound investment in learning some of his techniques(since I am not in LA)?
Is there much commercial work in Virginia?
I've never seen any of it and don't know anyone who has gotten it.
While you're still in VA, you can:
1.Find the paragraphs that are in ads of magazines or anything in general books, scripts, etc. and practice cold reading into a camera.
2. Take a lot of improv classes
I LOVE Mike Pointer at Hey! I saw your commercial. He is definitely not everyone's cup of tea, and since he doesn't require an audition, the beginning class is full of stupid people who don't know anything/take anything seriously... BUT... if you can get past that, DO IT. I got called in by both BBR and Clear Talent from his showcase. Also, more people look at my resume because of his class. I had a lot of fun there.
Thank you, TT. I was hoping you'd chime in. Being away from major markets is certainly hard but seeing that a "course" was available with HISYC seemed interesting. I was inquiring because I figured it might help me when I eventually move to LA or NY.
No, not many commercials are filmed in Virginia. You have your typical state lottery, maybe a local car dealership, etc. but nothing of substance.
Thank you for the pointers on practicing into the camera. It means a lot!
Killian McHugh on Conan!
*sidenote: it took me 5 or 6 tries to just get through this thread! Holy pop-up ads Backstage! WTF
Too funny. Conan is a big guy and everything but I still kept waiting for Killan to say, "Don't make me hit you!" haha
I saw it earlier today. Pretty funny stuff. lol.
I took Killian's workshop last year and booked two national commercials within 3 months after taking it. Now, the "Hey I Saw Your Commercial!" guy. I think it his name is Mike....who a total....oh never mind. Wouldn't waste my time with him. Just too 'icky' for my taste....
