Truth, I have a question about Warhit too. How often do u do a new scene and do u have to be off book?
What if you aren't ready to do the showcase thing at the end of the 4rth week? I am in no shape to show anything to directors.
Week 1: cold read a scene, off camera reader, audition style
Week 2: new scene, same deal as week 1
Week 3: scene with a partner, for sure be off book if you're presenting it week 4
Week 4: showcase either week 1,2, or 3. Off book for week 3. You can hold your sides if you do week 1 or 2. I think it's better if you are off book.
Hi Truthteller-unfortunately RJ Adams in OC does not teach anyone under 16 and I have a 7 yr. She's been wanting to get into acting for a while now and want to be able to give her any "edge" possible by going to acting classes.
For that young, I don't think she needs classes. Kids are the best because they know how to use their imagination and don't give a crap.
Right, but acting classes help them even more.
At age 7?!
Actually an improv class would be appropriate. Second City has a kids program.
But a script analysis or some heavy technical class? NOPE! Meisner, Adler, Strasberg, etc. are for adults who have forgotten how to use their imagination.
Not just improv, teachers such as Lisa Picotte teach also cold reading and scene study for children as young as 5. I know not the heavy stuff though.
Do you guys take a break from your scene study/technique classes when taking an auditioning classes?
Has anyone taken them at the same time?
Seems like it would be hard to get the lines down for two scenes at the same time... plus audition classes are usually a new scene each time...
I normally take time off of a scene study class for an audition class.
Thanks for the awesome information Truthteller / stumbleine. So real quick question, what kind of class should i take first as a beginner? improv / commercial / Auditioning / or Scene Study? or should i be taking some of the classes concurrently?
I've only done 2 small gigs as a non-speaking extra in my mid 20s. I'm about to turn 30, and I want to start taking acting more seriously and learn the craft. Thanks for the advice!
Cool. will check out imrov classes! thanks =)
What about improv in OC, any good schools?
LA or nothing.
A sincere thank you to you Stumbeline and TruthTeller59 for always being so open and passionate about giving your honest and unfiltered response. I wish you both great success.
