and be attentive to the person you are talking to directly.

The physical presence you bring to the role.

The physical task you bring to the moment.

Your entrance into the room – walk tall, listen to

instructions from the casting director or director.

Talk about who you are – what you consider are your

best qualities, speak with self confidence, pride and respect

for both yourself and the person in charge.

TUESDAY EVENING  6.00pm till 9.30pm

Cold reading and Audition Night

Understanding logic of the script – what is the script saying to you.

Identify it's meaning, and how you relate to the script and the role.

Simplify your choices, and stick to them. – keep it simple

and play it straight, avoid distractions, and focus on your choices.

The 4 most important steps to identify and remember are:

1. What is it I want? Start off with 'I want something'

make it what you want.

2. What is the purpose of my role? – to convince, to seduce etc.

3. What is the most challenging part of the scene?

and what makes it so. Who's against me? What's against me?

4. Understanding beats and changes and how they might

possibly obscure my objectives.

WEDNESDAY EVENING 6.00pm till 9.30pm

Invite only - Shooting episodes from film and TV

Step One – script will be given to actors for following week.

A director will be assigned to that group with me involved in the process.

First week will be concentrating on character work – physicality and

detail of the character, props, clothing, and relationship to the role.

Blocking the scenes with details from learning to do close ups to mid shots to wide shots.

Week shoot, script and feedback from director with real breakdowns from what worked to what didn't work and then from myself and listen to criticism without being defensive.
