In this class, Amy Gossels will touch on many of the critical things actors can do to vastly improve their on-camera auditions. The class will consist of a talk, during which Amy will share her innovative approach to commercial copy and game changing cold-read technique, followed by audition coaching with each actor and wrap up with a Q&A. While actors will be working with commercial copy at this particular class, Amy’s approach and technique can be applied to elevate ALL on-camera auditions.
Copy will be sent with a ZOOM Invitation the morning of the class. Copy should NOT be memorized.
