Presented by: Vincent Pastore –
You’ve worked hard to develop your acting technique—now what do you need to know in order to take on the business? Your job is to hone the materials you use to present yourself—your photos and resume—then build a network of real relationships. When you make a new contact, when you audition or interview for a role, you may have just a few brief moments to show who you are and what you can do. You must have effective monologues prepared, be ready and able to improvise, be able to take a script apart and make it your own. You must be fully prepared to make an impression when your opportunity comes, however it comes. It’s up to you to convince the people at the table that you will solve their casting problem. Once you have the role, you must be able to bring the character on the page to life, walking and talking. No matter what the circumstances, you need to be able to claim your place in the room and to make the role your own.
FOR THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS: Please prepare a 3-minute contemporary monologue to present.
