This class is very different from other classes as it cuts through all acting techniques with shortcuts to what is expected today in Hollywood. Classes include on-camera techniques, acting fundamentals using such techniques as: Uta Hagen, Alexander, Meisner, Method, Nina Foch, Bill Ball, Improvisation Styles, Lembeck, Viola Spolin, Paul Sills.
These are all great techniques for acting in Hollywood today. However, techniques are for one thing only and that is rehearsal. Once you learn them, forget them and let you and your spine let the character in...You are the techniques of trusting yourself and your choices. First choice is Right choice.
Dear Acting Students,
Several of you have enjoyed Toni Attell’s Acting class via Zoom the last two Fridays. Toni is offering a new series of six classes focusing on an Introduction to Acting for Commercials.
The class will start Friday, July 10 at 7 PM PST and go until 9:30 PM PST.
Some of the topics introduced will include:
· How to cold read commercial copy
· Taking it off the page and making it real
· How to quickly memorize
· Making decisions and breaking down commercials
· Learning how to slate
· What types of clothes to wear and how to type yourself
· Learn the many different types of commercials that are happening now as one person or several person reads
· In later sessions, work will be recorded and reviewed with the class.
Toni may offer a follow-up, multi-week Commercial course to continue the work, adding cue cards and other resources. But this first introductory series is required.
Class fee is $90 for six sessions. A great value for Toni’s students.
No late starts allowed after July 10th, since this is a short, six session course.
Please REPLY ALL to this email with any questions and confirmation that you will attend.
You may Venmo the $90 @Antoinette-Attell
