Led by Patti Kalles

A MUST for all levels of actors, the Weekend Bootcamp is an intensive two-day session focusing on the auditioning. Students examine their strengths and weaknesses to help improve their marketability in the industry. All aspects of the business are covered in this class.  Topics include:

  • Understanding the industry and how it works

  • Different types of auditions

  • Tips on wardrobe, makeup and photographs

  • Difference in energy between stage, commercial, TV and film

  • Creating attitudes to create characters

  • Displaying energy to the camera

  • Script breakdown and product handling

  • Finding an agent

  • Understanding unions

  • Rather than focusing on the acting process, this class teaches talent how to make use of the acting ability they already possess.

TECHNIQUES are unique to Patti's teaching process. Students view an LA casting tape to see what they are aiming for, and get an opportunity to play “clients” to help understand the process. Students receive correction as they go, working with each at their own level; therefore beginners as well as advanced actors are welcome.
