WHAT IS THE AUDITION GAUNTLET?

AUDITION GAUNTLET is a three-day intensive providing actors with in-depth training and the opportunity to “audition” for three different industry pros…back to back to back! The first day features a mindset and performance discussion with Catapult coaches Dexter Masland and Arhley Brazoban. Day Two will consist of focused script work, character development, and audition preparation. On Day Three, each actor will rotate between three rooms, executing their scenes for a Top ATL Agent, Top ATL Pro, and Top LA Pro.

For this workshop, actors will need to prepare a 1.5-2 page script, preferably with only two characters, that best showcases your acting ability. We will include a link to our scene database in the confirmation email. It is important to note that if you select a scene with more than two pages to please make the necessary edits to cut it down to the appropriate length. We also advise scenes with minimal-to-no graphic content and language. The goal should be to find a scene that not only highlights your type and talent, but also excites you to make bold, fun choices!

THIS THREE DAY WORKSHOP WILL COVER

– Memorization Techniques
– What do agents look for?
– What do casting directors look for?
– Keys to “owning the room”
– How to let go!
– Embrace your authenticity
– Create a winning mindset
– Craft a compelling character

Arhley Brazoban

INSTRUCTOR

Having lived in various different states all over the country, experience is something Arhley has been able to accumulate plenty of. Originally an east-coaster born in New York and raised in New Jersey, the arts has always surrounded Arhley. It only took 3 years until he found the passion for acting and after his first role on stage he has studied and pursued the craft with great enthusiasm. Said passion has led him to study and graduate from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, and participate in projects from New York, to Los Angeles, to now here in Atlanta, Georgia. Since arriving in Georgia mid last year, he has appeared in 5 different commercials for brands such as Geico, Smart Water, and Popeyes.
