This two-day workshop combines perspective and feedback from a Los Angeles Agent (DDO Talent) and Atlanta Casting Director (arvold) paired with in-depth training from two of Catapult Acting Studios’ coaches. This workshop was designed to help actors maximize their potential with regarding to training, marketing materials, and educating themselves on how to succeed in the upcoming episodic season. Actors will spend the first day preparing scenes with two of Catapult’s most sought-after coaches. Participants will execute their scenes in front of our industry pros on on the second day, followed by feedback and a Q&A.
The AUDITION GAUNTLET is a three day intensive focused on challenging the actor in ways he/she hasn’t been challenged before. The first two days will be 7 hours of focused script work, dedicated to improving audition prep, script analysis, and character breakdown. On the third day, each actor will rotate between three rooms here at Catapult, executing their scenes back to back to back for a Top Agent (in person), Top Casting Director (in person), and Top LA Pro (via Skype.) Most actors prep their scene, go in the room, and audition once. Actors never execute their scenes three times in a row… Until now.
Learn the keys to own the audition room and consistently deliver great work. Utilizing Erik’s unique methods and his psychological approach to the craft of acting, actors will dive deep into the art of auditioning for the camera. Working with scripts from TV/Film, actors will apply Erik’s methods of letting go, owning the moment, connecting, and creating a winning mindset all while implementing choices unique to each actor.
Some might look at these types of shows and think that the actors are “over the top” or “fake”. However, there is a level of authenticity and energy that actors must have in order to bring the characters of these shows to life. It is through this concept that Erik will deliver the tools and techniques needed to achieve success in this style of comedy.
Specifically designed for the more advanced actor, this class will dive much deeper into scene study, camera awareness and character development. Most actors pretend to be a character. The goal of this 4 hour intensive is to teach actors that there is no pretending in acting. To really bring a character to life, you must come from a place of truth.
