Cold Reading Workshop, Level 1

January 12, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Acting for Camera, Seattle, Cold Reading

Taught by Mighty Tripod founder, David Hogan, this workshop is for Beginning-Intermediate actors who want to hone their cold reading skills and get better at auditioning. All students will get up and work in front of the camera during this workshop.*

*If you would like your work taped, please bring a Class 10 HDSC memory card to class.

Quick and smart Script Analysis is an essential skill for the actor’s tool belt. Without this skill, actors are left guessing as to how to make auditions come to life, and struggle with creating compelling characters when there is little time to prepare.

This workshop is appropriate for actors who:
> Want to learn how to perform Script Analysis
> Want to learn how to audition better
> Want to learn how to make quick and strong choices with limited prep time

Registered Students Must:
> Email me a headshot and resume.’
