This on-camera intensive will teach professional actors how to organically prepare for film and television auditions within a short time-frame.  Actors receive new sides prior to each class and work daily.   "Auditioning by Heart" is a deep exploration of how to create a character's life from the truth through history homework.  It is practical, not theoretical, and aims to equip you with all the skills and expertise you need to become dynamic and courageous at your auditions. The training is very much student-centered, giving time for individual attention. Crystal will provide thorough, personalized critiques for actor's who register to be critiqued.

This workshop will empower you to:

  • Rid Nerves
  • Know Your Lines “by Heart”
  • Live Truthfully Through the Life of the Character
  • Highlight Your Acting Abilities
  • Improve Booking Rates

Join this 3-day intensive (all day) workshop - 

All actors, critiqued and non-critiqued, will receive audition material and will be put on tape. As a non-critiqued actor, if you choose not to have your audition put on tape, then you may be a reader for those who do. (Actors can learn a lot about auditioning when they sit on the other side of the camera.) 12 actors tapes will be watched and critiqued during class. Their tapes will be used to demonstrate, as clear examples, Crystal's lessons, script analysis, and character breakdowns.

2 ways to play Auditioning by Heart!

1) CRITIQUED ACTOR:  Your work critiqued in front of the class, (your resume will be requested after you register) Limited to 12 actors.

2) NON CRITIQUED ACTOR: you can choose to self-critique (please read about this after the bullet point below) and/or you can choose to be critiqued outside of class.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?  The Critiqued Actor is put on tape by Crystal, and the Critique is given by her in front of the class, so that your work can be used as a lesson to help the rest of the group. (There are only 12 critiqued spots available) 

A Non-Critiqued Actor is either put on tape by a T.A. or partnered with a Non-Critiqued actor.  If you are partnered with another N.C. actor, you put each other on tape before class each day. Everyone watch that days lecture / script analysis / breakdown done by Crystal in front of class. You will watch the 12 actors receive their critiques from Crystal.

AFTER CLASS,  you watch your audition from earlier, so that you can "self critique" based on Crystal's breakdown and the other actors critiques.  You will more than likely KNOW EXACTLY how you did, (which of your choices were strong, and which could have been better thought out).

If you still want Crystal to critique your audition , she is available to do so at a later date for a small fee.   ($40)  (Use dropdown menu below to add additional critiques outside of class time)

* Minimum Age 18 yrs (Certain exceptions apply)

The Safety Net Under Your Audition

Ever go into an audition thinking you have your lines memorized only to get nervous and mess-up?  Memorization can lock you into a stale delivery or make you even more flustered if you accidentally forget a line.  Thought Support Technique is a one-day workshop that will teach you how to use your sides in an audition while staying in character so you don't have to depend on memorization.  Learn your lines "by heart" - not by rote.  

Focus your preparation by:

  • Deepening your connection to the other character
  • Listening and being present
  • Fighting for your objective
  • Responding truthfully in the moment

Limited to 12 actors.  

This class is the PERFECT lead-in to Auditioning by Heart! Actors get more out of the 3-day intensive when they take the Thought Support Workshop with it.

A TESTIMONY - Actor: Frank Carrijo

I just finished taking Thought Support class and I finally "get it", not just rationally, but I really FEEL what it means to be in the moment in a whole new, unforgettable, usable, effortless way.

After you understand the rules & technicalities, you will notice that your body and mind will automatically start to respond to the other person. You'll start to have emotions hit and change you. You'll GENERATE THOUGHTS, then look at the other person and say them. You'll really get that the script gives you WHAT to say, but taking in the other person, gives you HOW to say it -- no "pre-shaping".

Even though I am not really thinking up the lines, because the writers has already done that, I feel like I am. Thought Support has helped ME, be more of a REAL human being when auditioning and anytime I'm acting.  

It also is the perfect prerequisite to Auditioning by Heart! It supports you, so you can feel safe doing what Crystal is asking of you. I hope you take Thought Support and see for yourself. 

Actor: Frank Carrijo
