Auditioning By Heart

3-Day Intensive

17, 18, 19 MAY 2017

Location: The Lab  (Dublin, Ireland)

Limited to 12 Critiqued Actors and 15 Non-Critiqued Actors 

WEDNESDAY 10:00am - 5:00pm

THURSDAY  &  FRIDAY 10:00am - 5:00pm

(Nightly homework)

This on-camera classes 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 "Critiqued Actors" are put on tape 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 each actor's performance daily.

This workshop will empower you to:

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

 

CRITIQUED ACTOR

All students will be given material (homework / sides) to prepare each night as if they were going to audition.  Students who sign up to be critiqued by Crystal and will be put on tape by Crystal each day of the workshop.  

 Critiqued students will have their work played back and critiqued in front of the rest of the class, while being used to demonstrate Crystal's lessons.  

All students will learn from Crystal's lectures.

NON - CRITIQUED ACTOR

Non-critiqued students will have an eye-opening experience as they come to truly understand what it feels like to be on "the other side of the table" and will discover what works and what can be improved upon from an outside perspective so they can effectively apply Crystal's technique in their own work outside of class.  

An Non-Critiquedparticipant in the class, receives all the same materials, training and homework but is not put on tape by Crystal! They either self tape, or are put on tape by a fellow Non-Critiqued participant.  

To get the most out of the class, as an Non-Critiqued participant, DO you homework each night! Tape yourself doing the audition in the morning before you come to class.  Have a family member, friend or roommate tape you and be your reader, have a friend spend the night and tape you in the morning.  Record a Skype session with a friend if they don’t want to come over to tape you.  In some classes you will be assigned a Non-Critiqued partner that you will work with all 3 days to tape. 

After each days class, watch your work when you get home, before beginning work on the next days homework. 

This will help you ascertain “how you did” as you apply my script analysis / breakdown, and the comments you hear Crystal give in class, to your own work.  I promise you, it will be “Crystal Clear.”

* Minimum Age 13 yrs 

..... Including Thought Support Workshop

This 5 hour class exercise is famous for allowing actors to truly tap into what it means to "listen", "come from the truth", and "be in the moment".  When taken before the Auditioning by Heart three-day workshop, both experiences are enhanced. Thought Support will teach you how to use your sides in an audition while staying in character so you don't have to depend on memorization.  This allows you to 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

Every time you say something, you want to impact the other person in some way or form. No one talks for just the sake of talking, the words that we say out loud are a result of the thoughts and feelings we generated silently.
