Each virtual on-camera class 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. There are 2 series; each 6 classes in length. Sign up one-at-a-time or sign up for a 6-class series.

"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. 

This online class 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

Each of the 2 Masterclasses contains 6 classes with 6 lectures (around 2 hours each). For each lecture, actors will receive NEW audition material to put on tape.  Crystal will provide a complete script analysis and character breakdown for each genre of material you are given to work on. 

The virtual participant will watch as between 10 and 12 actors from the LA Masterclasses have their tapes critiqued during the original LIVE class. Their tapes will be used to demonstrate clear examples of Crystal's lecture. (Actors participating in the virtual masterclass, you also have the option to have your tapes critiqued by Crystal over Skype at the cost of $40 per audition tape*).

This comprehensive course tackles the most common genres in film and television through a total of 12 lessons that prepare an actor for any possible audition they may receive in pilot season, or anytime really. Gain the knowledge to make strong choices and avoid the pitfalls in each.
