DAY ONE: 
TACKLING THE SCENE: 
 HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR CHARACTER AND MAKE STRONG CHOICES FOR YOUR AUDITIONS

Have you ever wanted to just be able to cut loose and be completely carefree in your acting?  Matt will work to find a way to break down walls so you can get to the next level of your acting.  You will do improv, character building and very fun techniques that will help find your inner rhythm and character.  Matt will teach Uta Hagen’s 6 steps to helping develop your character.

If you want to then apply what you learned on day one, then come back for day two!  Scenes will be taped and then played back so you can see yourself audition.  Matt will give extensive feedback as to what is working and what isn’t.  

If you are here for the second day, Matt will give you a scene at the end of day one that you can take home to work on.  This a great way to be in front of him TWICE and really show what you can do!

DAY TWO:
  APPLICATION: PUTING YOUR NEWLY LEARNED APPROACH IN ACTION

Taking all you learned on day one and applying it to the scene given to you the day before.  Matt will delve into the scene work and specifically address things the actor has applied and executed as well as what they still need to work on. Playback will help the actor visually see what they have indeed applied and what still needs to be addressed.  Actors unable to attend the Saturday workshop may still attend Sunday and Matt will work on a scene the actor has prepared and give feedback as well.

*All scene work and feedback can be taped for a fee of $20 payable that day.  The session will then be emailed within 24 hours for personal review.
