Despite requests, I regretfully am unable to schedule a whole Intensive before I leave town again. However I have decided to take on a very small group of individuals for private and semi private coaching. If you’re interested do not wait! I have very little room left. #acting #oncamera #actingcoach #film #television #training #actingclassesforkids #actingclass

Back by popular demand! I am holding a special Three Class Acting Intensive! Certain elements will carry over from the Six Week Intensive like #Cold Reading, #characterdevelopment and finding Emotional Anchors but with broader strokes. A fusion of the character work, Improvisation and Cold Reads but with two exciting additions! Two of the classes will focus on entirely new genres of film and TV. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now so this will be the perfect opportunity to delve into the world of thrills and chills and a staple of the on-camera industry - Daytime Soaps!
Deadline for registration is August 21 but don’t wait! Size is extremely limited and already filling up. Register today! #acting #oncam #kids #teens #actingintensive #horrormovies #casting #actingcoach #tv #film #comedy #drama #talent #actingforkidsandteens #audition #actingclasses #coaching #soapoperas #training #newjersey #rutherfordnj #lyndhurstnj #cliftonnj #bellevillenj #njagent #njcasting #nycasting

Last year’s late Summer Semester was the most challenging Intensive by far. This video came up in my memories as a year ago today! Here are Miss Brianna Santos, Sara Rankin and Alyssa Corinno. These three young actors were so impactful - their many layers were a slow but beautiful burn. So this video is to share their commitment to the “moment” with you! Enjoy the walk down memory with me!! #acting #oncam #casting #actingcoach #talent #kidsacting #classes #training #throwbackthursday #emotional

Part of building an #acting career in the entertainment industry is having a superior work ethic. It’s not only about your performance, it’s also about how prepared you are. Casting Directors or the Director or Writer (if they’re in the room) may give you specific direction or they might just ask you for “something else.”
So have you really prepared?
Your talent can carry you through a lot but it can’t seal the deal. If they ask you for a completely different read do you have one prepared? They might even ask you for two or three choices. Have you thought those through?
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. You want to get cast, of course, but regardless of the immediate outcome, what you really want is to be remembered.
Surprise them.

You’ve Got Cmail!

So yes, we are still in the midst of a Pandemic. The TV and Film Industry is still floundering and these days most of my time is spent holed up, working on my latest script, but I have really been missing acting...
So when I opened my email to an invitation from Casting I was beyond excited!
And I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share with my students, a little of my process when preparing for an audition. So grab a coffee, get comfy and join me for some tips and tricks that will help get you off the page, out of your head and on the right track to nailing that audition!

Student of the Semester!

Tyler Koch is one of the most incredibly talented and dedicated students I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He has such a wide range of characters he can play. From the good guy who never quite gets the girl, to the kid from the wrong side of the tracks to the maniacal villain you never saw coming! Here is his final scene of our Late Summer Semester - From the movie Primal Fear.

Working with Tyler has been an absolute privilege! Obviously, he is incredibly talented, but far more than that. He is one of the most intelligent, instinctual, dedicated and professional young Actors I have ever worked with. He is prepared every single time, comes early, stays late and embraces every scene I give him with such ferocity. And perhaps my favorite quality Tyler possesses is that he checks his ego at the door; he remains humble and teachable and always strives to challenge himself. He is certainly one to look out for! #actor #talent #oncamera #studenttestimonial #actorstofollow #proudteacher

So here is Part 2 from the final class of last year’s Fall Semester. I chose material intended to help each student to venture out of the their comfort zone. As this was our last class I am making several videos to give each of these incredibly talented young actors a chance to shine. Hard to do in 60 seconds. LOL! Featured in this video are two exceptional young actresses. What impressed me the most is the level of commitment and focus. You DO NOT NEED tons of dialogue to tell a story. The expression of an emotion, the stillness, the depth of character that comes through the eyes is every bit as powerful than a bunch of words explaining “why?” So here are Miss Sara Rankin and Arianna Guerreiro. Stay tuned for Part three! #acting #oncamera #actingclass #coach #actingworkshop #lyndhurstnj #kidsacting

07/08/2020

So here is Part 1 of clips from our final class. I challenged the students with material that was intended to help them venture out of the their comfort zone. These are incredible kids. And until now, they were given material that I knew they could handle. I gave them scenes suited to their strengths. But as we all know, you MUST keep pushing yourself. Take a character very different from what you normally play and explore that. It is a very useful skill. The more facets of your life you can bring to a character, the better. Try to find the connection. You may not relate to a character, but you can understand how they got to where they are by using your own memory bank and emotional anchors. As this was our last class from our Late Summer Intensive, I am making 3 videos to give each of these actors a chance to shine. Hard to do in 60 seconds. LOL! So featured in this video are @morgan554 @jacob_stillson @arianna.guerreiro @arigdancer .
Stay tuned for Part Two! #acting #oncamera #actingclass #coach #actingworkshop #lyndhurstnj #kidsacting

BLOOPERS!

Need a laugh??? I know I sure do. Suspending in-room classes is taking a serious toll on us all. So I put this little project together in the hopes of spreading a little cheer! I present to you the first ever Blooper Reel from our Acting Intensives.
We have SO much fun in this Class that I couldn’t include all our silliness and funny outtakes or it would be a full-length movie. So more to come!
Enjoy and remember... “Laughter is the best medicine.”

Who doesn’t love a good Villain? It’s SUCH fun to play the antagonist to the Hero we all root for. But the line that separates the “Good” guys from the “Bad,” isn’t always so clear. We’re all human, we are all capable of good and bad, right and wrong and the driving force that compels us to cross that moral line is the struggle for power. This puts a different complexion on how we see the Characters we embody. Villains are usually portrayed as holding the power or stealing it and they’re desperate to keep it. Heroes too fight for power and may take extreme and sometimes morally questionable means to take it. Which is why, when developing a Character, give some real thought to this idea of the Power Play. Because the only way to achieve a fully-formed Character is to acknowledge that we are all capable of good and bad - it just depends on who holds the Power, at what cost and does it serve a purpose for the greater good. Just some insight....
But Man is it FUN to play a Villain! #acting #playingthevillain #characterdevelopment #actingtips #teenactingclasses #wearebroadwaybound

Wanna a sixty second break from #allcoronaallthetime ???
Here’s a sizzle reel of Highlights from last Summer’s Acting Intensive. This class dealt a lot with pacing. Making a deliberate selection of an effective tempo for your character and the scene. We had some fun with this one! ENJOY!

So I coach kids, teens, young adults to “act.” I really hate that word lol. In any case, our On-Camera Acting Intensives are focused on film and television and so I am happy to share this news with them. I am so honored to be a part of this! @reelwomensnetwork just launched. This is an amazing platform for female filmmakers to share their work, to celebrate the unique voice, eye, and nature that female filmmakers bring to their work. And two of the films I wrote, produced and starred in are on the site. The Mourning Hour and Conversations With Lucifer! I am SO GRATEFUL to be a Spotlight Filmmaker for this important event!
The Art of Cinema has the unique power to stir the soul, challenge the mind, dare you to change, and to unify us all by reminding us of what it means to be human. I believe this is coming at the perfect time! We NEED to be creating right now. We NEED to continue writing OUR stories, Directing OUR stories, because they are rich indeed and only WE can tell them. So check us out @reelwomensnetwork It’s like Hulu for Women, 😉 Subscribe! #reelwomensnetwork #futureisfemale #femalefilmmakers #streaming #subscribe #brandonbarash #robertknepper #shevaunkastl
