By popular demand, we are bringing back the cold reading boot camp class. The class empowers artists to develop a killer cold reading process by introducing a proprietary and revolutionary new approach to auditioning, by demystifying their relationship to the camera and by helping to change their attitudes and expectations.
Sometimes, great actors walk into those rooms and fail to deliver the potential of their talent. Some choice is not fully committed to. Some idea that flashed across our minds like a brief and fleeting beam of light was ignored. Some “note”, be it solicited or not, sits at the forefront of our consciousness and has become the filter through which our impulses flow. Few people enter a room expecting to win; most people enter a room trying not to lose. Their attention revolves around trying to avoid mistakes rather than delivering what their intentions and choices are. This class is about changing attitudes and routines that lead people to the same disastrous results.
The desire of the RLS is to create a game that will be fun to play because we are as prepared as we need to be, to play it successfully. Understanding, of course, that “successful” is relative to process and not result. (Definition of Relative: Dependent on or interconnected with something else; not absolute.)
The purpose of this class is to help the actor:
- Demystify the cold reading process
- Prove that you are enough
- Prove that you’re a genius until proven otherwise
- Prove that you can make quick decisions
- Honor your first thought with good-humored inflexibility
- Use the condensed SubTees process
- Build confidence and certainty
It is a 2-day intensive.
