Auditioning and Acting in Front of the Camera with Carolyn Pickman-starts tonight 4/26 



Tuesdays, April 26- May 17, 2011

  RIFC, 172 Exchange St. Pawtucket

Instructor Carolyn Pickman

Guest Instructor Michael Corrente


Price:  $209

Description This course addresses the question, "How do I give an exceptional audition?"



Get the call back, book the job - or just learn to work the camera like a pro. Practice and insightful coaching are the keys to improving your ability to work with the camera, and your comfort with it.

Carolyn Pickman brings actual audition material from television commercials, corporate videos, and film scripts. Participants will be videotaped in a mock audition setting at each class. Students will review the videos and learn to prepare, and adjust their performances for the camera, take direction, and learn tricks of the trade - both in auditioning successfully, and in effectively conveying character and presence through the lens of the camera.

Carolyn walks you through auditioning step-by-step, pointing out the pitfalls to avoid and giving an insider's view on what industry pros look for. Students are welcome to repeat this course - different material is always added.
