Conferences, Speaking Engaements and Workshops

The Arts Conference at CFNI went great.  Now we look ahead.  I'll be speaking in Dallas at a PROAct actors meeting on August 16.  THen we'll be doing the seminar on August 21-22, two weeks from today.

It's time for me to get focused on that a little more.  I'll be creating email flyers for the event and sending them out through local talent agencies.  IN the past, we've gotten great response for this seminar.

The plan is for a half day seminar on acting, totally from a director's pov.  I talk about what we look for in audition and on the set.  I talk about the things we praise you for in post and the things you did we curse in post, then cut you out.  Armed with this knowledge, I think you can have a better chance of surviving the cut.

On Sunday, we're going to have an all day workshop on Auditioning.  But instead of only giving you the do's and don'ts, I'm going to take you to the other side of the table. Everyone will audition, but also everyone will rotate through to Reader, Producer and so forth.  I we'll discuss the audition we just saw and you'll see what we talk about.  Again, armed with this knowledge, you can have a much better shot of landing the role.

FOr the seminar alone on Saturday, it's only $29 and you can pick morning or afternoon.  If you want to do the workshop, it's $150, limited to the first 12, and includes attending the seminar the day before.
