About this course

Duration

2 weeks

Term Start

Class sessions will cover three genres TV episodic,  (co-stars to guest stars and series regulars) sitcom and film. Each student will be given and selected the best material suited for them and learn the best wardrobe for your character and for on-camera auditions. You also will learn how to make the adjustments necessary for Film vs TV to help prepare you in the best light.  

Learn effective cold-reading skills for on-camera as well as an empowered perspective of the casting process and a clear understanding of what it truly means to “own your type “ and ” book the room”.

This course will cover from “the call back”  to "booking the role" to “on the set” experience and how to bring on-camera acting tools and your best creative self to the work.

Let’s say you booked the job and now you’ll need to know what to expect “on the set”. This class will open you up to bringing ideas, actions and choices to the director.

Technical tools; cheating to the camera, who to speak to, understanding marks, blocking, knowing your frame and size of a shot, and adjusting your acting accordingly, vocally and physically.

This master class will be instrumental when you book a job especially on primetime. All classes will complement the on-camera work with a focus on audition skills, marketing tools, and networking strategies to help make the transition from student to working actor.

You are the CEO of your career. Business mastery teaches the actor how to handle the business in an efficient and effective way allowing more time to be spent on the on-camera acting work and process.

Testimonials:

"I've been working with Anthony every week for over five years now, and I have no plans on quitting. I keep learning more about myself and about the craft as time goes on. As a successful working actor himself, Anthony's expertise in on-camera acting keeps me on my toes and ready to audition in NYC's competitive market. He's also well connected in the industry - one time he recommended me as a last-minute replacement for a recurring role on a new series, and I was on set 10 hours later!" Booked several Guest stars and co-stars since taking his class." Albert Chan

"I cannot recommend Anthony enough. He is an incredible teacher, but not only that he is a friend..because he truly cares about his students as individuals. Anthony works with his students at whatever level they are at and understands that each person requires a different “medicine.” I’ve seen amazing growth in my classmates and myself. With Anthony’s guidance, I booked my first co-star on a Netflix series! He just really understands the art of the audition, and of the craft." Katy Moore

“You’ll wonder where he’s been all your life. After a successfully graduating from a very competitive MFA Acting program, training with several highly sought-after teachers and coaches in NYC, and doing more than my fair share of classes, workshops, and intensives, no acting coach has ever influenced my business AND my craft like Anthony has:  He is practical and artistic, knows how to coach you in the craft and in the biz.  As a director, he’s wonderfully collaborative and insightful and intuitive AF.  He speaks the actors’ language because he IS an actor.  Look: he’s a working actor, he’s a working director, he’s out there, he’s successful, he knows what it takes and he knows how to teach it.  Highly highly highly recommend.” Leigh Ann West
