Audition Technique with Gina Laline

6, 13, 20 & 27 September

There is an art to audition.
What is cold reading? How do I prepare for an audition straight away?
How do I personalise the text and connect with the camera or director?

You will be given few script sides and our director Gina Laline will guide you throughout the process.
This course will focus on how "not to act" so that your action is as honest and real as possible. A spontaneous performance, with strong feelings, real emotions, and true thoughts. Gina will guide you to reach your artistic objectives. To achieve this, we will follow a thorough process by analysing the scene to the deepest point. You will discover the tools for the perfect development of your work. If you wish to pursue an honest performance you need to be honest.

Like in life, pretending to be something is always the opposite of the truth.
