This brief video will explain the Self-Taped Audition Technique Course and give you a feel for instructor Keith Flippen's teaching style. Get to know him a bit.
Our course is seven sessions long, held once a week from 7-9 PM on the day indicated. Cost is $245 for the 7 sessions payable in 1, 2, or 4 installments . Classes are limited to 8-10 participants.
This class is a 7-session intense overview of self-taped auditions that covers the foundations of your home audition from the lighting, sounds, and setting to the foundations of turning in an effective read at all role levels. The course is about 80% acting technique and stagecraft and 20% business acumen. Each week builds upon what was learned the week before. All classes are recorded and posted to a private YouTube channel so that you can rewatch them as much as you like and review the feedback and lessons. Also, because I am a working actor, there may be a need to postpone one of our sessions to the following week. In this instance, the end of our course will be bumped to a week later to ensure that you still get all 7 nights of class included in the course.
Through the learning of audition technique, Keith teaches how to build emotional and intellectual specificity into your performance, visualization of circumstances, use of frame when working on camera, using eyeline to communicate emotional intent in tight framing, along with script and character analysis.
