Accessing uninhibited emotional engagement is the actor’s constant challenge.  In this one-day workshop, you will explore the latest screen performance techniques and focus on breaking free from your emotional blocks, trusting yourself and your work, overcoming inhibition, and repeatedly accessing powerful and energetic emotion.

From attending this workshop, you will takeaway a better understanding of how the industry works in LA, particularly during the busy pilot season, which can be an overwhelming experience to those unaware and under prepared.

You will explore connection, tools for relaxation and script interpretation and well as learn what LA Casting Directors look for in self-­test auditions, what to do to increase your odds in an audition, and how to move your career forward.

This will be a lecture-style masterclass with 12 selected participants working closely with Ms Wallace before an audience of auditor/observers.

These 12 participants range from emerging to highly experienced.

Auditors will be able to participate in various exercises and techniques as well as observe and learn from the lecture.
