[PART 1 Class] Film/TV Acting & Auditioning +

SEPTEMBER 2019 | Find ease acting on camera in a safe and small class.

Summary

With so many classes and network events out there, I frequently see how easily confused actors get about their marketability, skills, and belief in their talent. My passion lies in supporting actors as you navigate through the information and the “truths” being presented to you about yourself and the business. This is a safe class to explore your marketability and camera skills. 8 slots max per class. Ages (18-100) and all levels of experiences (newbies to award-winning veterans). [Teacher: Heidi]

Class Size: limited to 8

“Your class was instrumental in helping me develop the techniques that allowed me to go into that audition room 4 different times and finally land the role of Richie” – Raul Castillo, HBO Series Looking

“You gave me the mind-set that allowed me to hold to the points I needed and ignore the ones I did not need.  I was, I guess we can assume, successful.” – Gary Simpson, CINEMAX The Knick

In Part 2, expect to dig deeper and forcibly knock down your personal obstacles on camera. The camera reveals everything, as you know. Let’s go for it and get honest. Now that I know you and we speak the same language, let’s reveal where you are stuck, where you are inspired, and what ultimately causes you to book the job. Learn to reinforce who you already are naturally. Your acting choices can inspire everyone around you and give them confidence to hire you. [Teacher: Heidi]

[Private Coaching + Self-Tapes] Auditions & Role Prep +

ONGOING | Private Coaching for audition and performance preparation. **OPEN TO ALL**

Summary

After watching as Casting Director over 40,000 auditions for RENT alone, and countless other theater, film, TV, commercial auditions… I have some fast adjustments and support to offer.

Carly has had a great impact on how I prep for a scene. What I’ll do differently is….follow Carly’s guide! She gave us so many tools and revealed her exact process in how she preps for every character/audition. Following them really helps me understand the character, even more than I realize.

It was beautiful, challenging and a safe environment! I feel more self-trust! Thank you, Carly and Heidi, for keeping the actor’s life meaningful!

What a powerful well needed experience with Fiona. It has changed me. That class allowed me such personal access in such a transformative way that all that release and emotional energy was channeled into creativity.

I am committed to slowing. down. and telling the story instead of pursuing relentless pace. – Nancy Stone

I shifted the way I look at auditions now…. before this intensive I though there was one right way to do the scene and if I didn’t do that in the room I am not going to book it… But having fun and being playful in the room is way more interesting then trying to do something perfect. – Kathleen Kenny

[BRING HEIDI TO YOU] Workshops + Panels +

ONGOING | Give skills and confidence to your school or community.

Summary

Guest Teaching classes are specially designed for each group: Graduate, Undergraduate, and Group Workshops. Being a working actor is beyond just having talent and being in the right place at the right time. Competition is too high. I believe that actors who are armed with knowledge about the business, skills to prep audition material, and have tons of audition practice will strengthen their confidence and actually help them book jobs.

“It was a pleasure having you visit once again The New School for Drama – the students responded so well to your enthusiasm, advice, and expertise! They seem to be re-energized and ready to move forward, and are still talking about the sessions!”

Bob Hoyt, New School, Director of Professional Development M.F.A.

 

Many of your notes and suggestions from my film audition (in addition to many of your other business tools and assets) have been on my mind: See the road. Hail the cab. Share the emotional transformation with the camera/audience. Ask questions. Greet the room and slate with personality…”

Erika Lee, MFA
