“I’m not enough.” The biggest flaw many actors possess is thinking they’re not enough. So, you’re going on an audition. There are 100 people in front of you, and 100 people behind you.  They all look like you. In your opinion they may even look better than you (after all actors are vulnerable, sensitive, and sometimes insecure.) You are all reading the exact same lines and you are all trained professionals and excellent actors. What do you have that those other 200 people don’t? Why is that a casting director is even going to remember you, let alone hire you?!  Only one thing separates you from the rest – You!

 

In this seminar, veteran acting coach and master teacher Fran Montano will teach you to drown out the noise and focus on what makes you unique. Fran notices that many actors leave out this aspect of their work, and hence are leaving their audition or performance neglecting their greatest gem – themselves! Fran’s mantra is not, “Who do I have to be to play this character?” but rather, “Who is this character because I’m playing them?”

 

Fran will demonstrate exercises, give examples, and work with attendees.  Every actor needs to bring themselves to their role. This is a great opportunity to see what you can and should add to your already wonderful talent.
