4 Week Cold Reading Bootcamp with Blair Baker

For pre-professional and professional actors, by audition or industry invite only. In this class, Blair will challenge students with intense cold reads from current TV and Film. Students will learn how to lift the text off the page quickly, make strong choices in the moment, and bring life to a character in a truthful and believable way. From one-line co-stars to 8-page guest stars, Blair will put students in a real-world audition environment as an "actor's gym" where they will continue to grow and progress each week. All students work each week, and receive a video of their work.  Limited to 10 actors.
