I signed up for an 8 week On-Camera Intensive with Christinna Chauncey and tonight was the first class. I met Christinna at The Actor’s Bootcamp last year, and have been interested to take her class ever since.
For the next 4 weeks my classmates and I will be working on Cold Reading scenes from 1/2 comedies and 1 hour dramas. The last 4 weeks are devoted to “The Pilot and Preparing to Test for The Network”.
Tonight’s topic: Cold-Reading and “Commanding the Audition”. For the first cold reading exercise, we were each given a co-star role in a 1 hour drama. I was given a great scene from “CSI”. After the c0ld read exercise, it was time to watch the tape. It was eye-opening!
Christinna had a lot of sweet things to say about my performance and look on camera. I am going to enjoy honing my skills for the camera over the next 7 weeks!
