Tuesday nights I take on-camera classes with Christinna Chauncey. Last week I was given a great scene from the TV show “Bones” for a cold reading exercise. This week I returned to class with the same scene memorized for a “call back”.
After my on-camera read, Christinna gave me a couple adjustments that I might hear in the audition room. First she asked me to read the scene as “a woman who loves being a woman”. The second time she asked me to read the scene as “a damsel in distress”. Afterwards we watched the scenes in class. It was really interested to watch the 3 different takes of my scene on camera, and to hear the feedback from my classmates. I am definitely going to take that exercise with me on my auditions this week.
