Cold Read

The Achilles heel of most actors. An ample amount of preparation time is a luxury that leads to comfortability and comfortability leads to great value. But that ample amount of time is not a realistic situation in the industry. What happens when your 3 days of normal prep time is cut to a few hours? What about a few minutes? To be a working actor in the industry, one must be able to breath life into their character and scene, regardless of how long they have to prepare. This course focuses on equipping actors with strong cold read value. Each week, students will receive a scene and will have a certain amount of time to prepare. After the cold read technique is taught, students will be put to the test with performances. Their prep time will be shortened weekly, until students are able to bring great value with only 5-10 minutes of preparation.
