This teen class will run for 6 classes. Each class 45-90 minutes long. (Each class may vary, depending class size, material, etc)
We will cover teen comedy, the business of acting, fighting for objective in scenes, using thoughts, all with a focus on self-taping scenes / self-tape audition style to prepare you for the real and current world of acting. The class is very hands on; an open format with questions & answers, discussion, watching and learning from each other’s work and technique / skill building. This class will get you acting and Harrison will be on your side, but brutally honest based on his experiences acting in over 100 episodes of television, plus movies. Homework will be given each week. The goal is to add a tool into your actor’s toolkit! (Or create a toolkit if you don’t yet have one!)
