What Does The "Complete Audition Technique" Cover?

  • All work is on-camera - learn from your playbacks
  • Fast efficient script analysis
  • Allow your personality to inhabit the character
  • Understand how the camera sees you - employ the subtleties of body language
  • Control the casting with confidence - what you convey when you enter the audition room.

Whether it's one line or three scenes you want to bring your A-Game. Get experience with film/TV scripts - from sit-coms to major motion pictures and see on-camera, the results you don't get to see in the audition.

You really do need to do it all and impress on your first read. Various audition exercises and continued practice help the actor demystify the process and give you the confidence to make strong choices and trust your instincts. A sensational deal at $250.

Film Acting Technique with Jeffrey Zeiner

Ten Classes
Jeffrey's unique approach starts with the concept 'you do the acting, not the script' This inside-to-outside film acting technique assures the actor he is thinking and feeling the beats of the story long before going to script. The camera can see in your eyes if you are being honest, connecting, and in the moment. A free sample class is available before each term to introduce the actor to Jeffrey and his style (Thurs., May 19, 2016 from 7:30 to 9:30 PM). For additional information see www.jeffreyzeiner.com -- call Jeffrey directly at 212-245-1237 to discuss registration. Fee: $375 payable in three installments.
