Scene Study/Audition Intensive Course
"Sean Whalen is a working actor, writer, and producer with over 25 years of experience in Hollywood. He has worked in literally every type of genre in entertainment: large studio movies, small independent films, comedy TV, dramatic TV, Soap Operas, children's shows, commercials, etc. Being involved in the business from all sides has given Sean a wealth of knowledge that he is excited to share with new actors trying to expand their knowledge so they can have a long career in show business.
SCENE STUDY FROM A WORKING ACTOR'S PERSPECTIVE
Having scenes broken down and analyzed by a working actor, writer and producer is a unique experience. Sean wants to make sure you understand that you have to break down a scene with the full knowledge of who you are in the scene, who your partner is in the scene, what the writer is trying to say, and where it fits in the story. Unfortunately many actors think that if you understand these aspects of the scene, then it "puts you in your head" and keeps you from being loose. Sean knows that you still have to be open, truthful, and in the moment WHILE having full knowledge of what the producers and directors are trying to achieve. This approach takes your skills to the next level and gets you ready to work on any set or stage.
We know you may be familiar with the basics of scene work. My Audition intensive would focus on taking those skills and applying them to getting a job. I will cover:
1) Learning how to figure out how your audition scene speaks to your character, the colors you choose, and the overall story.
2) How to sell yourself in an audition.
3) How to be confident and why there is no other option.
4) How to understand that auditioning is a collaboration between you and the director/ producers/ and casting directors."
