Building A Character & Audition Technique

Offering workshops through Rosie Ferdin Cruz and her Actor’s Conference in San Bruno outside SF has been one of the best things that ever happened to me in regards to my teaching. Forever grateful and I’ll get back there real soon! While teaching at Rosie’s space in San Bruno I began to notice a number of actors were coming down from the Sacramento area to attend. Got me thinking “why not try one up there?” With the assistance and support of Donna-Lisa Otto and Corinne Meadors the one day workshops in Sacramento took off. Folks started to request that I come up and do a full 2 day weekend workshop. Well…best be careful what ya pray for ‘cause it’s happening ;)))
All who register can sign up for a Free 20 minute Online Video Chat with me regarding how things are going in their life as an actor, the play we’ll be working with and work we’ll be doing over the course of the weekend. This will help us to become better acquainted before our weekend starts.
Attendees will get a solid workout, coming away with more confidence in how to approach our work as actors with clarity, trust and conviction. All work will be Meisner and Method based. We will be using Stephen Adly Guirgis’ play “Last Days of Judas Iscariot” as our text. Upon registration participants will receive a pdf of the play and are required to give it at least one solid reading and bring a printed paper copy to class.
As an added bonus and a great way of wrapping things up, our last 2-3 hours on Sunday will be spent shooting (with a 4K camera and great sound quality) the work we’ve built over the weekend. This will afford everyone the opportunity to take home a solid piece of video of your work at it’s best. Add something fresh to an existing demo reel or even jump start a new one. You will also come away from the course with more than just the beginnings of a new monologue from “Last Days of Judas Iscariot” under your belt.
Here’s to a great weekend together in Sacramento doing what we all love. Creating Art and building technique that provokes, ask questions, tells the truth and entertains.
Can’t think of a better way to start off the New Year…looking forward to you joining us!!!
With Care and Respect,
“When I think of all Kirk Baltz continues to do as an actor while offering his workshops in the states and abroad I can’t help but wonder “how many artists has this man helped to change for the better?” Trust me when I say it’s a lot. They all now stand taller, go deeper and take the space they deserve while keeping it all insanely simple. Give yourself the gift of working with him, you’ll be glad you did.”
