Friday:  June 30, 2017 – 7-10 PM. $50 

Instant Characters – Building strong characters starts the moment your foot hits the floor, not the moment you start “thinking.” This workshop will focus on the organic unfolding of character based on that first step. Characters are richer, instantly fleshed out and exciting, all leading to playing people you’ve never inhabited, in scenes you’ve never before played. More being…less thinking!

This class will be held at the CSz Arena at Camera 3  

288 S. Second St.                                                                                                                                                       San Jose, CA 95113

Sunday:  July 2, 2017 – Full Day Workshop  $100  Workshop consists of two classes.                                 We cannot split the classes or the fee. 

10am-1pm  Expressing Your Points of You:   Most scenes go off track because we’re not aware of our character’s point-of-view, what their intentions are. This workshop, hailed as “Vital…an eye-opener…,” exposes you to what your feeling, what your focus is, and what you get to give attention to. This is a great workshop!                                                                                                                                                            1pm-2pm Lunch on your own.                                                                                                                               2pm-5pm  Pro-(Positive) Choices:  A toolbox contains more than a hammer, so shouldn’t your scenes contain more than anger and conflict? Find creative freedom when positive emotional choices drive your scenes. Guide your scenes forward without a need to conjure up an argument, defend your side of the story, or your need to have your ego intact at the scene’s end. It’s not about winning or losing---it’s about keeping the scene alive. 

This Class will take place at San Jose State - Campus Village C                                                                     320 South 9th Street, San José, CA 95112

Let it Go---You’ll be so Happy You Did! – Are you making decisions of where the scene’s supposed to go without letting it go where it wants to go? Start your scenes strongly, certainly and surprisingly. If you think you know where your scene’s going…you’re probably missing out on some great experiences!

Operation Cooperation — Are you helping your partner smoothly fly through the scene, or are you not aware? If you’re there to be your partner’s “Hype Man,” you’re the perfect partner. The finest of scenes start with two actors working with one mind…the scene’s mind! Make the stage your “cooperating room!”
