One of the toughest things a performer will face is the “small role.” The “under 5” in daytime. The “supporting character” in VO.
You know what I’m talking about: the on-camera co-star that says “You want cream in your coffee, sir?”, the “Salesman #2” VO role in the radio spot who just says “I think we can do that,” and the like.
You’d think it would be easy peasy, but we tend to overthink opportunities like that.
Well, here comes Michael Kostroff to the rescue. Check this out.
Michael sat down and figured out what works and what doesn’t when it comes to auditioning for those smaller roles.
And, as he does so well, he created a one-session class to help you meet these opportunities head on, and maximize them.
And if you’re in LA this coming Tuesday night, Dec 11, he’s teaching that class just for you.
It’s called 5 Lines And Under, and I’ve watched him put it together. It’s awesome. Here’s what he has to say about it:
As I’ve often said, smaller TV and film roles are among the hardest to audition for. (I built my resume on these things, so I know firsthand how challenging they can be!) In this class, I’ll work with you on sides for these all-too-brief characterizations and show you how to find the hidden clues, figure out your job in the scene, and avoid obsessing over your performance. Let’s make these auditions a lot more fun, and less nerve-wracking!
If you’ve taken his Audition Psych 101 class already, there are three things you should know.
#1, this 5 Lines And Under class is the high quality, well thought out amazingness that you know Michael insists on.
#2, I begged him for a special rate for my students, clients and readers, and he gave me a special link that gives you a special 30% discount.
#2, it’s a much smaller, more intimate class, where you actually will get up and do some acting work.
But because it’s smaller, that means that seats are limited, so if you want in on it, click here now.
I’ll be there this Tuesday. That’s how important I think it is to know how to handle these very special situations.
And if you value these smaller roles and the opportunities they present (they pay the same per day as the bigger roles, right?), you need to take this class.
And I’ll see you Tuesday night!
Hope this helps!
