Film Acting Workshop:

Get hands-on acting experience while gaining material for your reel as we rehearse, workshop, and film a short film in which you are guaranteed a juicy role.

Tired of being turned down by agents and passed over at auditions because your reel and resume are thin? With this workshop you are guaranteed a minute of reel footage and a significant character role while gaining experience and knowledge in a hands-on workshop setting. The roles in the film will be written to suit each actor and requests for types will be taken.

Sign up via Email:
Based on the the talent present a screenplay will be written and emailed to the cast.
The Table Read Workshop: TBA. We'll workshop the table-read discussing character and character building.
2-3 Rehearsal Workshop will follow (based on cast-size): We'll turn the rehearsal process into a learning process, using Meisner, Grotowski, and Strassberg techniques and exercises to explore the possibilities of your performance.
Shoot Dates: TBD based on cast availability (Late November to early December)

The cost is $225 which will go to paying a professional crew, renting professional equipment, and financing any art dept. or location costs incurred in filming. Included in the price are a free meal and craft services for each day of filming as well as a DVD copy of all of your footage and three copies of the film itself.

Music students can perform their instrument in the film for $50!  DVD copy of footage will be provided once film is completed.

Student gives guitar teacher, David Putnam, an electric guitar!

When I have a student get excited about our lessons it really makes me happy inside to know that I can bring other people joy, especially, through music! I've had many tips given to me from my students over the years as a thank you to me for all they have learned from our lessons. I've received gifts that have ranged from money to books and more and I am so grateful for all. Just recently, I was given a guitar as a thank you from one of my jazz guitar students, Matthias. How cool is that?! (it's the cream guitar on the right).

Check out Matthias' band, Indyus. His music will definitely get you going!
