There’s a big difference between understanding your lines and bringing them to
life in an audition or performance. I’ve often listened to actors give genuinely
insightful interpretations of their lines and then see those same lines die a slow
death in front of the camera or on stage. The problem is that their insights have
to be translated into human behavior, into something that will be believable as a
human being actually experiencing something. Most actors don’t have a clue
about how to do this.

There’s only one thing that can translate insight into action and ironically enough,
you’re doing it right now. You are experiencing! You translate your interpretation
of the words into action through your moment-to-moment experiencing. Knowing
how to do this is at the heart of every CORE Intensive.

With a CORE Intensive you are not learning a method or system. The approach
is experiential. You learn how to experience your way through every audition,
every performance. To find out if this approach is right for you, you need to try it
on. Take a 90-Minute Exploratory with Steven Ivcich, the originator of CORE, on
Saturday, March 7th (1:00-2:30pm) or Monday, March 9th (1:00-2:30pm). The
class is free and you get a “hands on” feel for how CORE can work for you. To
attend you must register here.

Yep, it’s true!

In this level we introduce you to several genres of voiceover that expand your voiceover repertoire. You also get to be more in control of what you’d like to work on and can bring in your own material or we can figure out scripts for you. Whether you’ve taken the Intro to VO class and want to learn more or you’re already out there in the voice over world and are looking for more time in the booth with feedback – the ADV VO class is your friend. If you’re working towards making a demo, taking the ADV VO class gets you a lot more bang for your buck than private coaching . So if you’re contemplating brushing up on your voiceover skills, come hang with us in the Green Room VO booth and we’ll offer you a discount on repeat sessions! E-mail us to get the discount.

Anne Acker is a professional actor and mom living in Chicago. She teaches on-camera acting at The Green Room Studio, as well as runs the Kids and Teens Program.

As a child’s acting coach, I often hear the same scenario from the parents of my young students. Mom or Dad agrees to have their child audition for a professional role—they then spend time helping the child prepare, putting together the child’s resume and picture, coordinating their outfit, running lines, taking time out of the family schedule to get their child to the audition, and so on. Once there, the child enters the audition room without mom or dad. When they return, the parents eagerly ask how it went, and the child responds with a vague “fine”. The parents are left to ponder the mysterious inner workings of the audition room. While we can’t expect children to give a detailed analysis of each experience, we can keep these five things in mind to help young actors in their auditions.
