Acting the Extremes

This 1-day class will teach you how to master many of the “extreme” characters you may come across in your career!

Actors are called upon to tackle all kinds of challenging material. How would you approach a Disney Villain? Or a sitcom stereotype? How about the next Mother of Dragons?

In this class, Howard will teach you how to avoid common traps involved with playing the extremes. Each actor will be assigned unique material – there’s no one-size-fits-all! Each extreme has a specific lesson. Learn the right ways to approach an extreme role without losing your authenticity or becoming a stereotype.

Some extremes that may be covered:

Sitcom “Stereotypes”
Disney Esque roles 
Schizophrenia / Mental Challenges 
Serial Killer / Horror 
Drug Addict 
High Fantasy/ Mythical Characters 
Hostage Situation 
Natural Disaster Victim
Southern Belle  
Organized Crime/ Thug/ Henchmen  
Old Hollywood 
And more…

Date: Thursday, October 12, at 10am (PT)
