Fine On Acting Technique & Auditioning

Fine on Acting Technique & Auditioning is an accelerated course which covers BOTH the foundations of acting technique and audition technique.

Foundations of Acting Technique (exclusive to this class) includes:

  • Personalization
  • Sensory work
  • Emotional recall
  • Concentration
  • How to handle nerves
  • Uta Hagen’s Object Exercises
  • Howard Fine’s 8 steps for script analysis and role preparation
  • Addressing individual habits and common mistakes
  • Working on assigned material
  • Scene study
  • Adding to your actor’s toolbox


Audition Technique includes:

  • Working on assigned audition scripts and submitting self-tapes for critique and in class re-works
  • How to apply Howard’s approach quickly to Film & Television sides.
  • How to interpret notes casting directors may give in the audition room and immediately translate it into applicable “actor” language.
  • How to ground yourself without props and a set
  • What to do when scenes call for physicality and action
  • How to use yourself fully and ace the audition regardless of being “right” for the role.


Unlike our other Audition Technique classes, this course offers the actor an entire foundational approach to the work with highly personalized attention to the individual actor’s craft.

This course exclusively addresses the craft of acting as a whole, adding necessary skills to the actors toolbox to not only aide the actor in booking the job, but nailing the role on set or on stage.

The length of each class is determined by the number of participants, but students should plan to be available for a maximum of four hours.
