Learn techniques to enhance your acting skills at Jill Donnellan’s Hollywood Acting Studio Jax Classes!
Acting classes for T.V. and Film with Jill Donnellan
In the weekly* Hollywood Acting Studio Jax classes, you will learn how to:
- Improve your character development
- Understand and execute comedic timing
- Read commercial copy to deliver a professional performance for the camera
- Use improvisations as a method to build confidence and hone listening skills
- Prepare for auditions of all types
* Two month minimum to start, and month to month after the initial two months.
What the classes will cover:
Dramatic Scenes – We will work on the character development, the depth of the emotional content and the layers of the character being portrayed.
Comedy Scenes – We will teach actors to take their moments, understand comedic timing and work those laughs for the audience.
Commercials – Voice and on camera techniques will be taught to help the actor bring the unique likability that a good commercial actor should have.
Cold Readings – Remain in character while still being “on book”. Timing, eye coordination and the ability to move and react while reading are all part of a good cold read.
Improvisations – There’s nothing better than flexing your imagination than doing improvisations. We have several improvisational games that help the actor dive into different characters and situations.
Audition Techniques – We work this class as an audition with the actor in front of the camera and the coach sitting behind the camera reading the other characters lines.
Join us on any Tuesday night to start your 8 week actor-intensive workshop. The workshop is designed to be flexible so you can start your 8 weeks at any point you choose. Just sign-up and show-up on Tuesday to get started with your 8 week acting course.
