Acting is all about process. The more an actor can hone their process of analyzing scripts, building characters, making choices, and rehearsing those choices, the higher the quality of their work will be. The aim of our Adult Scene Study class is to provide a foundation in the basic process of acting work. A process that can be applied to television, film, or stage work. There is only one way to master any craft . . . practice. Practice with us at Imagination Emissary, and let us help you raise your bar.

Each student will be assigned a partner and a scene to work on for the duration of the 6 week course. The instructors will guide the students with direction after viewing the work helping them move toward a more truthful and specific performance.

Audition Lab | Fall 2022 HYBRID

INSTRUCTOR: Joe Massingill
PRICE: $300​
DATES: Wednesday 9/7-10/19 (no class 10/5 for Yom Kippur)

The Actor's job is to Audition. In order to book the job and get on set, or on stage The Actor must audition. The problem is auditioning and acting are not the same thing. Auditioning requires its own technique to get it right. In our Audition Lab, Actors will learn how to break down scripts quickly, make strong choices, and create layered three dimensional characters that will stand out from the competition. Each week Actors will be assigned a new scene to work on, perform it in class, and receive direction and feedback from the instructor, as well as invited industry guests. Practice makes Progress. Progress your career, and take your audition skills to the next level. Join the Imagination Emissary Audition Lab today!
