ACTING WORKSHOPS VIRTUAL
Training for the ever-evolving actor
We believe that an actor must continue to grow. The industry is constantly changing, our psyche is constantly evolving, and we are constantly learning. We strive to bring you those tools that add new perspective, insight, and value to your already-awesome-toolkit.
Our workshops are designed to provide high value at low cost.
In this 1 hour webinar, Jordan Woods-Robinson (The Walking Dead, Homeland, Nashville, Blue Man Group) will teach you how to translate your vision into any audition setup. As an industry-leading self-tape expert, Jordan will teach you tools that will allow you to live fully in your body, activate your environment, and forget about the “perfect rectangle” of a self-tape setup.

Conspiracy Theories: Next Level Script Analysis
In this interactive 3-hour workshop, Jordan Woods-Robinson (The Walking Dead, Homeland, Nashville, Blue Man Group) will introduce his process of using hidden clues in the text to build a large enough theory that it will absorb any further information. Using two scripts, we will hone our instincts to see what no one else sees, to go deeper and deeper, and to get the scene on our feet without ever “memorizing.” Open to all ages, however we cannot guarantee that there won’t be sensitive contact or strong language. We will wrap up with a Q&A at the end.
The Body: Laban
*Watch/Participate in your own space but without personal guidance.* In this interactive 4 hour workshop, Jordan Woods-Robinson (The Walking Dead, Homeland, Nashville, Blue Man Group) will teach 3 Efforts and 8 Action Drives of Laban.

We will provide a physical warm-up, explore the 8 Action Drives, translate these theatrical tools for the on-camera actor, and actively apply them to character work on camera. Actors in this workshop will walk away with a new understanding of their body/mind connection and how to actively use this in an audition or character development. Open to ages 16+ and wrapped up with a Q&A.
