erica has been teaching audition technique since 2005.
each of her classes has a unique syllabus and theme, but all classes include specific, constructive feedback on performance and tech, general tips and plenty of time for clarifying questions.
the oh sh*t class!
you know those auditions… the ones that you look at and immediately think, “oh, shit.” this class takes actors through three of those intimidating scenes, including intimacy, action and non-human characters. gain confidence so you can turn “oh, sh*t” into “oh, i got this.”
the sci-fi + fantasy class!
genre auditions are weird and wonderful, and can be unendingly confusing. the traps are plenty. this class helps actors navigate these worlds with confidence and clarity.
the co-star class!
erica and cara’s super popular co-star class is back, in a smaller, strike-aware way! the class is run asynchronously, which is perfect for busy actors. and as always, it’s chock full of feedback.
the script analysis class!
erica and cara co-teach this in-depth class that focuses on breaking down audition sides and implementing your findings into your performance. this class sells out fast!
the virtual audition class!
virtual auditions are here to stay and they require a completely different technique than self-taping or live auditions. join erica, as she takes actors through practical exercises, providing constructive feedback and heaps of info along the way.
new!! the script analysis video package!
erica and cara have compiled a video tutorial and pdf package for actors who want to experience their script analysis technique without joining a long-form class!
“Thank you for a superb class! The notes and feedback you gave were bang-on and very individualized to each actor. The online format of the class was surprisingly awesome. In a lot of ways, I think it’s a better format for an on-camera class because we’re watching in the same medium which casting is viewing out tapes, so you’re able to observe fine details that you’d likely miss if it were an in-person group class. And I like how intimate the class it was – it made it feel personal and it was beautiful and educational to watch everyone play and grow each week.”
“I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful I am for this class. Obviously, I wasn’t surprised by the incredible amount of information and gems received because it’s just innately who you are as an “actor’s casting director”. We see it every day on social media, that you truly and genuinely have a heart for us and you want us to WIN and I know I can speak for all of us when I say t h a n k y o u. I know we hear all the time that casting is on our side, and while I’ve learned this to be true, you are just simply in a league of your own when it comes to casting. There’s just a way that you are able to give us all constructive criticism while always being positive, motivating and highlighting our strong points. My goodness, it’s needed in this industry, and you. just . get . it.”
