The 2 day on-camera weekend class began in 1988 and is now taught all over the country. The classes are kept small to ensure lots of camera time per person. The participants receive individual critiques, as well as the ability to watch what their fellow classmates. This interactive observation is priceless! Everyone discovers what works and what doesn’t for an audition.
How does it work?
Everyone is given “sides” to take home and work on, as well as, several cold readings during actual class time. You are filmed as you deliver the side.
Time and time again, participants call after taking this class to tell us that they have used the techniques taught in the class. They are steadily booking those roles that previously were elusive.
Lori also sprinkles in lots of motivational anecdotes and stories. She continually keeps the actors in a positive frame of mind. She has discovered that this positive approach helps when they go out into the auditioning arena, because now they have only amazing thoughts and confidence of being able to conquer the world.
If you want to feel this same way about your auditions, this is the course for you.
Who else is this class for?
This class is for almost any one interested in acting. It has been proven very beneficial to stage actors who want to learn the nuances that will help them cross over into film and television. It is also for actors who have been working for years and need that extra spark that has a tendency to dwindle in time.
This class is held at our studio in North Miami Beach, Florida.
What Our Attendees Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our actors do the talking!
Just a few years after my first class with Lori, I auditioned to be the host of a top national children’s television show. I was one of hundreds of actors who auditioned for the role across the country. Thanks to that solid audition, I booked the job as host and went on to win an EMMY a year later.
Attending Lori’s classes has taught me valuable audition techniques which has helped me fulfill my dream of becoming a successful working actor.
I immediately turned to Lori for her expertise. I took her TV/Film audition class, One Line Wonders class, and read her book “The Organic Actor.” Her coaching guided me to headshots, talent agents, and through the crucial “do’s and dont’s” of the industry.
So far I have worked on a major TV show and I’m getting ready to work on my 4th film. Lori has taken me from 0 to 100 in 4 months. Lori works wonders. Thank you for making my dream a reality.”
So what is “ONE LINE WONDERS?” you ask!
This is an amazing 1 day class that is only doing 1 liners. I just recently started teaching this class again and the response has been
Here’s an email I received from a Student after teaching in Orlando:
Your class was amazing! I was truly humbled by the talent in the room and the knowledge that my journey has just begun. On my drive back to Tampa, I evaluated my experience in your class. Currently, I am studying scene work, and I felt your class would give me something completely different to work on. What an understatement! Who knew so some much went into a one-line audition? I didn’t…I came away with a renewed awareness of what it takes to nail these auditions and book the jobs. I learned so much from you and your direction as well as from the other actors in class. And that a spot-on, one-line audition can lead to bigger and better gigs.
Your no-nonsense, direct approach was just what I needed. And getting in front of the camera five times in five different scenarios was priceless. This is not an easy business, and it is surely not for the faint of heart. I thought about what your Dad used to tell you about pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. Well, that’s what I’m doing today. I am going to continue studying, learning, preparing, and giving 100% to every audition. I have a couple of auditions this week and will apply everything I learned in your class.
I thank you, Lori, and look forward to the day when my auditions will make you proud.
Have a wonderful week!
AND an agent in Florida wrote this a couple of weeks ago after my One-Line Class:
Your class has helped so many. One of my favorite things I hear from actors that take your class is how you let them see the others audition and then hear your insightful and frank feedback which helps them see they do have a lot to improve on. They are always
so much more motivated than before to work on their acting versus maybe just me telling them to practice more. And as important to me, they are always just so inspired by you, too, when you finish your class as they believe in themselves so much more.
I LOVE teaching this class and the actors LOVE taking this class.
This is an ON-CAMERA class to examine how to break down ONE line. “ONE line,” you say? That doesn’t sound hard. OH YEA??? Let me tell you about 1 line. Even though you probably won’t have a difficult time memorizing just 1 line, (or will you when you factor in nerves?) you still have to learn how to turn just one little line into an entire audition.
“Who wants to audition for just one line,” you ask? YOU DO!!!
“WHY,” you wonder? I’ll tell you why!
I was casting a big feature film and I brought these girls in to be the Bimbette secretary of the sleazy lawyer. Their ONE LINE was, “He will see you now.”
Can’t be THAT hard, can it? Oh yes it can.
I had 6 actresses audition for this. Clearly one actress was the best. After she did her audition and booked the role, the director determined that the Bimbette Secretary should be EVERYWHERE her sleazy boss should be. Her Boss? Bill Murry. The Movie? WILD
THINGS! She worked? 4 weeks! All from a ONE LINE audition!
One time when I taught this class an older actress signed up. She had been around the business for years and told me she only took the class so she could be in front of me. I don’t want actors to take my classes for that reason. I want them to take the classes so they will learn something. Anyway, she called me the following week and said she had a 1 line audition for a National Television Series. She went into the audition and knew exactly what to do because she had just taken the class and was so confident and, of course, she booked it!! I love hearing stories like that. A director can tell a good actor by just one line. I have brought actors in to audition for 1 line and then the director asks that actor to look at a bigger role and audition for that.
ONE LINE can tell many things about an actor. Make sure it tells them that you are good!
So, exactly what is a Self-taping class and what are you going to learn?
1. Do you want to watch examples of Good and Bad self-tapes to see what works and what doesn’t?
2. Do you want to get behind the camera yourself to tape your classmates so then you will know what the person who is taping you should be doing?
3. Do you want to learn about emailing techniques, compressing, uploading, sound, lighting, backdrops?
4. Do you want to know exactly what the client (casting director, producer, director) is looking for?
5. Do you want to tape and be taped to practice?
6. Do you have a self tape that needs taping? Bring it this weekend and have it
