IAA Workshop June 16, 2018
1pm - 5pm

The IAA May workshop will focus on script analysis and making stronger choices. Much of the material will be from March when several people missed due to the weather and it will be good additional work for those who were able to make March.

We will cover:

*Discovering deeper meaning
*Thoughts in contrast with words
*Clues to meaning from other character dialogue
*The influence of subtext on line readings
*Never saying "I don't know"
*Bold choices based on text
*If it's not on the page, it's not on the stage

Your character's dialogue is only a small piece of the performance puzzle. Digging into the deeper meaning hidden under the text can bring about a stronger understanding of the scene and build a greater chemistry with the other actors as you work to flesh out the bolder and more interesting choices leading to more effective moment to moment work.

IAA Student and current LA Resident Katy O'Brian

"I was also thrilled to find that the information provided in the class was up to date. I have several friends who are working actors in Los Angeles and Chicago and they do not seem all together more informed about the business from their respective classes. I even shadowed a class in Los Angeles that was highlighted on and found that the information provided and the classwork was no different than that provided in Jim's classes.

You won't find a better deal for the quality. The environment is increadibly supportive but not superficial. Your work will be critiqued. It's the only way to improve...and you will improve."
