Private Event

total prep fusion SOLD OUT – Atlanta, GA

January 18, 2020 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Total Prep Fusion is a one day 8-hour intensive providing actors personal, in-depth instruction and practical, professional advice on the preparation process. This class combines Arvold-Warner’s core curriculum Total Prep 1 and Total Prep 2. Master teacher Erica Arvold guides actors using the Arvold-Warner 10-step preparation checklist for creating character for film & television. This multi-layered, progressive study is for intermediate adult actors, college-level and above. The Arvold-Warner approach is a synthesis of the major 20th century acting methods, with focus on supporting and developing each individual’s personal practice while also expanding their craft toolkit. Grounded in the detailed study of a scene, actors explore efficient, effective techniques for creating action-based characters for the audition as well as the set.

Class is limited to 12 participants.

Features of the class include:

  • script analysis
  • sensory work
  • in-character thinking
  • developing relationships
  • on-camera practice
  • individualized coaching
  • 1-hour lunch break

Actors will deepen their ability to create exciting, original and personal work. The first half of class is discussion and exercise based, and the second half is intensive coaching – please come prepared to work!
