Joshua’s adult classes work on the three most important aspects of the business: auditioning, scene work, and marketing. The main focus is a combination of audition technique and scene work from current film and TV. Auditioning is a skill in itself, and one that many talented actors never master. Adult classes teach the skills needed for both booking and shooting the job, which are two very different things. Classes are capped at 15 actors, and each student performs every class. The first week of every month is a “pre-read” with Joshua, utilizing sides from projects currently casting. The second week of each month is an “on-camera producer session.” Each student will audition one at a time on camera. The entire class watches the playback of the producer sessions and Joshua critiques the auditions live. The third and fourth week each month are “on set” weeks. Actors prepare their sides as if they have the job, and will work across another actor instead of casting director. One audition week we will focus on single or multi-camera comedy and the following week we will work on one hour dramas. The second two weeks are focused on the actor’s relationship in the scene with the other actor, and also their ability to take direction while shooting a scene. The class will also cover all essential aspects of marketing and the business side of the industry. There is a focus on promotional issues such as headshots, workshops, and representation.
