      Dates: June 14-15, 2014
      Time: 10:00AM to 6:00PM

      Location: Austin Actors Studio, located on Mopac just south of Spicewood

      Registration: email Donise Hardy at donise@... to reserve your
      spot. Class size is limited, so be sure to register early. A flyer will be
      sent to you, together with a Registration Slip and information on how to pay
      the registration fee.

      Class Description: The gateway to the job is the audition. To get the job,
      you have to nail the audition and do it in a way that makes you stand a cut
      above the competition. During the intensive, you will get practical
      knowledge with hands-on experience in audition preparation and delivery
      which will improve your ability to audition in a winning way for Film/TV and
      Commercial roles that will make the Decision Makers stand up and take notice
      of what you can bring to the table. Preparation includes the homework you
      need to do when you are told you have an audition. Delivery includes how to
      connect with your audience during a commercial. Both Donise and David have
      been the Casting Directors for thousands of auditions and have been amazed
      at how many people with talent still don't know how to properly prepare and
      conduct their auditions. After this intensive, you will walk away with
      renewed confidence and experience that will win you those coveted roles.

      The weekend will be divided in half so each student has an opportunity to
      work with Donise (Saturday, June 14th) and then with David (Sunday, June
      15th). The commercial portion will consist of on-camera work to put your
      new techniques to practical use. Everything you need to know in only two
      days with top industry experts!

      Should you decide to take advantage of only one of the two days, the
      registration fee will be $150 OR take both for only $250!
