This event has been cancelled.
The School of Film, Dance and Theatre’s Screen Acting Summer Intensive workshop will be held over two weekends in July at ASU Film Spark in Santa Monica at the ASU California Center and will also be available as an online workshop. Students will participate in small workshops and learn about auditions, tools of the trade, monologues, improvised scenes, teleprompter techniques, voice-over and more.
Gene Ganssle, a lecturer in the school, will work with Los Angeles-based coaches to bring students a dynamic live and online experience on the business of screen acting. Ganssle has been acting professionally on stage and screen for 30 years in the Phoenix area, with more than 500 films, radio and television commercials and industrial projects to his credit and with dozens of stage roles. He has directed plays and feature films, runs his own video production company and has taught classes to thousands of students, including almost 10 years teaching acting and video production at ASU.
The continuing education workshop, which also features practical advice on the Los Angeles and Phoenix markets, is for actors of all skill levels, including community college, college and ASU alumni in the L.A. area. For students unable to attend in person, online enrollment is available at a dramatically reduced rate for online viewing of recorded workshops, submittal of questions and professional evaluation of self-recorded exercises.
The workshops are limited to 20 slots for the in-person workshop to ensure individual attention.
