The Film Acting Academy of Denver offers several amazing workshops through the year, including local Casting Directors and Casting Directors, Directors, and coaches from  Los Angeles and New Mexico. In addition, we offer workshops on mastering your on-screen presence, intensive on-screen technical skill development, audition prep, and understanding the Hollywood standard for film and television acting (among others).


Mastering Your On-Screen Presence.
October 16th. 9 am to 1 pm. FREE!!
The Bug Theatre – 3654 Navajo St., Denver 80211.

Why does acting in movies and TV look so easy? Because it is! The secret to great “acting” when the camera is rolling is to not “act” at all, but rather to “be” yourself!  Most importantly, working actors know that “presence” is more important the “performance” but most actors choose to overact rather to let the scene happen. Most film and TV actors are simply being themselves when on screen. Beyond that, the difference between acting in front of an audience and acting in front of a camera is about understanding that ‘less is more’ on film. Actors do that by connecting to and listening to their scene partner, surrendering to their environment, realizing that movie acting is almost always a private conversation between scene partners, and by letting the other elements in film do their job! See? Easy!

Space in this free class (normally $135) is limited so please e-mail Patrick at to reserve your spot.

Need to take you auditions to the “next” level? Ready to be “L.A.” ready? Then this is the workshop you NEED! Maybe you’re thinking about auditioning in other markets for fim and t.v. roles. Or maybe you’ve already started auditioning there but you’re not getting noticed.

So what’s keeping your auditions from being great? Well, for starters, you may not understand what exactly “they” are looking for. It might surprise you to know that “they” aren’t looking for big characters with funny hats or accents and “they” certainly don’t want to see your interpretation of the character. Above all, “they” don’t want to feel like you are “acting” at all. “They” want you to be you and “they” want you to bring YOUR confidence and personality into the room with you. It really is THAT simple.

Workshop is limited to 10 people so everyone gets a ton of on-camera work and feedback. Cost is $115. It will be the best $115 you’ve ever spent on your career when it comes to audition prep. And if at the end of the workshop, you think I’ve wasted your time I’ll give you your money back.
