Improve Your Auditions / Public Speaking Skills With Owen Hisle's Acting / Public Speaking Workshop

Statistically speaking, auditions and public speaking is the number one fear held by American adults.  For many, this fear is related to inexperience and lack of confidence – both of which can be improved by taking Owen Hisle's acting / public speaking workshop

The great acting teacher Sanford Meisner defined acting as “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”   But for many of us who communicate before an audience, whether as actors, public officials, pastors, executives, educators, or lawyers, the temptation is to do the opposite, to act imaginarily under truthful circumstances.  Fueled by a legitimate desire to deliver a powerful message, we craft our words, our presentation, and our delivery to such an extent that the drive to do our best can actually rob us of sharing a genuine moment with an audience

As actors and public speakers, it can be very easy for us to become nervous or upset about our next audition or speech despite our understanding of the importance of auditioning and public speaking.  This can happen at any time, even to experienced actors and speakers.  The big question is what can we do about it?  It turns out that one solution has been used by actors and actresses to solve this very same problem

FOR PUBLIC SPEAKERS- Play The Role Of The Speaker That You Would Like To Be
FOR ACTORS- The Art Of Not Acting

(Acting Workshops are ideal if your an actor, comedian, official, pastor, executive, educator, lawyer, etc)

Owen Hisle's acting / public speaking workshop will cover the following:
  • Being professional but also making sure you are HAVING FUN
  • Whether experienced or no-experience, always regularly attend acting classes / workshops
  • Casting / Audition notices (Galina's Casting,   Film In Colorado,   Craig's List tv/film/video,   Craig's List gigs/talent)
  • Your own website
  • Hats, Shirts, Business Cards (advertise, advertise, advertise)
  • Extra's Companies -vs- Film Schools
  • Understanding and preparing the Sides and Scripts
  • Memorization techniques
  • Hands on exercises-participation
  • Making the words your own
  • Going to the audition
  • Getting the film role
  • Honing your skills, Auditions, Power Auditions
  • Film, On Camera, Improvisation
  • Stage freight, Self Confidence, Posture
  • Welcoming nervousness, Eye contact, Taking detours
  • Pause, Being OK with messing up, Never let them see you sweat
  • You are safe here, Intimidation, It's OK--let them laugh because their up next
  • Better actors; Gay or Straight? - Sides and Scripts never got that memo
  • Excuse me; I'm in the middle of an audition / speech
  • I know it's not me
  • NDA's, Talent Release Forms, Contracts


Every actor's, actress's, public speaker's number one main reason for taking any acting / public speaking workshop, should never be based upon the acting / public speaking coach themselves, their name, how many projects are on their resume, how many awards they have won, their geographical location, or how many 'Likes' are on their Facebook page

(Remember, every acting / public speaking coach out there is not better then the other and there is no-one-individual coach that is God's gift to the world because, 1); every coach is the same every day person as you are and 2); even the coach has a coach)

The main reason for acting / public speaking workshops themselves is to - Network with others, keep your craft honed, work together as a team, reveal to yourself and each other what your talent and niche is, reveal to yourself and to each other your strengths and weaknesses, make your strengths stronger, turn your weaknesses into strengths, be provided with new tools, or sharpen the ones you already have (but most of all, have fun) - Acting / public speaking workshops are not a science and no one is ever going to get it right each and every time; and that is perfectly OK

Elizabeth Session - Character Actress - Denver, CO
On Saturday October 21st I had the pleasure of taking an acting workshop with acting coach Owen Hisle.  Owen was very energetic in showing on camera acting.  It was fun and exciting taking his class.  If I have to give a rating I would give 5/5 stars.  Thank you Owen for a great fun time

Bibi Milagros - Actress - Fountain, CO
Owen Hisle's Acting / Public Speaking Workshop was so much fun!  He seemed very knowledgeable and shared some of his experience and information on how the industry operates.  We discussed our goals and practiced some of his shared tips and techniques on auditions and such.  The food was good and the energy was better!  Can't wait to attend another of Owen Hisle's Workshops.  I'm sure we've only seen a fraction of how he can help an upcoming actor!  Thank you Owen!!!

Kathy Gloisten - Actress - Parker, CO
Having been a professional teacher for over 30 years I can say that Owen is one of the best!  His passion for his craft is unmatched.  He has boundless enthusiasm for helping actors hone their skills.  Following his lesson plans, Owen started with the basics after all introductions and shared experiences were expressed.  He allowed for questions and answered all thoroughly.  We had opportunities to practice slating, framing and profiling for auditions as well as script dialogue with classmates.  I feel that I learned a lot and grew tremendously.  My confidence has been increased, I am poised and ready for my next filming adventure.  One of the best techniques I will always use after attending Owen's class is his memorization tricks.  Monologues have always been a challenge for me but now I'm not so afraid of them, thanks to Owen!  I'd recommend aspiring and seasoned actors alike to consider taking one of Owen's workshops.  You'll come away with more than you expected and maybe even land that next big role

Bekka Spidell - Actress - Aurora, CO
I attended the UTRF Acting Class Workshop in Aurora Colorado. It was a nice course and refresher on what to expect when going into an audition. It was also nice clarification of what casting directors and producers are looking for in an audition as well. We went over the basic procedures of an audition and then each practiced the beginning of one to make sure we all remembered to do the right things. We didn't do much in the way of actual acting, besides the rapid-fire question improv game we did. But still, it was thorough covering of the audition process which is an important step that deserved the time put into teaching it. I am looking forward to seeing what other workshops become available

Michael Kennedy - Actor - Aurora, CO
Owen, thanks for offering the acting class on Saturday. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot from you. Your energy and enthusiasm really brought the topics to life and made an impact on me and the others in the class too. Starting this initial class with the mechanics of auditions was perfect, "starting on the ground floor," the improv lesson was fun and creative and I look forward to more classes

Joseph Mendiola - Actor - Aurora, CO
Hello Owen.  I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be part of your acting class last Saturday.  My wife and I were so happy to be in that group.  Meeting those people like Don's family; with their two daughters who are so full of encouragement at their young age, and Bekka was so awesome to work with, which is giving me encouragement to learn some advance courses for acting.  The acting class were so encouraging for me to learn so many things like, how to Handel some rejection, and learn to keep on reaching with my goals, to be a marketable artist.  Being with UTRF, I know I can grow, and learning from you.  Thank you so much for giving your time to this class, we look forward to the next class
