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

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

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

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
