Wednesday 10:00am-2:00pm

Wednesday Night 7:00pm-11:00pm

Living and working in Los Angeles over 20 years, I have come to believe all actors must understand the differences between acting for the stage and acting in front of the camera to be successful in that business. Actors must be able to tap into their own “emotional power’ and sustain intimacy while surrounded by cameras, crews and personnel, as well as other actors.

The acting methods I utilize, in conjunction with the immediate feedback afforded by videotaping actors performing in class (2 cameras—split-screen format), allow actors to more quickly master techniques that raise the art of acting to a level of unimpeachable honesty and naturalness.

“You can act… but can you get the job?”

It’s that 5 minutes in the Casting Director’s office that can make or break you! That’s your opportunity to show everything you’ve got! No matter where you are in your development as an actor, if you don’t get past the audition you don’t get the job! After 20 years of auditioning and casting in New York and Hollywood, Joy Rinaldi has developed powerful audition techniques that will enable the actor to approach each audition with new confidence! Videotaping will be used for review.
