Michael H. Cole & Vince Pisani Team up to teach in Decatur!

Michael H. Cole has adapted Sanford Meisner’s method of “being in the moment” and Kinesiology into a highly successful unique and personal approach to auditioning and acting in both theatre and film. This intimate class will be an aggressive session for the working actor for both stage and film which will enhance your craft with strong affected personal choices through focused preparation and give you tried and true techniques for any role and every audition be it one line or pages of dialogue.

No showcases, no prepared scenes, no games, no busy work. Just a lot of hard work and study with focused personal attention and passion.

You will be …. put on camera regularly, use sides of all lengths from film & TV to commercial & industrial, create & shoot 1 minute actor’s slates for upload to your web profiles (ie. 800casting), be immersed in the Meisner Method, weekly hone your knowledge of the local and national status of the industry, become familiar with what to expect once you book the gig, develop techniques to respond instantly to redirects both in an audition and on a set, and
