Chez Studio workshops

CHEZ STUDIO WORKSHOPS ANNOUNCES – 

DIRECTOR / PRODUCER LANCE DREESEN 

 

APRIL 27TH & 28TH  

 

Weekend Intensives for Adults & Under-16 years old

 

Shay Bentley-Griffin and the Chez Studio are looking forward to having Lance Dreesen work with our Georgia talent for the first spring workshop of 2013. Having worked with him as both a casting director and co-producer, Shay knows how committed he is to helping actors. Shay believes that not only is Lance a great director, he is also a remarkable teacher. He has the ability to guide and build actors’ talent through his experience.

 

Our industry is growing so fast and needs strong talent. Many L.A. actors are now moving to Georgia for the opportunity to work in our great industry. Our goal is for Georgia actors to be the first cast!

 

We will host a two-half-day Adult class and a two-half-day Under-16 class.

 

UNDER-16 – Sat 9:00-1:00 / Sun 2:00-6:00

ADULT – Sat 2:00-6:00 / Sun 9:00-1:00

 

Class Description:

International award-winning filmmaker and acting instructor Lance Dreesen will be teaching acting techniques (and audition secrets!) that will enable talent to stand out to casting directors. Dreesen specializes in encouraging his students, from beginner to experienced, to use their own behavior, personality and charm in their acting – and therefore gain freedom in front of the camera.   His techniques will not just help talent to “get the role” – but will also help build self-confidence that can be applied to all areas of life.

In a fun, safe, and supportive environment, Dreesen helps his students to prepare scenes that work for each of them, then films them in a “real-life” scenario.  He then watches and analyzes each scene with the class, a technique that has helped actors to improve both dramatically and immediately.  The class applies what they have learned in a final scene.

 

Are you as excited as we are and ready to attend? Here is our PayPal link for you to save your seat in either our Adult or Under-16 class right now!

“I credit Darin Scott’s workshop with giving me the knowledge & where with all to get my debut feature, the thriller “Bone Dry,” made.  I consider it to be one of the highlights of my career.  A quintessential step in moving forward from a short film director to a feature film director.   You’ll walk away from the experience an enlightened filmmaker with more tools to assist you in one of the most challenging careers imaginable.”

Leslye Headland’s biting new office comedy
ASSISTANCE
opens Friday, April 12 at 8:00pm
For tickets, dates, and other info visit: www.pnotheatre.org


For these young assistants, life is an endless series of humiliations at the hands of their hellacious boss, a powerful uber-magnate. In rare moments of calm when the phone calls stop rolling, Nick and Nora and their traumatized co-workers question whether all their work will lead to success — or just more work.

Leslye Headland’s ASSISTANCE is a biting, high-octane satire about our attraction to power and what we’re willing to sacrifice to stay in its orbit.


“…the theatrical equivalent of a triple-shot espresso, bristling with propulsive nerviness and high style…ferociously funny.” —LA Times

“Headland can unleash a rapid-fire comic blitzkrieg with a spot-on ear for the way 20-somethings relate to each other.” —NY Post

“Leslye Headland’s viciously funny ASSISTANCE aspires to be a Gen Y Glengarry with a sweeter finish and a place for women. Headland is a puckish weaver of sharp, pinging dialogue, a modern-day screwball patter.” —Time Out NY


Directed by George Contini

With: Barrett Doyle, Mandi Lee, Grant McGowen, Morgan Pelligrino, Liz Schad, Joe Sykes, Alana Cheshire, Ben Silver, & Kenneth Camp
