Online via Zoom
Zoom is the perfect platform for this work together. Each week you’ll work in the virtual space online via Zoom, on camera, addressing auditions and self-tapes. Each week you’ll get real-world input and tackle all of the audition and self-tape challenges and pitfalls, along with learning ways in which to free your work in order to show up fully on-camera. The material you work on will be a variety of scenes chosen by you and/or your teachers. The work will be recorded and sent to you for your PRIVATE review. And you’ll also do some self-taping at home and bring it in for review and coaching. Here you get to do it all!
This class is not an audition or employment opportunity and there is no suggestion or guarantee of an audition or employment as a result of taking this class.
"Corey Parker's understanding of humanity and the craft of acting is astounding. He's masterful at serving the needs of the actor regardless of their skill set. He is incredibly intuitive, sensitive and nurturing. I believe these to be essential traits for an effective teacher and coach. Studying with Corey has always inspired me to start from a place of joy and love of acting, to dig deeper, to explore the boundless possibilities and to risk it all for my artistry. I'm proud to call him a teacher, mentor, brother, and friend. He's the real deal."
- Shaun Baker, V.I.P.
"Sydney takes someone with great potential and acting skills and unlocks work that is truthful, unique, malleable, and ultimately castable! Syd changed my entire approach to auditions. I no longer have the ‘me vs them’ feelings so many of us experience. When given redirects, I no longer have the crushing thoughts of being judged flooding my brain and hijacking my concentration away from the person trying to help me. Thanks to Syd, I now see auditions as collaborations among artists, regardless of whether or not the end results in a match."
- Joseph Warren, AMERICAN HORROR STORY: 1984
"Sydney and Corey are magic. They encourage us to get back to what is important; relationship and connection. They help us navigate our process in these new virtual times so that we can continue to do the work that we all became actors to do. I’m so so grateful for BGB, it really is the best of the best when you feel lost and disconnected, wondering how to artistically survive and thrive when the world seems upside down."
- Alyssa Mann, DEAR WHITE PEOPLE
"Corey is an exceptional teacher. I not only grew tremendously in his class, but also really found the joy in my work again. I have my MFA and have been to several studios in Los Angeles, but I have never before had a more intuitive and specific teacher than Corey. He possesses a magical ability of taking care of actors while helping them find their voice and what they uniquely bring to a set of sides. I loved my time with Corey!"
- Lexa Gluck, LEGION
"Class is going really well! It’s so nice being in a (virtual) space that is all about connecting with other people. Something really cool happened this week. The day after our class about 1 line costars, I received an audition for a 1 line costar. I used a lot of the tools I learned from class when prepping and I just found out that I booked it! I’m so thankful I found BGB and for Sydney and Corey. They are great!"
- Grant Lewis, CHICAGO MED
"I love The BGB Studio so much! I am so happy and excited to be around amazing and talented people in my class, and to be taught by the one and only Sydney Walsh!"
