We have to embrace it: the Industry will never be the same.

However, you have a unique opportunity right now to be inside (and ahead) of the change that is happening- as the Industry embraces a new way of working. During the best of times, auditioning on-camera can be a challenge. Add in a global pandemic and the Industry just barely starting up again, and you may be feeling like your career will never be the same.

You’re right. It won’t be!

You’re now expected to do highly professional, high-level work when auditioning or self-taping from home. So what does that mean for you, an actor who has craft and talent? It doesn't mean getting caught up in the technical challenges; rather showing up and working with authority- like you would on a film or show. The online world of now- on Zoom and other platforms- is creating a new reality of intimacy and presence on camera. And this has changed auditioning forever. Now is the time for your craft and your audition practice to evolve. This requires letting go of exactness, of a need to control every piece of the work, of trying to be what “they’re looking for” and to “get it right.” It’s being brave enough to throw the rules and restrictions out the window.

Just following some perceived prescription about auditioning or self-taping is the antithesis of showing up and being seen. Your best audition is actually a living, dynamic piece of work — happening in real-time and moving your audience on an emotional level.

So… Be the actor who embraces a new way of auditioning and shows up on camera with presence, with ease, fully dropped into the story, all cylinders firing. Be the actor whose self-tape grabs the attention of every casting director, director, producer, and executive. Be the actor who continues to book work consistently — no matter where in the world you are.

It’s completely doable. And this 8 week class, led by the brilliant Corey Parker, offers you a process with which to revolutionize your audition preparation and practice- in an intimate virtual space- giving you the tools to push past uncertainty and self-consciousness and making sure you bring the most valuable thing you have to offer into the room (or on a self-tape): YOU.

Over the course of these 8 weeks, Corey and two other BGB Master Teachers will challenge you to hone in on your authentic voice and all the power YOU hold every time you show up for an audition or self-tape. You’ll explore the work right from where YOU are now, and acquire practical tools to level up your on-camera work by bringing your boldest, truest, most joyful self to every audition or self-tape. The best part? You’ll get ahead of the game by doing it in a new, intimate online classroom where the work is proving to be deeply personal, authentic, and present. Working this way has amazing possibilities. It’s what our new reality offers, and we’re embracing it fully!

Join BGB Master Teacher Corey for 8 weeks of audition and self-tape mastery, and change your work on-camera forever.

The work...

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 and 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 on Zoom and sent to you for your PRIVATE review. And you’ll also do some self-taping at home and bring it in for 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.

After surviving a brutal pilot season, I took Corey’s class to find whatever it was that I thought the casting directors and producers and network executives weren’t seeing in me. Pretty quickly into the class I realized that they weren’t seeing me because I wasn’t giving them me. I was giving some bizarro version of the me I thought they wanted. I will forever be grateful to Corey for showing me how to bring myself to the material, and ultimately, the joy back into my work.

- Paulina Bugembe, MARVELOUS AND THE BLACK HOLE

Corey reminded me how important we are as humans first, and his work in class helps hold a metaphorical mirror to help you face yourself as you are now in life and bring that beauty to your work. After each session, I feel like I can do anything and attack any scene without having to sacrifice any of my own quirks and personal hang ups. In short, he just helps you be a better person and that in itself brings a new honesty and vulnerability to your work that breathes life to every scene. My artistic appetite has grown tenfold since being a part of the BGB family!

- Michael Druck, CASTING DIRECTOR

"Alex’s coaching was a turning point in my acting career. Not only did she help improve my skills, but also my work ethic and confidence. If you want to grow as an actor, both professionally and artistically, I recommend Alex Wright. The extent of her knowledge and experience is beyond inspiring. Thank you Alex for all of your support and kindness!"

- Gracie Doan, DARLING COMEDY

I could gush, but I won’t. I’ll just say a sincere thanks. A month with Corey has been mind-blowing. The best coach/master I have ever worked with. Thanks for inviting me in!

- Gillian Fischer, UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENT

"This is such a great self-tape class! Having Risa as a teacher is such a gift and I keep coming back! This class really takes the mystery and fear I have about self-tapes away and I now feel ready and confident to send one off! I have taken a handful of classes at BGB and I always learn so much! It’s a wonderful community to be a part of."

- Cassidy Brown, GREY’S ANATOMY

My work is better because of the class I took with Risa. She helped me tremendously with my self-tapes. I am grateful to have taken this class and will be back for another!
