Each week you’ll work in-person most of the time, along with a class on Zoom in order to keep you connected to self-taping and what auditions feel like in the virtual space. 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. Additionally you’ll explore your voice as a writer/director, and look at how you can bring that voice to all of your work and career practice.
The material you work on will be a variety of scenes chosen by you and/or your teacher, along with original material generated by YOU. The work will mostly be recorded and sent to you for your PRIVATE review. It’s time to come back to the work you love with a new ownership and perspective, no matter where it happens.
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.
"Johnathan doesn’t just teach the skills you need to be a success, he also inspires you to believe that you will be. There are no tricks or gimmicks. His approach is to simply encourage you to understand that you have all the tools necessary to succeed already within you. After working with him you'll find that you come away not only feeling confident and empowered, but excited and actually looking forward to the very idea of auditioning."
- Zoe Perry, YOUNG SHELDON
"Johnathan is a person of unbelievable integrity as an actor, writer, director and most importantly as a teacher. He is very attuned to the actors he works with and has a sophisticated b.s. meter, which helps him to help you remain true to yourself and the material. Johnathan knows what it takes to challenge actors so they have the best shot to succeed as a working artist. He not only brings a careers worth of hard earned advice, knowledge and practical skills, but if you watch and listen carefully, Johnathan fully embodies everything he teaches."
- Kyle Secor, THE FLASH
"It’s not all the time you come across a spectacular gem. And Johnathan is that. I first met Johnathan when attending classes at the BGB Acting Studio. He was one of our teachers. However, he was/is more than a teacher, he is a guide, a mentor, an earnest and humble human.He is a straight shooter and gets into the work immediately. Very much like a coach helping an athlete achieve their best, their true potential. When class finished, I was bummed because I could have been there all day. I have begun working with Johnathan via Zoom for self-tape audition prep and every second is devoted to the work. Not just the scene, but in me, as a living breathing human being. There’s no ego, just real authenticity. It’s the best."
