"Television and Film auditions have often been a challenge for me, particularly when you get one or two lines and definitely when there are no lines. Stuart's technique allowed me to take all my stage craft and apply it into making 30 seconds as full as an evening in the theater."

Scene Study / On-Camera Workshop
What characters should industry professionals really see you performing? Have you ever had the chance to develop your “dream material”? Stuart K Robinson’s Scene Study/On-Camera workshop will give you that opportunity. In this 4-week class each student participates in the development, staging, and performance of a “power scene” specifically chosen by Stuart K from contemporary and classic film/television scripts, based upon input from the artist. Character development, sensory and improvisational exercises, staging and direction, along with homework rehearsals lead to a digital film style, on-location shoot in which the actors exhibit on-camera techniques in master shots, close-ups, and coverage. The scene is then edited and reproduced providing each student with a DVD of the completed scene. This class is held Thursday nights from 7:00-10:00 PM. The cost is $300 cash or check, with a ten dollar processing fee for online credit card payments.
Theatrical Audition Technique
This class is taught on Tuesdays from 7:30-10:00PM. Geared specifically towards television and film work, this ongoing class focuses on Stuart's specific approach to book theatrical work: that there are 8 ways to get the job. Each week you'll work on something geared towards one of those 8 ways, but that's not to say that he'll cover all 8 in 8 weeks. Rarely is there homework assigned and rarely will this work be put on camera. Topics include, but are not limited to: cold reading technique, interview technique, script analysis, emotional choices, physical choices, pre-reads and producer sessions. This cost is $260 for eight weeks or $160 for 4 weeks cash or check, with a ten dollar processing for online credit card payments. This is ongoing class, please contact us to enroll.
Please note that you are always welcome to make your payment with cash or check, payable to Stuart K. Robinson.
