Audit Night

Welcome, all.

Fall Workshop

A place for actors to workout with and master
The Mechanics of Believability. On-camera. Every week.

We train in The Mechanics of Believability, the techniques developed by Lieux Dressler to address the needs of the industry. At its core, The Mechanics of Believability is a physically-based script preparation system. We show you how to explore text thoroughly and efficiently as an actor to find interesting choices, rather than immediately narrowing options as a director or using the popular but ultimately defeatist filter of “what THEY want.” Do it. Do it now. Do it Again. These are the director’s primary demands from the table read to the final take. For a creative and successful relationship, an actor must be able to fearlessly face a director and be flexible in his work. We don’t teach you how to act, we show you how to get there quickly and reliably with no drama. ​

It doesn't matter how talented you are if the people who are in a position to hire you don't see it in the room—No matter how unusual the circumstances.

There is nothing tougher than giving a believable performance when you have pages of script in your hand, even tougher if they just revised it or radically changed the character. This 8-week intensive on-camera workout focuses on time-tested and dependable audition techniques that keep you sure-footed no matter what they throw at you. You will learn to prepare for theatrical and commercial auditions quickly, consistently and confidently and learn cold reading techniques that will make the pages in your hand virtually disappear.

Step by step, we’ll guide you through:

♦ Cold-reading Technique
♦ Memorization
♦ Character Development
♦ Taking Direction
♦ Preparing Emotionally
   Engaging Material
♦ Hooking Blocking to Memory

Customized material will be chosen for each member of the Garage. Since the Garage is a place for working actors, members are free to bring in audition sides or material they need to work on.
