Kids Fundamentals with Erin Boyes – Deadline

Erin works as an acting teacher and coach, combining her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology with her many years of experience as an actor and industry professional. She has studied and worked throughout the US, Canada, Spain, and Jamaica. Her extensive resume spans over 18 years and covers many networks, including SyFy, Netflix, Lifetime, AMC and Hallmark.

This year, Erin is nominated for a Leo for Best Performer in a Motion Picture. Last year, she earned two Leo nominations, including Best Performance in a short in “Three Days”, which she also wrote and produced, and won Best Performance in an MOW for “Waking up to Danger”.  Having previously produced two award-winning short films, NOMANSLAND and Fruitcake, Erin is in post-production with her first feature film “FIVE”, which she wrote and produced along with her producing partner, Dani Barker.

Course Description

This summer workshop will be fun and creative!

Commercials! We will explore commercial “copy” and collaborate to write commercials for products chosen by the students. We will work on the basics of commercial acting and being “in the room” for auditions.

Auditions! We will use current Film and TV materials to help understand the tone and structure that different projects require, introduce the fundamentals of auditioning or brush up on auditions for the more experienced actors, and try new techniques and creative ways to audition “in the room” and in “self-tapes”. Actors will practice taping each other, using lighting and being a reader for their “co-actors”.

Improv games will be used to warm everyone up, get the creative juices flowing and allow for a goofy, fun, non-judgement, safe space for young actors to explore their work.
