We have to embrace it: Auditioning 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 feel daunting.  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. Zoom is now the actor’s professional home!  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.


No matter what you’ve been told… 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.


Be the actor who adopts 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 books work consistently — no matter where in the world you are.

It’s so doable. And this class is going to show you how!


Audition + Self-tape Mastery Today

We are in a unique moment in time when we are seeing each other in virtual spaces every day — when the camera is ON and we’re being asked to be fully present in front of it.

You’re now expected to do highly professional, high-level work when auditioning or self-taping from home.  That does not mean technically; that means working with authority- like you would in a film or show.  Working this way has amazing possibilities, ways in which you can show up full, present, and free.  The online world of now- on Zoom and other platforms- is creating a new reality of intimacy and presence on camera.  This will change auditioning forever.

Don’t you want to figure this out now?  Don’t you want to be ready?

Corey Parker has been at this awhile, and he’s dedicated to a process in which you learn to pivot in this new direction the Industry is calling for by letting go of old habits and trusting more than ever your authentic creative instincts.  You are valuable as an actor, and finding where your unique voice meets every piece of material is your key to powerful work.

Sydney Walsh brings her extensive, real-world experience as a working actor, director, teacher, and coach- along with her deep love of the work, of deep human connection, and of bold choice-making on camera- to each class.  She creates a revitalizing and safe space- in the virtual classroom- in which you get to re-forge a connection to your authentic voice and to the specifics of the story and relationships in any scene on-camera.

Join Corey and Sydney for 6 weeks of audition + self-tape insight and practice, and change your work on-camera forever!

Spots are limited.

Your Teachers

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