You get good at what you practice.

The On-Camera Scene Study with Shane Connor opens up and examines your relationship to craft and preparation, in turn offering you total freedom to integrate authenticity into your work. Physicality, life, rhythm, and your uniqueness come together organically so you can playfully craft and trust your relationship to the source material, whatever genre it may be. This class gives voice and structure to the often unseen creative work that goes into fully embodying a character within a larger story, be it an audition scene (or a self-tape) or any piece of material you tackle.

Shane brings his extensive, award-winning, real-world acting experience — along with his deep love of the work, characters, and storytelling — to each class. He creates a revitalizing and safe space in which you get to re-forge a connection to your authentic self, to your humanity, and to the story. Whether you are looking to “hack the audition” or invest in your love of the craft, this is the home of your artistic practice. Here you get to practice what you love with mindfulness, heart, and dedication every week.

This class is for actors looking for an in-depth weekly exploration in how to make any material truly active and fully embodied with the power of their unique voice through story.


With over 20 years experience in theatre, film, and television around the world, Shane’s wisdom, experience, and passion offers you the unique experience of working with an Industry professional who has been a series regular multiple times, appeared in hundreds of episodes of television, carried lead roles in film, won (and lost) awards, and knows this work and the Industry from all angles. As an actor who also writes and directs, and has taught for decades, Shane’s passion for sharing his knowledge and experience allows you to discover your own most present, specific, and personal work so that you can bring your fierce talent directly into the audition room, and beyond.

The On-Camera Scene Study is the place to experiment, take risks, dive deep- in finding the most meaningful connection to your own powerful voice and to the story you’re telling, and achieve greatness through practice every week.

The Work

Since the work is being done online in the Zoom space, you’ll learn very quickly that being on-camera (on whatever device) allows you to let go of any idea of performing for it and move into being affected by what the camera captures. You’ll work with film and television scripts, audition pieces and full scenes, and are also strongly encouraged to work on original material.

Each week, experience the freedom there is when we replace absolute choices with story, examining the difference between the two. You’ll learn to build the history of what brought you to a scene or line, after which the outcomes are endless.

As you hone your preparation practice, you uncover your secret weapons of creativity, so that your work becomes even more authentic to who you are, more unforgettable to the Industry, and (most importantly) more exciting, vital, and fun for you to perform.

From Shane:

In a LIVE virtual studio, we will look at what has been working for you, enhance that, add to it, and then in a practical, no-bullshit way, look at what hasn’t been working for you. We WILL deal with that, and give you practical, pragmatic, honest solutions, so that whether in the room, self-taping, or on set,  you bring… you. This is my commitment to you. Commit to life, everyday life, in the same way, and therein lies your practice, your art.

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.
