A one-of-a-kind teacher, for your most empowered audition ever!

We are thrilled to partner with Chris Chalk in this exceptional 3-week intensive workshop. Chris loves to teach and is committed to doing this transformative work with actors. As a busy working actor and director, he’s carved out the time to lead these 3 empowering classes, bringing his unique gifts to BGB.

Working with Chris is instantly invigorating, inspiring, and dare we say — electrifying!  His infectious, disruptive approach to auditioning will challenge you, shake you to your core, and ultimately bring you back to your authentic voice and to the kind of work that books work.

Chris loves auditioning. He loves everything about it and he believes you can learn to love it, too.

Using on-camera audition work with a variety of material and genres, Chris will guide you in the practice of creating freedom in your work, so that you personalize your process and show up in every audition as a joyful force to be reckoned with. This is not a stale plug-and-play audition technique — this is an undeniable, edge-of-your-seat, leave-them-wanting more audition practice that will forever change how and why you work.

Experience freedom in every audition. Empower yourself to audition mastery.

The Work

Fall in love with every aspect of your audition. Devour new scripts, embody never-before-seen characters, create long-term relationships with casting, all so you can drop the mic after that audition and leave them wanting more. Take total ownership of your audition by getting present, getting personal, getting connected. Navigate the treacherous waters of your mind to become an audition champion, and crack your personal code for how to create an unforgettable audition — Every. Single. Time.

With the guidance of Chris Chalk, you will mine the real keys to audition success: getting really specific and making bold, personal choices, using any text, no matter how much information you have about it. In the end every creative team is looking for someone that is undeniably unique, empowered and free. Only you can decipher how to give that to yourself, so Chris focuses on getting personal and specific with you. What’s your style? What’s your unfair advantage? What can you and you alone bring to this character and story?

Your work will be on-camera for all three classes. Your recorded work will be sent to you via Dropbox to view after class. You will work from a variety of material sources, some scenes you bring in, some that are assigned. Chris utilizes feedback and discussion to process how you audition, hone in on what’s working, and chip away at what’s not.

There is plenty that you’re not in control of in this business, and in auditioning. But what you can control, and what Chris wants for you every single audition (for the rest of your career), is that when you walk through the door it’s impossible for them to deny your talent, sparkle, and fierce uniqueness.

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.
