FOR ACTORS

CLASSES AND CONSULTS

HELLO! I'M KEN LAZER, CSA

Serious actors ask me all the time “What can I do to take my acting career to the next level? I’m going to auditions, working hard, and I’m not getting the results I want to get. What can I do to make myself stand out and book more roles?” I’m a casting director in the CSA with nearly 30 years experience in the casting industry. I’ve booked thousands of projects and I know exactly what it takes to help you stand out from your competition and book more jobs. * I’ve been teaching actors since 1995 and I love helping actors who are serious about taking their careers to the next level. When I am casting roles for films, TV, and national commercials, I can see anywhere between 30 to 40 actors for the same role. Many of the actors in the audition look alike, sound alike— and 95% of them are all making the same mistakes and never get a callback or book. I would love to meet you in  class (via Zoom) and share these secrets, tips, and tricks that I’ve gathered over the past thirty years which help actors advance their careers. 

I’ll see you soon!

* Individuals results will vary.

The Secret Formula of Every Good Audition

In Class #1,  you will learn the TOP 3 most important secret techniques that EVERY professional actor needs for a great audition. You will do 2 separate
commercials to practice these tools so you can understand exactly how they work and I will
prove why they will help your auditions.
Expect to get up in front of your camera at home several times to fully understand
these techniques. You need to learn these techniques before moving on to the next
example.

The Power in Two Person Castings

In Class #2, you will see how things change when you’re auditioning with another person—whether you’re
auditioning for a role with a friend or cold reading with another actor in the casting
room. You need to know what techniques make you shine. Bring an actor, friend or
significant other of the opposite sex for this class so you can better “see” how these
techniques will be proven to work!

Technique & Application

In classes 1 & 2, we practice numerous techniques and now have the understanding of how & why they work. In Class 3, we practice with audition copy to understand how to choose the right tools for different auditions and how to best apply them when necessary.

Legit Auditions

TV & Film auditions are completely different from commercial auditions, but the techniques you’ve learned can be applied for a great audition regardless of the setting. In Classes 1-3, we practiced the tools with commercial auditions, but in Class 4, we learn how to apply those tools to legit auditions for TV & Film.

Please bring your own sides.
