Auditioning 101 with BRUCE BLAIN is a no-nonsense, nuts and bolts, on-camera Auditioning class created specifically for the newer actor and designed to build confidence heading into Vancouver Casting rooms.
For the absolute beginners, we cover all those little things most people don’t even think about, like how to walk into the room, and what to say, and what not to say. We cover technical items like eye-lines, how to slate, finding your mark and light. Our intention is to get the newer actor comfortable through real practice and take the fear out of auditioning.
For the slightly more seasoned actor, learn to book more consistently. In a little over seven years as a working actor in Vancouver, Bruce Blain has worked on over 80 projects – everything from recurring on Riverdale to Short Films – He books, on average, 1 in 10. He loves auditioning. Somost of the class time is spent getting comfortable actually saying the words out loud, finding some meaning and intention out of what little info you get on a one-page audition. He’ll teach you to love auditioning too.
Stanislavski, Meisner, Adler…these are authors of the most famous acting methods known, none ever had to audition for 3rd Cop from the left. If you’re an aspiring Film and TV actor, learning to consistently book “guard #3” or “waitress” roles is your first step. And that’s what we do in AUDITIONING 101. We’ll tackle auditioning for your first Oscar winning performance later down the road.
Bruce Blain – Bruce Blain has been a salesman, a bar manager, a managing editor, an entrepreneur, a carpenter, a teacher, but in 2004, while living in Thailand, he became a film, TV, and voice actor. He quickly established himself, booking scores of Films and TV Commercials, most notably working along side Eric Roberts in “The Mark” and Ewan McGregor in “The Impossible” in December of 2010, leading him to the conclusion, finally, that no other career would do.
After a 13 year stay in Southeast Asia, he moved to Vancouver to pursue acting full time. Since arriving there, he has recurred on such TV shows as; Once Upon a Time (9 episodes in Season 7 as The Desk Sergeant), Riverdale (5 episodes and counting as VIC), Supernatural (as Dwight Charles and Coach Phil Evans), along with day player appearances in most of the usual Vancouver shot shows, and such films as Max 2: White House Hero, Leprechaun: Origins, Rampage 2 and 3, and a whole host of Hallmark and Lifetime movies of the week; AND he has been the Campaign Voice for several VO campaigns.
Bruce Blain, is a working actor, and he couldn’t be happier. (Oh, and he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in the award winning short film “Mad Santa”.)
