NOTE: 1MinuteMonologue date change – 11/10/12 (not 11/3/12).
CBSI actor and spokesperson, Canden Bliss Jackson, takes you through what’s happening at Clay Banks Studio International as we roll into the Fall season. Coach Banks has been doing an intensive with his students on character and typing, the production team is gearing up for
the 6th Annual 1 Minute Monologue Contest, and there is a FREE workshop coming up! Press play then read below to find out more!
Coach Banks truly believes that finding your character type will help you book jobs as an actor. It will also allow you, as a creative artist, to know yourself and how to market yourself to a casting director or director. His mantras this month:
-If you don’t know who you are, others won’t either.
-If you don’t know the character you’re playing, others won’t know what you’re saying.
CBSI students have been in a character and typing
intensive for the past 3 weeks and are continuing the assignment this week as well. They have taken their characters from impersonation, to attitude, to personality, and will now be putting their character into difficult situations and finding the uniqueness of their character through this exercise. It has been an intense month at the studio and the actors are working hard to develop these characters in their tool box. If you want to be a part of the process, please contact Clay Banks Studio International to find out about our free workshops for new students. Also, if you scroll to the bottom of this page you will find a coupon for 10% or 20% off your tuition at CBSI if you register before October 15th! This is your career! Get in and get after it!
