Acting for Advertising Part 7, Wednesday, November 12th

Join Nancy and Anna on November 12th 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific for Acting for Advertising Part 7.

This is not a sequel. Each of these Teleseminars reveals a chapter from Nancy's core curriculum, useful Q and A from your peers, plus more marketing and business tips that you can put to use immediately.

Each moment offers unique "behind the velvet rope of the agency/casting scene" advice not available anywhere else.

60 minute lecture, 15 min Q and A... so bring your questions and notebooks!

Here are just a few of the topics you'll learn about on the call:

๏ U-TURN Part 3 of a Radio Autopsy!

- How to recognize and service the CRITICAL mid-story axis point.
- If you don't raise the stakes in the "problem" zone, you risk being "announcery" in the solution.
- Where you must exaggerate escalation of the "want," then snap with sharp contrast into a relaxed "solve."
- The auditions performances that HOOK THE BOOKINGS on scripts written in this pattern do things you might not have thought were tasteful or necessary!
- Hear the audition examples that inspired Nancy to decide to teach this stuff to already-great actors!

๏ Behind The Agent Curtain

- Taking CONTROL of Your Reaction to Constructive Criticism - Defensiveness Can Get You DROPPED.
- Are you "Over-Represented?"...Pros and Cons to playing Hamlet in EVERY hamlet.
- The most dangerous paragraph to overlook in your talent agency CONTRACT.

๏ Actor to Actor--Crucial follow up tips that keep clients booking you REPEATEDLY!

๏ And as always, bring your questions for a killer Q and A!

If you don't win the drawing, just $39 gets you in on the call.

Next Saturday when the winner of this contest is announced, I'll include a link to where you can learn more about the teleseminar and or signup.

    Nancy is the best coach - period. Privates, seminars . . . anytime you can spend with her is of immense value. Plus - she's gorgeous and hysterical!

        Sounds like a very useful Saturday giveaway.
        I'll be performing on stage at the Pleasance on that evening unfortunately, though with time differences I'll probably on the tube home.
        If there are any VO's on this board from London UK let me know! [ insert plug for show here ;) ]

        Good luck to the rest of you though!

            I understand from a couple of pro VOs whose judgement I trust implicitly, that these are the two leading voice coaches in the industry.
            To study at their feet, even telephonically for a short hour would be a special treat.
            Throw my name in the hat please.
            I'm excited.Thanks for the opportunity.

                  This sounds fantastic, just a shame I'm in the UK and I have work the following morning. I was wondering, is this going to be recorded to a podcast? Thanks

                        this would be wonderful. i've been studying with nancy during the past year, but have had to cut back on my sessions due to financial troubles. though i'm fully committed to re-engage before year's end, this would be a great jump-start.

                        i've purchased several of these sessions after-the-fact, but have never experienced one in real time. thank you for making this available.

                          Nice prizes throughout your weekly giveaways, Stephanie. Since I already owned several of the books that were previouly awarded, I wasn't entering. Now I like the other types of goodies being offered as of late, like the Voices.com memberships, etc. However, this week's prize is really great. Sign me up for this one. I'm hoping one of these times I might actually win. (I'm a fan of Nancy and Anna) Crossing my fingers..... :)

                                              Another great Vox daily! I enjoyed the clips of Nancy and Anna talking about agents, branding, etc. I would love to sit on the teleclass if I could. Fortunately it will be starting just when my Promo/Trailer teleclass with Rodney Saulsberry will be ending. I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

                                                                                      Well, you have a lot of choices out there on who you choose to study with -- and you WILL appreciate choosing to study with Nancy! I know that Nancy is the reason I've accomplished the things I have so far in this business!

                                                                                      I've invested in other teleseminars as back up, reminders, and reinforcement of the lessons I've learned -- and would LOVE to win a spot on the upcoming teleseminar!

                                                                                                                  The timing for this call works great for me since I get out of my rehearsal at 8:00 that night!

                                                                                                                  This sounds so good, I might have to pay to get in on the call if I don't win!

                                                                                                                  Here's to hoping!
