Create YOUR Character
As an actor, you possess unique characteristics that distinguish you as both a person and a performer. Go beyond scenes for a demo reel. In this class, you will discover how to uncover and exemplify these characteristics to create your own work and book more jobs. Rob Margolies’ direct, creative approach is reflected in the results of his own extensive credit list, as well as the careers of many actors and creators he has mentored.
Prior to Seminar
You'll submit your headshot, resume, reel or links of your work for Rob to review.
This is followed by a one-hour private consultation with Rob on Zoom the day before the live Zoom seminar. Prior to this call, Rob will supply you with notes on your work, your strengths and weaknesses, as well as a list of characters in your wheelhouse and subjective advice on what he would do if he were you, trying to break into Hollywood as an actor and creator.
Private Zoom Call
During the Zoom call, Rob’s goal is to help you get closer to your goals. Character is only half the battle. And the easy part. Concept is equally as important as character, but it requires more thought and innovation because this is how you will get your audience to pay close attention to your character.
Seminar with Group
The next day, you’ll attend the two-hour seminar on CONCEPT. Rob will give you an overview on what concepts and characters make the most successful short film, web series, and TV pilot. Then Rob will break down the elements and beats that every feature film must have, along with the proper format and setup for how to write an outline and treatment. Whether you’re a screenwriter or not, being able to write a 7-10 page treatment for a fantastic concept can sometimes lead to a deal faster than a screenplay itself.
By the end of the class you will walk away with a detailed, personalized evaluation of your strengths and growth areas as an actor. As a creator, you will have the intel on how to outline and treatment an executable concept with a dynamic lead role at your fingertips.
