3 Day New York On-Camera Audition Workshop

Just in time for pilot season, Berg Studios is excited to announce a unique opportunity: a three-day intensive On-Camera Audition Workshop in New York City with Gregory Berger (Berg), current instructor of on-camera acting at The Yale School of Drama, and private coach to Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’oWinston Duke, Riz Ahmed, and many others.

Berg will lead you in exploring the practical application of on-camera acting technique, as well as the technical requirements of working in front of the camera, viewed through the lens of the high-pressure environment in the audition room.

The objective is to release the actor’s imagination through technique, cultivating authentic behavior on camera. Using the same techniques and experience that he brings to his on-camera acting class at The Yale School of Drama, Berg will help you reveal your own powerful imagination and make it palpable, visceral, and transferrable to the rigors and restrictions of film and television.

We will begin with practical “dos and don’ts,” and then move to positive suggestions, encouraging a commitment to artistic boldness. The class encourages the actor to illuminate the text with bold, provocative choices, rather than illustrating the mundane or predictable. Working this way allows the actor to move past any blocks, or fears, of being “captured” by the camera, enabling the actor to truly reveal their private selves. During each session, actors are filmed and will review their work with Berg.
