About the Event
So many platforms have transferred to full virtual and suddenly YOU are in front of the camera. Whether you're a teacher, a salesperson, a student or even a seasoned performer, let's put YOU in the best possible light (literally) as this class aims and discusses how to present and feel confident in this virtual world!
During this live class hosted via Zoom, we'll discuss some best practices when teaching, hosting, interviewing, and auditioning in this current on-camera performing world. These skills are easily applicable for both work and personal life and should benefit class participants long after our "new normal" has returned to our "regular normal".
As a performer, Laura Voss as a diverse history on both stage and in front of the camera. The skills she developed as a host, actress, facilitator and interviewer could benefit people in many regards, but most particularly those seeking to "level up" and improve their on-camera game. Laura will provide initial pointers, functional tips and discuss "Best Practices" while whether on Zoom/Microsoft Teams or having to record a taped submission.
Class participants will be encouraged to ask questions, share and discuss topics with answers benefiting everyone.If there's interest, we will do some "role play" during class so that students can take turns along with watching someone else "take direction" with the positive improvements that follow. All ages, children under the age of 15 need a parent to join along with them.
