On Camera: Audition & Acting Training w/ Daina Griffith


Learn the ins and outs of auditioning successfully in front of a camera during this three-week course.

Students will work on commercials and film scenes as well as how to learn how to form a resume, where to get headshot/reproductions, what to wear to an audition, audition etiquette, and how to be comfortable in the audition room.

Taught by Daina Griffith (Dark Knight Rises, Hollidaysburg, Where’d You Go, Bernadette, WGN’s Outsiders) this class is a great way to learn how to manage your nerves while learning how to make your commercials/scenes REAL.

Each student will have plenty of time in front of the camera working on their craft, and plenty of opportunities to ask questions about the industry.

Praise From Past Students

“Though I was a complete outsider to the audition process, Daina’s class gave the tools and confidence to put myself out there. She has a warm and friendly personality that made workshop interactions easy as well as insightful. Specifically, I learned to better format my resume, headshot, how to approach ‘the room,’ and what to expect when I get there. I enjoyed it so much I considered taking it a second time.”
—Mike A.

“Because of Daina’s audition workshop, I feel confident that I can do good work in any audition that comes my way. She gave me a system of approaching an audition that’s straightforward and practical – she demystified the whole experience!”
—Olivia V.
