In this lively seminar, actor, director and faculty member Kurt Naebig talks about the job of the actor and the process of auditioning. He introduces students to Michael Shurtleff's Guideposts--the common language we use at ASC. These markers help the actor with script analysis and lead to active, personal, relational choices. Required for all new students.
