Visionbox Studio is proud to offer a new On Camera Acting & Audition Class taught by New York City actor, Trevor Lyons (Visionbox Ensemble Member). In this four-week sequence, Trevor will provide tools to identify, unlock, and express actors' unique connection to any script in a way that translates clearly and boldly on camera - the key to turning casting directors and producers into your fans and building the network you'll need for a sustainable career. The class will cover a variety of styles and genres, how to handle “emotional” challenges on camera, technical guidelines for stellar self-tapes, and advanced acting techniques for TV and film. Trevor will also provide a "typing" exercise to uncover each actor's unique "dramatic DNA" and the character types they can most effectively leverage through headshots and footage.
Trevor has worked professionally on stage and on camera alongside many notable, professional actors. Recent credits include The Wild Hunt, written and directed by Bill Pullman, a new TV pilot starring Dan Lauria and Tony Denison titled Un$uited for which Trevor received a best actor nomination, Murder at Blackthorne Manor and Bad Nanny (both on Lifetime), Orpheus Descending (Visionbox Studio Theatre), and The Great Gatsby (Constellation Stage).
