On Camera with Kate Todd

 

Kate is the committed professional with a heart of gold. As an actress who grew up in front of the camera and on television her empathy and sensitivity to young talent is unparalleled.”

-LEWIS BAUMANDER

 

What is covered in the 8 week course:

HIGHLY TAILORED TO THE ACTOR
Each student is ensured a highly tailored coaching experience every class. Kate has established that all actors be challenged with new character archetypes and script genres. I believe it is crucial for an actor to be comfortable playing a multitude of different roles.HOW TO BREAKDOWN A SCRIPT
In the first class, Kate teaches students ways to breakdown a script. This tool is invaluable as it gives young actors a baseline on how to approach the text.ALLOWING EXERCISES
Students will be guided through allowing exercises. Actors will be taught how to experience each primal emotion on a molecular level.

 

RELAXATION AND POISE ON THE MARK
Kate maintains a strong focus on relaxation in front of the camera. Each class has particular attention on this aspect of performance. I teach this through specific exercises. They will learn how to integrate these moments of stillness and relaxation into their scenes.

 

PERSONAL MENTORSHIP
Kate offers over 16 years of experiences of life in the business to help students overcome any challenges, concerns or adversity. We want to see our students succeed both professionally and personally.

 

FUN AND INTERACTIVE EXPLORING ENVIRONMENT
At the LB Acting Studio, it is our hope that every student always feels the joy of acting. Students connect with their peers during their time in my classes. They create lasting friendships with like-minded individuals. We maintain a safe, positive and interactive environment where actors feel comfortable to take risks and grow.

 

TAPING OF CLASS WORK AND NOTES FROM COACH
At the end of the 8 week session, participants will be sent a taped copy of their final performance. Kate will provide a detailed report on their strengths, what needs improvement, and feedback on their final auditions. Additionally, Lewis Baumander watches each of the tapes and provides his personal notes.

 

The discussions at the beginning of the classes take shape from Kate’s own experiences in the industry. This ‘food for thought’ lecture is meant to inspire, teach and provoke discussion.

Can’t wait to see you in class!
