McCarty has Class!!!
What musician picked up a violin for the first time and knew how to play a concerto automatically? None. Just like a musician, all actors, voice over artists and models need guidance and training. That is just plain fact. The best actors are continually training and honing their skills. But, please BEWARE!!! Unfortunately the film and entertainment industry is full of unscrupulous nudniks; even here in Utah. Countless people have come in with stories of con-artist “talent agencies” that sold them over priced, useless classes. That is why McCarty is dedicated to providing real, quality, reasonably priced education with experienced expert instructors working successfully in their field. We encourage you to check us out with the Better Business Bureau, ask any of the top casting directors, photographers, film actors, models and voice over artists in Utah about us or take a look at the plethora of working, successful talent that has come from the McCarty Education Department.
We offer a variety of workshops, summer camps and classes. Since we are always coming up with new, exciting learning and improvement opportunities the best thing to do is make a no obligation, free appointment with one of our New Faces folks by calling 801.581.9292 or emailing email@example.com.
Some of our learning opportunities include:
Introduction to Film Acting
There are different versions of this multiple session class for kids, teens and adults that all give students the basis for a career in the film industry. This class covers the lay of the land( including the system of agencies, managers, casting directors, guilds and unions and how to successfully navigate them, the process of auditions, callbacks and casting, being on set, and loads more), monologues, dialogue, cold reads, deconstructing a character, auditioning in front of a camera and gobs more fun and essential information/ training anyone interested in the film industry.
Improvisation for Film
This is a great opportunity for the actor with some experience to really develop those ‘off the cuff’ skills that come in so handy on set and have oodles of fun at the same time. This class covers the science of improve, team techniques, solo development, comedy improve versus dramatic improve, the importance of improve for drama and, of course, much more. It’s also helpful for models looking to give them the skills to work in speaking commercials and in-person events.
This is not a modeling class. Although is the perfect class for nearly any eleven to sixteen year old. It focuses on elements of etiquette, how to hold yourself, how to walk gracefully, health, wellness and beauty, self-esteem, speaking and approaching people among other topics. It imparts young people with the classic skills of poise, elegance and sophistication so needed in the modern world as well as a timeless refinement that will help them today and for the rest of their lives.
We do NOT offer paid modeling classes
There are many things that a successful model needs to know, including runway walking, photo movement and the techniques for different types of modeling among many, many other skills. In part because of the shear amount of scams, con artists and generally despicable people taking advantage of aspiring models we do NOT offer paid modeling classes. Instead we teach our models gratis, completely free of charge, and because of this we only teach models that we have already taken on. If you would like to be considered for the opportunity to become one of our McCarty models, please refer to the ‘Become a Talent’ section of this website or set an appointment with one of our New Faces representatives by calling 801.581.9292 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember - No one can guarantee you work in the film or modeling industries. Every actor/ model/ VO artist goes to many auditions that they do not get. Although with training, talent, determination and persistence you can greatly increase your chances of being booked and success.
Taking classes from us does not guarantee you a place as a McCarty talent. But, it will give you skills and an experience that can improve the rest of your life.
