NEVER AGAIN LET A COLD READING STAND BETWEEN YOU AND THE PART!
4 PART VIDEO SERIES HELPS ACTORS
Never again let a cold reading stand between you and the
part! "COLD READINGS MADE EASY," a 4 volume series
is a survival kit for the working actor. Getting a good part in a film,
becoming a series regular, getting a lead in a mini-series - that's
what every actor wants! A good acting job and a chance to perform at
a level that allows you to really express your talent and creativity.
And the only way to get that chance is to audition
BUT - doing a good audition means doing a good "cold
reading." Getting the part is not about whether or not you can
act, but about whether or not you can do the cold reading! Don't lose
a dynamite part because you can't cold read at the level at which
you can act!
With "COLD READINGS MADE EASY," you will
receive a practical, step-by-step video guide to successful cold reading.
Each volume contains a workbook, scenes, and a checklist to enable you

is an excellent choice
UCLA Daily Bruin
it seems that starving
actors are everywhere. Fortunately, prior to an audition for
a musical, I got some coaching tips from
Noelle Nelson's "Cold Readings Made Easy"
to the hundreds and even thousands of dollars that actors pay for coaching
lessons and acting schools, this video course is a relative bargain
the way, I was invited for a second audition."
