Two of LA and Atlanta’s finest actors, Drew Waters and Erin Bethea, are set to lead an audition intensive weekend for Atlanta actors at Actor Boutique – Atlanta’s premier acting studio owned by Emmy Award Winning Actress Natalia Livingston.
With the growing entertainment industry and more opportunities for serious actors than ever before, the need to train Atlanta actors is great.
Auditioning is a skill that can be taught. Proper training is THE key to booking the job.
With 60 acting credits to his name, Drew is best recognized for his role as Coach Wade Aikman on the critically-acclaimed series Friday Night Lights. He has also guest starred and held recurring roles in some of the most successful television franchises of all time including Breaking Bad, True Detective, NCIS, Major Crimes, Magic City, The Lying Game, and Bones. His work also extends to the big screen with films like The Ultimate Life, 13 Hours, Home Run, Parkland, Cowgirls ‘n Angels, The Hit List, The Redemption of Henry Myers, and Mad Money. In his expansive career, he has worked alongside some of the best actors in the business including Kyle Chandler, Diane Keaton, Matthew Broderick, Josh Brolin, Colin Farrell, Aaron Paul, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and James Cromwell.
Inspired by his work with such acclaimed directors as Oliver Stone, Michael Bay, Justin Lin, and Peter Landesman, Drew has flourished as a director in both web series and short films. With the opening of his production company, Argentum Entertainment, Drew has taken a major shift in focus toward his passion for directing.
Drew recently released his feature directorial debut New Life, for which he won Best Director at both the Love International Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Romford Film Festival in London. His many years working as an actor translates into a unique dialogue with other actors when stepping behind the camera to direct and craft the story.
With nearly 15 years in the entertainment industry, Erin brings an extensive and varied background in the world of media and performance. Erin made her feature film debut starring in the #1 Independent film of 2008 Fireproof. Fireproof opened the door to host a two-time Emmy Award Winning series and made her a household name in the faith and family film space.
She has appeared in over 20 feature films, co-starring with industry veterans such as Sean Astin, Eric Roberts, Terry O’Quinn, George Newbern, Candace Cameron Bure, James Marsters, Victoria Jackson and Graham Greene. While living in Los Angeles, Erin also began working as a producer’s consultant. Her connections at major studios like 20th Century Fox, Sony, and Lionsgate as well as smaller independent studios provided a unique platform to help producers with their entire development and release strategy including script work, casting, production, and marketing.
Now, through the opening of her production company, Argentum Entertainment, Erin puts all of that knowledge to work in creating powerful, emotional content with commercial appeal.
During this intensive weekend in June, Atlanta actors will learn practical tools to improve their auditions and book the job. “Nail the Audition” will focus on Audition Etiquette, Building Confidence, Script and Character Analysis, Preparation and Evaluation, Audition Tips & Tricks, Cold Read Technique, Committing to the Moment, Using the Room, Taking Direction, Self Tape Techniques,Memorization Strategies, and more.
