TEACHING

I have an MFA in Performance Pedagogy (the science of teaching) with a focus in Acting/Directing from Virginia Commonwealth University.  While getting my Masters I taught and designed the undergraduate Directing I and II sequence, as well as developed classes in Acting for Web Content, and Voice-Over/Radio Drama.

Currently I teach On-Camera Acting to some of Hollywood’s most up-and-coming actors at Zak Barnett Studios in Los Angeles, CA.

My specialties include: Acting for New Media (web platforms), Acting for the Camera, Acting Technique (various methodologies), Audition Technique, Text-Analysis, Stage Directing, Playwriting, Business of Acting, and Voice-Speech in relationship to crafting character voices.

I’ve conducted workshops across the United States on various subjects including: Vocal Viewpoints Character Creation, Audition Technique, Pilot/Episodic Season Script Analysis, and Breaking into Regional Theatre Scenes.

Check out the entire list of courses taught as well as my creative endeavors by looking at my CV.

I’m happy to bring a workshop to your neck-of-the-woods (wherever that may be).  Please contact me by e-mailing alexburkart@gmail.com and give me the lowdown, and I’ll give you mine.
