Children’s Workshop


Ricki Maslar & Robert Haas

This seminar was created as an overview of the film industry for aspiring actors of all experience levels. Actors who have had no experience or extensive experience in other mediums will benefit from learning the basic on and off camera techniques that are so vital to a working film actors. From the audition process to film set protocol to character analysis, this is the “what you always wanted to know…” workshop from the perspective of a film actor.

The seminar consists of a 3 hour session as follows…

The Business of the Business with Ricki Maslar and Robert Haas

As a team Robert and Ricki talk to the parents and the children, speaking about the business and take questions for about an hour. We cover the basics of protecting kids in the business, how to be a positive stage parent, when to call and when not to call your agent, what to look for in a headshot, etc. We will then break into two groups… Robert will continue to talk to the parents and speak to them about the business and their roles and also address any questions that they have.

Ricki stays with the young actors and continues to work with the kids, giving them scenes and rehearsing them for a mini showcase and presentation of the kids with scenes to Robert, who will redirect them and work with them. The parents are invited to watch the scenes in the showcase format.

The work with the kids includes some imagination games, some improvisation, talk about auditioning, movies, and performing a paired scene which will be presented to Robert and the parents.
