Cold Read classes offer the students an opportunity to grow their readiness to respond truly to imagined circumstances, and to fully breathe life into the pages of action by using their very own unique personalities, shining through the moment they open up their cracks of vulnerability and let the light in ... this is what casting directors refer to as "Strong Choices".

On a film- and TV-set the actor is put to work in a different kind of way than in theatre. There is often no time for rehearsal, and the actor must co-create on the spot with a director and other actors they’ve hardly met. Yet this is where most of our magical films come from. The nature of the film making process creates very specific demands, which the casting department constantly are on the lookout for. “Talent” and the “it”-factor are often ways of describing what makes a particular actor stand out in the competition. But it is not a useful thing for actors to focus on.

Cold Read Technique is the ability to perform text with minimal preparation, thereby reflecting the casting situation and market demands described above. It is meant to clear out kinks and misunderstandings of our profession, and offer a more natural approach for the actor through understanding the various mechanisms and wheels spinning around in the marketplace of film and television. Through practice it is actually possible to become talented, though you may be surprised along the way - it just might already be that you are talented. Now, the question is: do you want to make some magic?

 om cold read 

På et film- og TV-set er skuespillerens arbejde væsentligt anderledes end på et teater. Der er oftest meget lidt tid til prøver, hvis overhovedet der er tid, og skuespilleren skal skabe kreativt på stedet med instruktøren og fremmede med-skuespillere. Alligevel er det ud af sådan en situation at vi kan sidde tryllebundet til skærmen. Denne process skaber bestemte behov, som castere konstant leder efter at få dækket. “Talent” og “naturlighed” er begreber der ofte bliver brugt om skuespillere der udmærker sig. Men det er ikke brugbart for en skuespiller at fokusere på.

Cold Read Teknik er evnen til fremføre en tekst med minimal forberedelse, og på den måde afspejle markedets behov og casting processen, som beskrevet ovenfor. Teknikken skal bruges til at afhjælpe misforståelser og dårlige vaner, og skabe en mere fri tilgang, baseret på viden om de mekanismer der er på spil i film- og TV-branchen. Gennem træning er det faktisk muligt at opøve sit talent, selvom du måske bliver overrasket på vejen - det kan nemlig vise dig at du allerede er fuld af det. Spørgsmålet er så bare: er du klar til at trylle?
