ON CAMERA FILM/TV AUDITION WORKSHOP... with
Thursday - Friday - Saturday
August 21, 22 and 23
(6:00 - 10:00 on Thursday & Friday evenings & 9:00 - 1:00 on Saturday)
Having spent the majority of his life in the film/television industry, K.C. Clyde is uniquely qualified for the entertainment business. Son of writer/film director Craig Clyde, K.C. literally grew up on the production sets of television and film projects.
He is currently based in Los Angeles and works in film, television and stage both in Los Angeles and New York. He landed a coveted spot at the acting schools of The Actors Studio, Janet Alhanti Meisner Program, Margie Haber, Dennis LaValle, Lesley Kahn and Larry Moss.
He co-wrote and produced his own short film Video Graphic that won best screenplay at the Slam Dance film festival (sister program to Sundance). He then went on to land roles in major television series such as Veronica Mars, Crossing Jordan, ER, Touched By An Angel and most recently Do No Harm. He has landed leading roles in more than 32 feature films and has had the pleasure of working with such notables as Zack Efron, Josh Hutcherson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jennifer Anniston, Joan Cusack, Blair Underwood, Paul Sorvino, Robert Wagner, Jason Mewes, Simon Baker, Kristen Bell and Julie Gonzalo, to mention but a few.
K.C. will provide you with sample audition scenes. You will be taped and your auditions will be played back right there at the studio and uploaded to the Actors Workshop website. He will help you hone your audition skills and will teach you the proper procedures for a professional audition. You will cover headshots, resumés, how to breakdown a script, finding the character, working with the "reader" at an audition, camera techniques and more.
For the Saturday session he will bring in a panel of professionals - agents, directors, producers - for whom you will audition with your headshot and resumé in hand.
Great opportunity to get coached by a bonafide professional who knows the ropes. Don't miss it.
Many of you have dreams associated with the film industry. I’m here to help.
And I’m here to push you. It’s a simple concept.
Film is not life. It’s life on steroids. Life condensed. It’s the illusion of life. That’s the art form.
In film, unlike life, we seek conflict and passion. Life tends to shy away from both. Too complicated. Too messy. Too tough, really. In film, we go after the tough. Messy is good. And conflict, fraught with emotion, is what drives us.
So… find the conflict… bring the passion.
If you do, we’ll sit back and love it.
Check out the website. If it’s a fit for you, join us for the journey.
NOTE: I have arranged to offer Workshop Actors the option of paying for the Workshop over six months. No interest. See the REGISTER page for details. As always, there is a discount for those of you who have attended the Workshop previously.

What's being said about The Actors Workshop...
Michael, we do push our actors to continue their training... and be ready for any and all opportunities that might come their way. Thank you for being hard on them... we need to take many of them to the next level. Being exposed to a working professional of your stature is a treat.

Thank you for your attention and care for the actors. In you, I feel like I have a professional and an artist I can trust.

You are truly gifted at what you are doing with actors. It is such a pleasure working with you. You really have this ability to draw out of the actor their best work. It is a both a gift and something you have worked very hard to obtain and sharpen. Thanks for the opportunity to be in your workshop once again.

This workshop has been such an incredible experience for me, I feel like I've learned so much in just 3 weeks. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best in the business and for the new friends I've made who constantly inspire me to be a better actor.

Attending your workshop was a pleasure and an eye opener. I felt like I got a lot out of it, and even made a little progress. I appreciate your candid and insightful feedback, and I do plan to attend again in the future.
~ Joe Vargyas
Michael taught me everything I know! OK that's a lie! But definitely out of all the acting teachers I've had he's one of the ones made a mark. He gave me some of my favorite tools that I pull out an use at every audition! He teaches you how to OWN the audition! GO MICHAEL!!!
~ Christina Marie Thurmond
Michael, I can't tell you how much I value your input. Each session I realize more your enormous talent and feel so fortunate to be one of your students. I've worked on sets with you a few times, but had no idea of your great talent. I'd take your workshop year-round if I could. I loved every minute of it.
~ Gwen Maw
Thank you so much for your focus and direction. This is the 3rd time I’ve taken the Workshop and I will be back. So many “Ah-hah” moments. So much more to learn from you. You direct with passion and determination.
~ Stacey Turner
Michael is actually a working actor with terrific insight into acting techniques as well as character development. He also has many practical tips on things like auditioning and "on the set" etiquette. Best of all he's a great teacher and able to communicate his ideas clearly.
~ Teri Cowan
I took your acting class to get over my fear of public speaking. I finally found my passion in life. Being in front of the camera as an actor has changed my life, my expectations. It has rocked my world in a way I could never have imagined. I seriouisly owe it all to you. You changed my life for the better adn I cannot thank you enough. You have a special place in my heart.
~ Justin Doxford
We've had many actors take Michael Flynn's Workshop. After some hard work on their part and phenomenal guidance on Michael's part the progress is evident! Michael knows how to tap into an actor's raw talent and polish them into a better version of themselves. Our actors have gotten more callbacks and bookings since Michael Flynn entered their lives. Thank you, Michael!
~ Liz Knight, Knightstar Talent Mgmt.
Michael knows actors, how to work with them and how to get the best out of them. Certainly, he is an accomplished actor himself and becoming a well-known director of significance. However what is most important for the actor developing his or her craft is Michael's insights, understanding and ability to work with you to draw out the best work in you in your journey to become an outstanding actor in your own right, proficient in your acting craft. That is what is most valuable. That's why you do this workshop.
~ Maikel Bailey
Just wanted to say thank you for your two classes I took earlier this year. It's paid off. I booked a recurring role on "Granite Flats" and booked another role on a docudrama called "Gold Fever." I really value what you offer with your years of experience.
~ Trevor Snarr
I really enjoyed working with Michael and I love the energy, enthusiasm and passion that he brings. I highly recommend The Actors Workshop to any actor that is serious about perfecting their craft. Michael is a great actor, director and has great insight that will help you improve your skills.
~ Mark Webb
Loving this class. Absolutely loving it. I leave with a thrill every night... proud of myself for doing it, excited to try and push more, intrigued by the specifics.
~ Joanna Larsen
Michael Flynn is undoubtedly a master at his craft! He is also a great teacher! I highly recommend "The Actors Workshop" to anyone wanting and willing to experience growth and insight.
~ Leslie Stott
Thank you, Michael! You have taught me so many valuable skills. My auditions are already better. I'm excited to come back to the Workshop.
~ Angie Engemann
Michael, thank you for a wonderful workshop! It was surprisingly tough, but I learned a lot. Sad that it is already over, but I'm planning on attending the next one.
~ Brian Moss
I am really enjoying this class! Learning so much. I wish I could just soak it all up like a sponge and remember everything you talk about. You have such a gift of being able to paint the picture and pull stuff out of people they didin't realize was there. Thank you.
