Hey! My name is Nick.


I've worked professionally as an actor, model, director & producer for about 10 years now and I currently teach a youth acting class in the Cities a couple Sundays per month (occasionally hosted by LA Talent). I have recently decided to open up the class to any local talent who would like to attend, hence my ad.

 

 ***My next class will be on 6/4 at Merriam Park Library from 2-4pm***

 

 MORE ABOUT ME:

 

 -TV (How I Met Your Mother, 90210, CSI, Bones, and more...)

 

-FILM (The Host, Walk of Shame)

 

-MUSIC VIDEOS (Calvin Harris's "Thinkin' 'Bout You")

 

-MODELING (Ducati Motorcycles, Tiana Vega, and more...)

 

You can also check out my photography/videography website: http://nickbarghini.wixsite.com/nickybphoto


I made A LOT of mistakes early in my career and it really would have helped if I'd had someone to give me advice when I was starting out, so for that reason I'm offering this class for FREE. If you have a child, sibling or friend who is interested in the arts and could use a little guidance, send me an email and we can discuss having you come by for a class (note that the current age range of my students is 3-15, boys & girls). You can choose when to attend, and again, this is not something I am charging for. 


Thanks, I hope to hear from some talented people who are interested in pursuing their dreams!!!

Beginning Acting and On-Camera Scene Study Classes

Date posted: May 15th, 2017

View More >

I am a working actor in on camera and stage; I have studied Acting for over fifteen years and worked professionally as an actor for over ten years, and worked professionally as an actor here in the Twin Cities, Florida, and Los Angeles.

 

I have opened my own acting studio called Moment 2 Moment Studios here in the Twin Cities and will be offering classes this June. I am offering an Introduction to On-Camera Acting class, which will lay the ground work to build up tools for future use in scene study by the end of the class for both stage and film. The class has a basis in on-camera acting, but the skills we learn can translate to both stage and film and to everyday life.

 

The Class:

The intro to camera acting class or Acting Level 1 will cover:

-Warming up your instrument both physically, vocally, and mentally.

-Finding the natural voice of the character. 

-Finding the character through movement, creating the character through various movement techniques.

-Introduction to Improvisation and commercials

-Introduction to Stanislavski and Chekov acting techniques

-Basic scene study for character creation and being confident in your own skin.

-Industry & Acting Q and A.

-As well as final scenes completed for a demo reel. 

 

Class days and times:

June 2nd: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

June 3rd: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

June 4th: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

June 6th: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

June 9th: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

June 10th: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

June 11th: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

June 12th: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

 

Location:

Class location is currently Center for the Performing Arts in South Minneapolis for ease of commute and parking will be off street parking.

 

Cost:  The intro to acting class costs $200.00 or currently $25.00 a session times eight two hour sessions.  I have scaled the cost of the class back for the ease of cost and those who like to know a great deal more about acting, themselves and continue to grow as artists, most other classes are two or three times this cost. Also a good portion of your funds will go toward helping to pay for the cost of space we use on a weekly basis for our class, as I will be renting for the use of class sessions. Please note that once payment has been made, there will be no refunds due to the time-frame of the class.

 

Registering for the class: If you have an interest in taking this course with me which starts a week from today please respond to this email and indicate you would like to take the class and pay your $200.00 class fee which can be sent via Pay Pal to moment2moment.studios@gmail.com  

 

Please email me if you have any questions you might have. I look forward to working with you soon!

 

Thank you
